At the end of our trip across Canada, we dropped into Ohio. Our main reason was to see an old friend of Frank’s but I had even bigger motivation. Cleveland is the location of the original house from “A Christmas Story” and I planned to take our annual Christmas card photo there. I didn’t expect much from Cleveland. I imagined it to be kind of dreary and depressed. Was I ever wrong!
We arrived at our downtown hotel in the middle of weekday and it was eerily quiet. Greater Cleveland has over 2 million people. 14,000 live downtown and over 100,000 work there. The super clean streets, flanked by a mix of modern and beautiful old buildings, were virtually empty. Once work got out, it was busier but never seemed too crowded.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame rocks. It is well-worth a trip to Cleveland all by itself. Frank and I spent a full day here. It was informative, amazing and just so much fun!
A Christmas Story
One of my favorite movies of all time is “A Christmas Story.” I watch it at least once every Christmas and it never fails to make me laugh. I was so excited to visit the original Ralphie’s house and incorporate the photos into our Christmas card. Could I get Frank to wear that pink bunny suit?!!!
