I spent the first half of Wednesday at The Park and got to meet some super Guests from New Mexico, California, Texas, Wisconsin, Kansas, and Indiana. I also got to spend time with another staff member, Jamie, who covered for a Volunteer in The Heritage Center, just off The Atrium. Jamie is exceptionally knowledgeable about John Henry Patterson, the founder of NCR, and gives tours at The Patterson Homestead which is operated by Carillon Historical Park. She’s always great fun to explore history with.
At home, after loving on four wonderful pooches, I took a sixty-minute nap before feeding the dogs and trotting off to dinner with Laura. We had a great chat and a super Mexican meal at La Pinata. My goal was to write from the deck; however, I made the mistake of crawling into bed with three new books and I was gone. I woke at 11:00 PM to let the dogs out to potty and I was back in bed and off to another dimension.
Yesterday, at The Park, I purchased three new reads, two of which are on The Dayton Flood. I now have IMAGES OF AMERICA: THE GREAT DAYTON FLOOD OF 1913 by Trudy E. Bell, THE FORGOTTEN: HIDDEN HEROES – DAYTON 1913 FLOOD by Johnnie L. Freeman. The third non-Dayton flood book is ON THIS DATE IN DAYTON’S HISTORY: “Remembering The Gem City One Day At A Time” by Carillon Historical Park’s own, Curt Dalton, a phenomenal historian, and author.
The temperature is now 55 degrees and is only expected to climb to a high of twenty more degrees by 5:00 PM. The sun is finally giving more glow to the neighborhood. We’re at that time of the year when I am waking to no sunlight.
It’s time to get ready so I can meet bus No. 17. My lunch is prepped and ready to go into the lunch bag for transporting to The Park for the entire day.
Make it a great day!
