I’m heading out to my Mom’s house today in Indiana, and I read that the Oxbow is filling up with some nice birds, so maybe I can convince Mom to go over with me. Hopefully I can get some nice pics to share.
If you would like to learn more about the Oxbow, go to www.oxbowinc.org. It’s a cool place that is being protected, thank goodness.
That theme song must have run through my brain 1000 times last night. I’ve never stayed in a hotel so close to Cincinnati before. It was like vacationing at a neighbor’s house…weird.
Did anyone who lived outside of Cincy watch that show? They must have…it was on for how many years? (Watch, Geoff will know the answer to that.)
Gordon Jump will always occupy a special place in my heart…
Thanks, Shannon! Have fun in Gatlinburg! Say Hi to Dolly for me.
I found a fun website recently and wanted to share it with all of you.
It’s www.forgottenoh.com and it’s all about Ohio’s haunted houses, abandoned buildings, ghost towns, neat old stories…even a bit about Cincinnati’s “subway” system…it’s down there, collecting dust, while traffic builds and builds up on I-75 and I-71.
Lots of fun facts and things that make you go hmmm…
I have the best friend ever. Shannon came up to our room after work and took us to dinner at the Revolving Restaurant at the top of the hotel. The restaurant actually rotates slowly so your view changes as you enjoy your meal. It takes 1 hour 15 minutes to make a complete circle, so we weren’t breaking any speed records. The girls liked it, but they kept insisting on standing on the part of the floor that doesn’t spin, and they would gradually rotate away from our table and I would have to go retrieve them. They thoroughly enjoyed the bread, but ignored the rest of their meal.
Isabelle news: Today was her first dentist appointment. I am so gosh darn proud of her, I could burst. She was PERFECT. She sat still, she didn’t complain, she obeyed directions, she sat through a fluoride treatment and thorough cleaning and scaling. She got a “plaque grade” of 95%…she only had a little plaque on the bottom front teeth and no tooth decay or alignment problems. Boo yah!!!!!!
After dinner, we put on our suits and went swimming in the heated, indoor pool. Ahhh……
The girls have just fallen asleep. The swim really tuckered us out. Isabelle had on water wings, and she did a great job with “swimming” but Lorelei was not getting into the water and just sat on the steps and pretended to swim. I haven’t SWUM? SWAM? SWIMMED? in a long time. Anyone want to help me out with the proper form of “swim” for that sentence?
