A Day With Family

Today was a cold, nasty rainy day. It was 43F (6C) when I got up this morning and I think that was the high for today.

The plan for today was to meet at Gordon’s sister, Carol’s house. She and her husband, Rick live near Cincinnati. Gordon’s son and his wife and their kids were meeting us there around 1:00 p.m. Unfortunately Gordon’s daughter and her husband and kids couldn’t make the trip from Columbus.

We picked up some food for ourselves at Taco Bell and McDonalds on the way to Carol’s and had a good time chatting with Carol and Rick. When Ian, Tracy, Caden and Lilly arrived, we ate. Carol had gotten pizza for them and she was so sweet to reimburse us for our food that we had purchased.

Rick and Carol just returned from Heidelberg, Germany where Rick had some medical treatments as they aren’t covered here in the U.S. by his medical insurance. Suffice it to say that for all he’s gone through he looks very well but is still a ways from a full recovery. We complain about our Canadian medical insurance but I have to say that what we have is much better than what they have here in the U.S. even though it really costs us!

We had a great afternoon. Gordon had a good time playing Grandpa and everyone is tired out. We got home shortly after 7:00 p.m. I also called to make our arrangements for an RV park in Columbus for a week starting Monday.
