I greatly enjoyed my day in Lancaster just doing whatever. One of the high lights was visiting with Ira Wagler after his day of work. He came to where I am staying and so sweet Katie Beiler was in on the visiting too. As a gift Ira gave her his book, autographed especially for her.
I always look forward to seeing Ira, which leads back to Ira & I both living at Aylmer Ontario in the past. We never lived there during the same time, for his parents moved to Bloomfield IA in the fall of 1976 and I moved to Aylmer in the spring of 1977. But even so I saw him occasionally and learned to know his parents quite well. Then our lives parted for years until I found his blog on the Internet and in June of 2011 was the first time we met in person at his book signing at Berlin Ohio.
