Saturday in Zanesville

Got up today and Donna called reminded me my nephew and his wife  lived close to Zanesville and to call them and see if they wanted to visit with Uncle Sam. The answer was sure, so we made a date for them to come to the motel before dinner.
Patrick, his wife Geae, and their two boys Spence & Drew arrived at about 05:30pm. We went to Ardonetto’s Restaurant in Zanesville. It was a very nice Italian Restaurant with a top rated pizza. Sam had the Lasagna, Geae ordered pasta with white sauce and prosciutto and the rest ordered pizza. All the food and the service was excellent.

Sam  had a great time as he hadn’t seen Patrick and his  family in several years. Of course I had to promise to stop for another visit when Donna & I head east in the 5th wheel.
Tomorrow the group will be returning from Washington DC and we will relieve the drivers for the return trip to Jefferson City MO. Until then
be safe. Sam & Donna.


  1. Hey Sam, from what I could see those pizzas and the lasagna looked pretty darn good! Glad you all had a good time with your family!

  2. Oh I saw that basket building a long time ago on a road trip film on PBS. What a cool way to advertise your business and what you make! Very interesting.
