Yesterday, Friday, we had the day off.
’s cousin and husband showed us their area of Cal . When we have been to this area before, we have never driven around. Ohio
Isn’t this a cute sculpture at the city library?
First we went to Smucker’s jams visitors center located in
. We did not know all the food companies owned by Smucker’s. They own Crisco, Jif, Pillsbury, Eagle Brand, Foger’s coffee, and Hungry Jack. There are other companies I cannot remember at this point. Orville, Ohio
Yesterday was a rainy day – a good day to off the bike, but it was a gloomy day to take photos as you can see. We stopped by a Swiss cheese factory. Doesn’t this place look like it is in
We also stopped at Lehman’s Hardware in
. This place has ‘everything’, plus everything for a non-electric Amish home – such as gas refrigerators, gas freezers, etc. What a place! We also went to Keim Lumber store – there isn’t another lumber store like it in the Kidron, Ohio !! Beautiful store! US
After meeting the cousin’s children and grand’s, we returned to their home at – tired!
This morning when we woke up it was raining hard. Thank goodness it had decreased to a light rain before we left Orville. It did rain most of the morning, and most of the afternoon. It seemed like it would rain every 20 minutes. However, tonight when we returned from a restaurant the moon was shining. We hope this is a good sign for tomorrow.
Here are photos I took yesterday and today of farmsteads – you can see the weather conditions! We are still on rural roads. They are beginning to be very hilly -thus the reason for
’s lower mileage today. Cal

We did not realize
has oil/natural gas. Yesterday and today we have seen oil/natural gas pumps. How would you like a pump in your side yard? Ohio

Tonight at dinner we were talking to a person who has a friend in this area who is from
. He has been in Texas for two years drilling for oil – they are capping the new wells just like in Ohio . North Dakota
I have seen many rural cemetery – I took a photo of this one today.
