AUGUST 5, 2014 – Angie and Rick, our best of friends from the great state of Texas, visited us for a couple of days starting on Thursday, July 31. They are on their first “car trip” since selling their motor home.

Of course, this put Marsha in her “Tour Guide” mode and “Memory Creating” attitude. They arrived on Thursday, July 31, and we spent the evening catching up since we last saw them in October, 2013.

Bright and early, Friday morning we were off on Marsha's “Tour of Canton.” With the Football Hall of Fame activities in full swing, things were pretty busy at Marsha's normal tour stops. We did get to drive by the Football Hall of Fame and a few spots downtown but the beautiful Women's Club Gardens were blocked off.

They did get the treat of climbing the 105 steps up the hill to President McKinley's Monument....a “Rocky” moment indeed.

Since Rick is a Vietnam Veteran, Marsha thought it would be a nice idea to show him the Stark County Veterans Memorial.

We then headed to Berlin, OH, and Amish Country were we visited several tourist areas and sampled some wine at three wineries.
