Reverse Road Trip - Day Before

I moved out of the senior community today. I feel twenty years younger already. Tomorrow, I will hit the road with the Family Dog and a Family Human for the return trip to California, which I had thought would not happen for quite a number of years, if at all. To quote John Lennon, life is what happens to you while you're making other plans.

Today, I marveled at the fact that, for six months, I felt like I've been living very sparsely, and yet it took a lot of boxes to pack and ship that supposed paucity. I took a box of canned goods to the synagogue for the food bank - there are people who need it. I had lunch with the Grandhumans. I'm having dinner with the Next Generation Humans, and we're leaving in the morning. if all goes well, next stop, Zanesville, Ohio.

Does Zanesville, Ohio, have anything to do with Zane Grey?

Hot diggety! I looked it up on Wikipedia, and it does have something to do with Zane Grey. Feast your eyes on this:

Zanesville was named after Ebenezer Zane, who settled there in 1797 with his son-in-law, John McIntire, at the point where Zane's Trace met the Muskingum River. The city was the second state capital of Ohio from 1810 to 1812. The National Road runs through Zanesville as U.S. Route 40. Novelist Zane Grey was a descendant of the Zane family and was born in the city.
