It had been a long time since we had gotten much of the family together to visit with Dad. Kathy and the kids, Samantha and Peyton, flew into
Columbus on July 5 and we (Peggy and Roger) picked them up at the airport. The next day we went to the farm in McConnelsville and surveyed
the recent storm damage and inspected Zach's remodeling efforts. Later, we were joined be Jim, Jeri and the Kinney girls at Dad's place. Then
we all went to dinner at the pizza place on Rt 60 North where we were joined by Karen and David Kinney, Tom and BZ Dugna, and, later, Zach
Dugan. Samantha and Peyton were anxious to see their cousins they hadn't seen for a long time and couldn't really remember. It was a short visit,
but it was good to get everyone together. It was hot! About 100 degrees all weekend!

Storm damage to old barn at Tom and BZ's place. It's amazing more slate didn't come off and it didn't blow down.
