What interesting trips have you taken lately? Maybe it was close to home or far away from home. Either way – please discuss.

I was in Cleveland over the weekend. Cindy and I flew to Ohio to celebrate our daughter’s upcoming wedding.
Lauren is marrying a Cleveland area lad with a warm and delightful family. They threw a wonderful party in Willoughby about 20 miles east of Cleveland.

A dusting of snow greeted us. We stayed at a historic bed & breakfast in Willoughby. I would highly recommend The Homestead with its three course breakfast. We also had a fine dinner at Gavi’s in Willoughby.

We checked out the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame amd lunched at the legendary Tommy’s Restaurant in Cleveland Heights. The D.C. sandwich with Falafel, veggies, mushrooms, sunflower seeds, sesame sauce and cheese was out of this world.

We drove by the stadiums where the Browns and the Indians play. Lauren and her fiancé, Luke Wolf, scored tickets to as Cavs game as we were leaving town.

We flew Southwest and went through Baltimore each way. Everything went well. I love the playful spirit on Southwest. A flight attendant announced: “We have lost a pair of black rimmed glasses so please check the area around you. The pilot can take off without these glasses but he might have trouble landing without them.” It’s nice to hear a little humor at the airport.
