And I was the recipient!
Thursday found me in Ohio
a little retail therapy.
Mom and I have not just spent a day alone shopping in ages.
No kids, no grand kids...just us.
While I am not a huge shopping person,
we had a great time.
Pat Catan's, Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's
flea market/junk store.
Everything that was missing in my craft supplies is restocked.
(and then some)
We ended the day at this great little
independent restaurant a little off the beaten path
(by Youngstown standards)
Off the beaten path where I live is another dimension...
I saw this great poster on the wall.
Unless you are a native of Youngstown and the surrounding area
or an extreme coaster enthusiast,
a trolley car park buff,
that name means nothing to you.
but for the ones who do know
there are fond memories of
a great carousel,
the Lost River,
the flying cages,
two great wooden coasters
so much more.
The park is gone,
but the memories will always be there.
At any rate,
I asked our waitress if she knew anything about where the poster came from.
She sent out the owner of the restaurant
and he told me that a friend of his prints them
that they are available on Ebay.
He left to go and look for the Ebay site for me
came back just a few minutes later
with a cardboard sleeve
with a poster in it
GAVE IT TO ME!!
What a nice gesture from a stranger!
I was thrilled and when I left, I went straight to buy a frame.
It is now hanging in my paint room
where I can see the memories daily!
Stop over and like them on Facebook!
Great place, great food, awesome pierogies!
One special part left of Idora Park
on my bucket list to ride it once more.
