Or disproving the hypothesis that Ohio sucks...
Hoosiers love the joke: " Why do all the trees in Indiana lean to the East? Because Ohio sucks!"...Naaaa...It really doesn't.
I think my GPS hates me. I would venture off so much from all the excursions that she stopped giving me directions. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear“ Well, smart pants just find your own freakin way. I’m takin a smoke break”
I am relaxing in a Holiday inn in Celina Ohio. I have been through quite a few towns. I think the best photo I got the whole day was about my first. I crossed the state line and saw this white church off the road. Sitting on the steps was an old lady by herself reading a book in a blue hat and dress. My first town destination was Pioneer. I like the name. I think its claim to fame is that it has the longest ( and only) stoplight in the state. I kid you not I could have toasted a grill cheese sandwich for as long as I sat there. The downtown was dead other than a junky garage sale. The nearby town was Cooney! The name of our beloved family cat growing up. There was not much to the town other than one old building with the sign “Doggone it’s fun to save at Cooney’s discount” Cooney would have hated that.
Roundhead, Ohio named after Chief Roundhead. Not much there other than a fire dept and a church and not one picture of a Roundheadian.
Jumbo Ohio! You gotta love a town that named itself after an African elephant displayed by P.T. Barnum. I thought I would find an elephant statue or “Jimbo’s Jumbo Discount Tires” What did I found? A boarded up building and a trailer park. Hmmm…Possibly retired carnies?
I saw no farms for sale. Yeah, for Ag! Many farmers were in the field today. I saw hay being cut! The country roads in Ohio are straight unless there is a graveyard in the way.
Tomorrow I am going to check out Grand lake. We stopped here at a Wendys one time traveling through and Aaron refused to eat because the town smelled like carp. Sheesh! ...What a goof.
