After the Fleetwood tour, I traveled north and stopped at the Walmart in Norwich, NY. Marilyn and Chic live in Oxford, the next town to the south, and Marilyn met me at the Walmart and invited me to stay at their house for the night. Chic is on her yearly trip to the Jersey shore with a friend of hers. Their house is a great summer home on a lake that is spring-fed and stocked with bass. It's insulated for winter, but they live in it the other seasons - winter is for Florida and warmth!
I had a nice supper and homemade apple pie, pleasant conversations, and playtime with Kelsey the cat. On Tuesday morning, I even got to play pickleball again - they taught interested members of the local YMCA to play! There were 8 people and a nice mixture of newbies and veteran players. Afterwards, I had a nice long, hot shower, then lunch at a great local restaurant with homemade soup and desserts. Yum!
I hope to go back to visit on my way south so I can see Chic also. Besides, I like them, their cat, and their place!
