I must say I have been waiting for this trip to Tenuta's Deli since I got here. I was not disappointed. I felt like I was in Italy again! The sights, the smells, the atmosphere is pure Italiano for me. Here is big sign in front of store. They have a lot of Paninis they make, very good. Debbie… MORE

I told my friend Debbie that I would like to see Lake Michigan in the morning so, guess what? Her brother Al, who is a great photographer, came and took me before the sun came up over the lake and took some pictures of me before sun came up and just after. I made a new friend. His dog is… MORE

She always has books to return and always seems to buy books they have on sale. There is also have a bookmobile, but we didn’t know where it… MORE

Greetings!   I reached Walkerton, Indiana safely!  Unfortunately, the internet has worked about four total hours since I got here.  So I am hoping that it doesn't go out again before I can post to my blog. The repairman will not be out until Tuesday. My hostess and I have been very busy since… MORE

Have you ever had a Breaded Tenderloin?   I have!  Indiana Peggy and her DH took me to a local eatery for dinner.  And I ordered the Hoosier Tenderloin (with onions, tomato slices, pickles, lettuce and mayonnaise on a seeded bun) with coleslaw and onion rings on the side.  Yum!  It was so… MORE

Yesterday, I arrived safely in Indiana, delivered by a friendly UPS driver to Indiana Peggy's front porch.  It was a pretty hot day and it was very warm in my box.  I was so happy to come inside and cool off.   Peggy told me it is quite warm for June and very dry, like much of the country.  I… MORE
