Hey! I just noticed that this is my 200th post! I've been so pre-occupied that I didn't even realize it until just now (after I published the post, that is). Cool!
See my new header? That was John after I got him out of the house. That was taken in the snack bar at Crystal Cave in Kutztown, PA. I thought since he's bald now, I should have a bald picture of him on my header. When he gets his hair back, I'll put a new one up.
So like I said in my post yesterday, I got John out of the house and we drove to Kutztown, PA to see Crystal Cave. I've been there several times before and I think, you've seen one cave, you've seen them all. But John had never been there, and it was a nice day, so we took a nice long ride up to see it.
One of the things I had forgotten about Crystal Cave is you have to walk up lots of steps to get to the cave. Then, once you're there, you have to walk down a bunch of stairs inside the cave, then back up again. Needless to say, I got my workout in!
I was going to put some pictures up showing the stalactites and stalagmites but they looked lame, so I didn't. I had to get them on Google images because when we got inside the cave I discovered that my batteries were dead on my camera. I had to wait until after the cave tour to buy batteries in the gift shop. You can click on the link of you want to see the website and check out some pics there.
Just a few miles down the road, at the other end of town is the restaurant I used to own with my ex-husband. We ran it for 6 years before we closed it. It was cool though! The restaurant was actually a big stone building, built in 1740 and expanded in 1800 something and again in the 1970s. It even had it's own resident ghost (Susanna Levan Kemp)
Anyway, I wanted to see it because I hadn't been there in a few years. After we closed up, someone else bought it (named it Season's Grille) and they ran it for 6 years and it recently closed. I walked around the building and could not believe how dilapidated it was!!! I wish I could have gone inside to see it. I did peek in the windows. I found a notice on the front door from the tax office that it was being sold for delinquent taxes, for $18,600 and change! I know he paid well over $300,000 for the building and the business!
It was a really nice day for us! John got back in a really good mood. He ate well, was laughing and is back to his old self again. (thank goodness!)
Today John had to get some blood work done, so we headed out to Abington Hospital to their lab.
On the way back, we stopped at the library for a while, then we decided to see a movie.
We saw GI Joe. Actually, it was pretty good! Lots and lots of stuff was blown up. Buff guys for me to look at and a chick with a tight black outfit for John to ogle! There was even some Ninja stuff! It's not going to win any Oscars but it was entertaining!
So here's the other picture the nice girl at the snack bar took for us.Boy is my face red!
