To Pennsyl-RAIN-ia or BUST !!!
Indeed it was almost "OR BUST", but I made it for the wedding and was so glad I was able to make the trip!!!
Here's what threatened to stop me ... (by the way, in the midst of it all I did learn to "Praise the Lord no matter my circumstances!!!")
First it was the switch to RESERVE fuel just after a potential gas-stop exit. Here are Dan (left) and Cletus looking over my bike. You may think CITGO is not a service station, but I beg to differ! (Thanks Cletus). And Dan of Ohio's DOT kept us safe with his vehicle with caution flashing lights.
Next - THE CHAIN INCIDENT
Still in Ohio, just south of I-270 and Columbus, the engine revved and then nothing. I pulled off quickly, there to stay for over an hour. I love you PROGRESSIVE with roadside assistance for my motorcycle. Thanks Shamrock Towing and Carlos for getting me safely to ASK - Grove City. Thanks to Austin and the rest of the service department at ASK for getting me back on the road by Friday afternoon -- about 24 hours after I had stopped.
Carlos of Shamrock Towing -- You're GREAT !!!
Thanks to the ladies at the Headline Styling Salon for letting me sit in their lovely shop and hear great stories all around while I knit on my Sockotta sock. Thanks to James Wheeler of Hilton's Guest Assistance for getting my hotel arrangements straightened out for me in the midst of my drama.
And a VERY SPECIAL THANKS to my cousin Jon and his wife Linda for being wonderful hosts. Their home may not look like a B&B from the outside but I found this little basket of goodies sitting in my guest room.
Jenny and Brad were wed in Christ Church at 12:30 pm on Saturday. I was there to read scripture as originally planned.
Here's the happy couple (and perhaps they were a little hungry by this time -- Jen is posing, actually).
The chocolate and raspberry and blueberry wedding cake.
Here's some of the goodies we had after they cut their beautiful cake.
Oh yeah, back to the people -- really what it's all about, anyway ...
Here's my brother-in-law and his youngest (oldest was the bride).
I made it back just after midnight on Sunday. Ahh it's good to be home so I could see my little birdie. What a treat to come home to.
More to come later this
