Today I had a chance to see my old home town. I spent 29 years in this town. Many changes over the years, some good, some bad. No pictures, but I did get to spend time with my brother Michael in Parma Ohio, and get the grand tour of Cleveland. It had been many years since I visited the North coast! Quite a difference from what I remember.
Later in the day, I visited Perry Ballinger, a Ham Radio friend of mine that I have known since the early seventies. I was honored by the Massillon Amateur Radio Club with a lifetime membership in the club, and given a wooden hand carved desk display with my call sign. Perry presented me with the very nice gift, and it was all a great surprise
Finally, in the evening, I was invited to visit with friends of mine that I worked with in the community theatres in the area. Thanks to Carla, Cathie, Pat, Jim, Jodi, Todd, and Michelle for a wonderful evening. Just before we were preparing to leave, it began to snow. It was a beautiful snowfall, which reminded me of winter years ago, and was a fitting end to my visit in Canton.
Tomorrow, I have another plan for the day! I am spending the next few days with my sister in Brookfield, Connecticut. The forecasters are warning of a snowstorm, which I hope to be ahead of during my travels.
Hotel: Motel 6, North Canton, Ohio
