First Night--Indianapolis

We left home around 4:30 am and arrived in Indy at 5:30 pm. The highlight was our stop in Columbus. We had a wonderful lunch at the Schmidt Sausage Haus and Restaurant in the Victorian German Village section of Columbus. We ate at the buffet which contained delicious sausages, sauerkraut, corn beef and cabbage, hot German potato salad, cooked red cabbage and lots of other specialty German foods that couldn't possibly be on anyone's diet. We then drove past the nondescript Ohio State Capitol and around Ohio State University. What a huge University. Although we are tired, it was a very pleasant drive and we listened to part of the very entertaining audio book Marley and Me.

It is good to know that your trip is progressing well. I think Indianapolis is a pleasant first night stop. The only problem I had with this city was that it has three motels from the same chain. I stayed in one, but the first night I had to travel to all of them before I found the right one.

And, yes, you have a book that offers humor for the long country miles. Marley and Me is a wonderful book. I'm sure if they had cats, you would be thinking of Jennifer and Terry as you listen to the launching of this family, beginning, of course, with the lab before the three children.

It's in the 80s here, and Rusty says it is the same in Boston. I must conclude that you're having similar temps.

Have a good next day!
Love, Mrlyn

Yay! I'm happy to hear that you had a nice first day!

Also, I meant to tell you guys that some of the Panera Bread restaurants offer free wi-fi access, so if you ever are near one, you can stop for lunch, update your site and be on the road again.
