F 1 D 0 - 2004 05 25 at 0937 Kettering Ohio. Spent the morning and afternoon with Jeff's family here. Very very nice. The report will seem lacklustre because it's the little nuances of brilliant humour that set them apart as special. We had lunch at a buffet chain that I cannot remember right now. I'm not brilliant in the morning. It's a wonder I got the computer set up on the internet here so quickly. Our trip from Greater Dayton to Cleveland included a stop at the Flying J truck stop. This place is a haven for gadgets and things related to cars and of course, professional truck drivers. I still maintain it's a great place to come in. Look at the wonderful 12 volt cooking supplies, or the microwave oven, complete with a power inverter. They offer a WiFi internet service for only 2.00 for an hour, or the price drops if you intend to use if more often. We continued toward Cleveland, and realized how late we were running. We expected to just have a coffee of something with my friend Ann, but we were late, and hadn't eaten, so we had a late dinner at The Gold Coast Cafe in Lakewood. Our food experiences on the trip have been glowing, wonderful things. Our experiences with coolers isn't so happy. We found the seat where the styro cooler was sitting entirely wet. The ice leaked out without our permission, and soggied up the rear seat. Jeff was *not* amused. So now we seek another cooler, and hope this one doesn't just keep things cool, but also holds water securely as the ice melts. We will check out this town, and in particular, the places here I visited when Mark used to be here. Sometime in the afternoon, we'll wind up, and head to Akron, where we will connect with Mark in his new home - about an hour's drive from here. That's all I know.
