Our short stay in Ohio

While in Ohio we went down towards Columbus to meet at a BBQ restaurant to visit with my nephew Scott, his wife Angela and their daughter; it was really nice to catch up! None of us had ever been there but the food and service was awesome!
This was the house we lived in when I was born up until about 1955. Back then it was an upstairs/downstairs duplex rental. It was in Canton just up the street from the Stark County Fairgrounds. As you can see it’s for sale; I looked it up and it’s only $69,000!
It had a huge side yard!
In 1955 we moved to North Canton to my childhood home on Lipton Avenue. Its good to see the new residents there have good taste in vehicles, a VW, we had them since 1955!
This is me with my brother Geoff standing under the tree I brought home from school in the 5th grade for Arbor day; It’s grown a bit!
While in the area we visited the NFL Hall of Fame. It was started when I was just little and was only one building then!

Right next to the Hall of Fame is the McKinley Monument where President McKinley is laid to rest along with his wife.

Behind the monument was this hill where our dad took us sled riding; there was even a picture of my dad, my sister, my brother and myself on our 6′ sled going down this hill in the Canton Repository newspaper! I noticed now there’s a sign saying NO Sled riding!
While in Canton I was able to connect with my brother Geoff and Terry Wolski and Tom Barnes; two great friends from high school.
