So, he decided that the 70 mile drive to the Ott House in Emmitsburg, MD was worth the effort. I readily agreed since it is one of my favorite watering holes. The atmosphere is great and the food is OK. Try the Wings for an appetizer.
Gerry and I arrived early only to find out it was trivia night and the large tables were all reserved. We managed to beg enough that they put two tables together and made room for the 10 of us. Cassie, Jack, Elizabeth, Bella and Lambeau plus Jane & Jr, Kenny, Gerry and I all squeezed around the table. We also lucked out and it was $5.25 pitcher night for Yuengling beer. What more could anyone ask for, wings and good, cold draft beer?
|Bella, Cassie, Elizabeth, Jack & Lambreau|
|Kenny, me & Gerry|
|Jane, Larry Jr & Kenny.|
Then I got beat over the head for not knowing the New Haven phone question since one in the group thought I was alive then. Shameful to treat an old man that way.
We all broke up fairly early since Jack & Kenny had to leave for work early and Jr & Jane had a long drive back to their hotel. We had a great time with all of them and enjoyed the evening very much.
Earlier in the day ( 7:45am ) the roofer stopped by to measure the cabin so he could order the material. After he left we took a drive to the roofing supplier north of Shippensburg, PA via a round about drive. Tom Tom decided we needed a scenic route to make it interesting and had us turning right and left all over the place out in the middle of corn fields and farms. We finally found the place and selected bronze as the color for the metal roof.
We stopped in Shippensburg to have lunch at a local diner and Gerry enjoyed her meal, but my meat loaf left something to be desired. I will try something different the next time we go there. There was a fire down the street and we had entertainment while we ate. That helped with downing the meal.
Then it was on to some geocaching in the downtown Shippensburg area. It is an old town and the houses reflect that. It would be possible to film an 1800s movie there with a few modifications. Six found geocaches were added to our collection with one being a very interesting find. The others weren't that difficult, so it was a good day.
That was our interesting day, how was yours?
