We had a great weekend. Yesterday we took off for an antique mall we heard about 2 hours south of us. We love to drive through Ohio. Once you are outside the bigger cities, it is like driving through history.
We love the miles and miles of century old houses, working farms that are nothing short of picturesque and then the old towns with their ornate 1800s buildings and town squares. We also love the bonus of the Amish buggies that come along. This trip, a major road was closed and so our two hour drive turned into an adventurous 3+ hour drive, but that enabled us to see a few other small towns that we would have missed.
My 13 year old granddaughter, Ginny, is a gladiator in training for her local Renaissance Faire. She takes sword choreography and she is very good at it. This is her second year and this year she also gets to be a Barbarian. Funny, but when I was 13 It never occurred to me to want to be adept at sword play or to be a barbarian.
