Even though we divided our trip to Hershey up into two easy days, we still felt like we deserved to sleep in yesterday. So that’s just what we did! Of course, we really don’t need an excuse to sleep in. Our normal routine is to stay up late while I write, and get to bed sometime around 1 or 2 AM.

Once we were up and about, Miss Terry made a wonderful apple crisp, which we shared with Greg and Jan. Still piping hot and served with her homemade whipped cream, and washed down with an ice cold glass of milk, it was delicious.

It’s that time again, and I had a lot of work to do on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, and Terry, Greg, and Jan needed to stock up on supplies at WalMart and Sam’s Club. So they went off to get their shopping done, while I stayed home and worked.

Unlike Elkhart Campground where we are always getting visitors, with nobody to interrupt me, I got a lot accomplished. In fact, the time went by so fast that before I knew it it was 6 PM and my stomach was growling. The terrible trio returned home from their shopping expedition just about the time I started debating hunting down one of the many Canada geese that live here at the campground and roasting it.

They were as hungry as I was, so we spared a goose and drove to Fuddrucker’s for dinner. Fudd’s makes some of the best burgers in the country and we had a good time talking and bantering while we devoured them.

Back at home, I did some more writing, we watched some TV, and I sent a letter of recommendation to the Mercer County Fair Board in Celina, Ohio, urging them to hire Cara Muhlenkamp as the new permanent manager. Cara was filling in on an interim basis during our rally earlier this month and did and excellent job. We have worked with a lot of fairgrounds personnel over the years, and Cara stands out as the best of the best.

After being cooped up inside all day yesterday, I need a break. So if the rain holds off today, we may run some errands and give Greg and Jan a tour of the local area and some of our favorite places we have discovered in our previous visits. There is so much to see and do around here that we could never cover it all in a full summer, but we’ll do our best.

  1. Glad to see that you are spending time in our area. With all of the great places to eat and also to see some great sights. Don’t forget about some of the hidden treasures in the area, and also hope that you can come with some “Opera Fudge” as in is the best confectionery you will ever have. A lot of historical places and cemeteries as well. Enjoy!

  2. Awww Nick…you know you can’t put up a picture of Miss Terry’s Apple Crisp an not share the recipe with us as we are dying to have a bite too. Looks so yummy…you’re making us hungry out here in blog land.

  3. Nick your pictures along the Pennsylvania turnpike brought back some
    wonderfull memories. Sixty years ago today we travelled the Turnpike on
    our way to Washington D.C. on our honeymoon. It was so beautiful along
    the way that we decided to head back the same route to Mich. instead of
    going to Niagara Falls. We finally did get there 25 yrs. later.
    Have a great day.
