We arrived here on Wednesday to visit our daughter, Beverly, and her boyfriend, Gene.
On the 8th, we drove to Hart, MI for the Escapees Chapter 6 rally. We met up with friends we had not seen for a long time, and made some new ones. We ate out well, had a lasagna dinner, had a potluck breakfast, and hitches pastries. Lee & Marsha Squires took us driving around the area including Little Au Sable Lighthouse. . We did tour Country Dairy where they milk 1300 cows 3 times per day. They have a total herd of 2500. We did see a calf that was less than 2 hours old being licked by its mother. .
After the rally, we drove to New Buffalo, MI on the 13th, where we had planned to visit Maureen Lubke. Before we had left the rally, Jimmie & Penny Hamann called and invited us to stay on his farm It was a wonderful stay. We went to Casey’s the first night, and the second night, Penny fried Bass and Crappie for us. Great visit with Maureen, Jimmie & Penny.
We left New Buffalo on the 15th, and drove to Shipshewana, IN to visit Richard & Joan Micelli (our VCR parents). We even got to see Steve Masterson and his wife who were staying at the same campground.
Then, on Thursday, the 17th, we drove to Trotwood, OH. We went to dinner at Chappy’s with Gene and Bev. Last night, Amy, one of Bev’s college roommates who plays French horn for the Dayton Symphony, was able acquire comp tickets for us at the Benjamin & Marian Schuster Performing Arts Theater for their performance of “American Mosaic”. Today, 15 of us went to lunch with Beverly’s boyfriend’s family, including cousins from Kansas. He has a delightful family.
