Best of Friends

Our best friends from home, Bud & Linda, were coming down from NY to visit for a few days. We met them in Titusville so they could see Don & Jessie and visit. We left Bonnie’s and got to Titusville when the phone rang, it was them and I had told them that we would meet them when they arrived. Well Linda told them how to get thru town and we would wait for them at a certain spot to guide them to Don & Jessie’s. We headed back to the meeting point and as we came around the corner, here they came. We pulled out in front of them and off we went to the Big Barn, where we would be staying. We both got set up and unhitched their car then went down to Don & Jessie’s. Surprise! We had told them that Bud & Linda were coming but they had forgotten. My Linda made baked chicken for dinner, we all ate and visited into the evening.

The following day Linda, Bud and us went to Drake Well State Park for a walk. They were quite busy down there as they were celebrating “Oil 150”, 150 years since the discovery of oil. We didn’t visit the park cause they were gettin’ quite crowded. We instead went for a walk down the trail that runs between Drake Well & Oil Creek State Park. We walked on the trail for about 3.5 miles, out and back. Bud walks daily and today’s walk set a new milestone for him at 3.5 miles.

After our walk we rode around showing them some of the sites from Linda’s youth. Then we went to Cranberry to look for shoes for Linda #2, Success she got three pairs and a pair o’ Crocs for her & Bud. After shoppin’ we returned to the campers and then down to Don & Jessie’s for dinner. My Linda made a blueberry pie, with fresh blueberries and Linda#2 made spaghetti & meatballs for dinner. We visited into the evening and then all returned to the campers and turned in. Another fine end to a fine day.

The next morning we said our goodbyes to Don & Jessie and all pulled out for the Clearfield area, headin’ for the Grange picnic.

That’s all for now. Hope to see ya down the road as we’re

Dancin’ on the Wind.
