Day 25: Home!

I had trouble getting up this morning so was a bit late getting away.  After a nice breakfast which included french toast, I got out into a drizzly morning with a bit of fog.  The colour of the trees as I went further north became less sporadic and more vibrant.  What a beautiful drive.

Found something really interesting at the Kia dealership in Sandusky, Ohio yesterday.  They have special counters that have a pull out desk in the front so that people in wheel chairs can use it to sign papers.  I thought that was really meeting the needs of their customers.  Even if you only have a couple of handicapped drivers who would need it, the word would spread that ALL of your customers matter and you’ll go to any length to make your customers comfortable.

I took a brief detour to the Hobby Lobby in Rochester to pick up some Rub ‘n’ Buff which I used to be able to get in Canada but no longer can.  I got several tubes of them in different colours and also found a couple of Christian books and a small decorative wooden box for one of my smaller chess sets that is rather special.  I had lunch in the same mall and then got back on the highway.  Traffic was sparse most of the time.  I arrived in Ogdensburg by 3:45, topped the tank, picked up my parcels, and crossed the border.  Picked up Budge at 5:15 and home and everything unloaded by 5:30.

What a great trip!  Hoping to FaceTime with the kids tonight and then it will be early to bed.  I might just sleep for a week.  Happy Thanksgiving, Canadian friends!

About mysm2000

Having taught elementary school for more than 25 years and been involved in many amazing technology and curriculum projects, I find I've developed a myriad of interests based on literature I've read and music I've heard. I've followed The Wright Three to Chicago, Ansel Adams to Colorado, The Kon Tiki Expedition to Easter Island, Simon & Garfunkel lyrics to New York City, Frank Lloyd Wright to Fallingwater, Pennsylvania, and have only just begun.
