Road Trip to Western Pennsylvania

We left the house early Friday morning heading to western Pennsylvania to see our son in his college comedy cabaret.

We head from Baltimore to western Pennsylvania in the Blue Note.

Before we even hit the highway we stopped to get an oil change.

Since two of my sensor lights were on we also had the car scanned to find out it was nothing serious so on we drove.

Naturally we stopped at Starbucks. The sandwich shop next store served us lunch.

In the town of Breezewood, Pennsylvania, while switching from the Interstate Highway to the Pennsylvania Turnpike, we stopped for coffee and lunch.

We stayed on the toll road for 101 miles ($17.25 in tolls).

Our accommodations were at an AirBnB Bed and Breakfast which I’ll review soon.

Then after dinner at a local diner we headed to the university for an evening of songs — especially numbers from modern musicals.

Some of the cast was extremely talented and everyone — cast and audience — had fun.

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
