Alex and I survived a long trip back to Ohio for the 4th of July weekend last week. We had a blast visiting family and friends throughout southern Ohio.
I was kind of disheartened to see how dead my home town has become. It’s really tough to see a town literally disintegrate more and more each time you go home. I wish my Mom would really consider moving to someplace that has more for her than Lynchburg but somehow I doubt that’s going to happen any time soon.
Gallipolis, Ohio was absolutely beautiful. Like a Norman Rockwell painting. I really enjoyed seeing a town that people take pride in and really put money and effort into restoring and improving.
Of course I couldn’t go without mentioning all of my old friends in Cincinnati that I had to see. It’s been at least 4 years for most of them…some even as much as 14 years. It was fantastic to see you all and hang out, even if for a brief time while I was in.
Sorry to say I didn’t see my sister while I was in Ohio. We had set time aside on Sunday night to do dinner but somehow I guess she wasn’t aware of the plans, even though that’s what we agreed upon. I’m sure she’ll say it was my fault but she just said “I’m not driving two hours to see you for an hour and drive home”. Well, I’m not either even though I traveled 1000 miles to Ohio. Oh well, next time I guess.
Traveling with Alex was a breeze and we both had a great time. Ate and drank a bit much but it was a lot of fun.
