Geneva On The Lake House Vanishes

Posted by LOTGK on June 7, 2013

I have been going to Geneva On The Lake for over 50 years. Way back in the 1970’s erosion from Lake Erie began affecting the beach and the highway that leads into the small resort town.

One house I always kept my eye on coming in was a small gray house on the lake side of the road. Every year, the house edged closer to the sea. The houses on either side of the gray house methodically succumbed to the ravages of the sea.

Last year, the little gray house was on the verge of dropping over the side. It was now abandoned, windows boarded up, doors nailed shut, a mobile home sharing the lot. Last week coming in for our first Summer visit to Geneva, the house was gone.

To me, that house was almost as iconic to Eddie’s Grill, the most popular joint at Geneva On The Lake. I stopped, snapped the photo above and continued to Geneva looking back in the rear view mirror once or twice before pressing on to Eddie’s Grill.

Mountain Heritage Inn- Gatlinburg – Honeymoon Suite

Posted by LOTGK on May 20, 2013

The Mountain Heritage Inn located on River Road in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, is a quaint Inn with standard rooms, deluxe rooms, cottages, Roundettes, and suites. When I’m on business, I usually stay at the Cottage, Room 127 but when Patty (My wife) and I go to Gatlinburg, we move around a bit. Last time, we stayed in the Honeymoon Suite, room 201.

The cost was $124.00, just $25.00 more per night than the deluxe rooms. It was a bargain. The suite has a nice size bedroom, king size bed, TV, window, a good size bathroom, a ready room, large living room, with fireplace, a heart-shaped jacuzzi, kitchen with stove, frig, sink, dishes, etc, and a wrap around second story balcony. There is even an elevator so you do not have to lug your luggage up stairs. It did come in handy.

The room was clean, roomy, felt very secure, (Door locks were tight with no wiggle) and the area well-lit. A great place to stay when visiting Gatlinburg as the Inn is just a several minute walk to the Parkway.

Best Jeep Wrangler Tire Pricing

Posted by LOTGK on May 8, 2013

My Jeep Wrangler needed new tires and I visited the usual suspects (Tire Dealers) in the area. My first stop was at Sears Automotive. I was looking for the standard Jeep tire, 15 inch, 235 size. The salesman started to show me the new wheels he just got in. I let him go on for a few minutes and finally asked about the tires, (Those little round black things that look like donuts)

He went to his computer, pecked a few keys, swooshed the mouse a few times and stated, “We have a special today, all four tires mounted and balanced for only $890.00. I asked if the wheels came with that quote! He replied, no, just the tires. I said thank you but I will continue my search. As I was walking toward the door he actually said, you are wasting your time, the best price is right here. I continued walking to the exit door.

My next stop was Pep Boys on Southern Blvd and Route 224. They were busy so I kindly waited my turn. The salesman at the counter yelled next (which was me) and I proceeded to tell him the tires I needed. He said I was in luck for they were having a sale today, (Heard that one before) and if I bought three tires I would get one free. I asked for a total out the door price. It was $776.00 and a three hour wait. I thanked him and said I will look elsewhere. again, I heard the same boast, You won’t find a better price anywhere better than here. I continued to walk to the exit.

Finally I made my way to B&R Wholesale tire on Meridian Road in Youngstown. I walked in and the counter salesman asked what he could do for me today. I told him I needed 4 Jeep wrangler tires. He said he would be right back. He went to the back room and a minute later had a Wrangler tire for me to look at. He said the price was $448.00 out the door for set. He also said he was an hour behind but would get to me as soon as he could. I accepted.

In less than an hour my Jeep was pulled in to the service bay and my tires mounted and balanced. Th salesman took my charge card and thanked me for letting B&R be my tire company.

And yes, I went back to Sears later than day to show him a copy of my receipt for tires that were half the cost he wanted to gouge me with. He didn’t want to talk tires, or wheels, or even the weather with me. Imagine that.

William Shatner Vindicated

Posted by LOTGK on March 29, 2013

There Is Somebody Out On The Wing

There’s Someone On The Wing…
50 years ago this evening Bob Wilson, (Played by William Shatner) saved the life of the crew and passengers from a gremlin that was tinkering with the plane’s engine and wiring electronics. Wilson grabbed a gun from a sleeping policeman and opened the hatch door of the plane and fired at the gremlin scaring it off the wing.

However, his wife, the crew, the captain, and passengers all believed he was insane. (He had just been released from a sanitarium recovering from a nervous breakdown)

The Nightmare at 20,000 Feet from 1963 is now over as Bob Wilson, after booking a flight from Priceline dot com, seated just over the wing snapped a photo of a gremlin sitting out on the wing.

Finally, vindication.

Geneva-On-The-Lake Flag Etiquette

Posted by LOTGK on January 22, 2013

american-flag-etiquette

Improper Display Of The American Flag

The temperature dipped to 5 degree’s this brisk Winter morning. My daily jogging in the cemetery was at a fast pace for sure today. My thoughts this morning were of the inauguration of Obama and of course, warmer weather which led me to day-dream about Geneva-On-The-Lake.

I dug up this photo I took last Summer (2012) of the Wet And Wild water slide at Geneva. Notice the flag flying. Notice the blue star field is on the right top. Not to be a stickler of flag etiquette but come on man, the blue star field should always be top left whenever displaying the flag to the public. Vertical or horizontal.

The past several weeks our local veterinarian has been displaying his flag outside his office upside down. Flag etiquette states that flying the flag upside down is a signal of distress when there is immediate extreme danger to life or property. (I believe he is making a political statement using the American flag)

I wonder what would happen if a few military personnel carriers with a full complement surrounded the doctor’s office in response to the upside down flag to offer aid and assistance to Dr. Allen.

I wonder what the military charges for that type of service call?
