Lafayette also has their own little brew pub. I had this saved out for Susan because they have Bangers and Mash on their menu

Bangers and Mash?
Bye, Elizabeth!

SHEEEEEESH! That's what I get for taking so long to get back -- where has this $$*$*$&*$* day GONE?

Well, having skimmed the day's activities -- and I DO mean "skimmed" -- I see you've been up to lots. Don't know who that person was back there, but it wasn't me...

So, what's up now?

Bangers = sausages: Mash = Mashed potatoes

I'm just going to finish up with our tour here. We are off to see Purdue University next

First we have to cross the Wabash River.

Looks like the rowing team!

Oh yes and the Dragon boat races

post #6398 of 9418
OOOOO WOW! neat dragon boat!

Here's an aerial view of some of the Purdue campus

In the middle is the fountain (well one of them). Here's a better picture of it.

In the distance is the bell tower - here's a better shot of it:

What a grand university!

Susie was called away unexpectedly on Saturday so I'm sure she will at least have some time to share Cleveland with us in the evenings. I don't know that for certain though because she's been gone.

Here's the Loeb Fountain on campus.

Hi Danielle! We've missed you too!
Sorry to hear we'll miss going to Roanoke, Va.! I can only think of just putting the Vacation thread on hold until the next host on March 3?

Here's the Hall of Music where any big name performances are held.

I took a picture of our kits on stage, but it was underexposed. I will try to work on getting it out to you next weekend
post #6407 of 9418
Wow, Purdue is beautiful.
post #6408 of 9418
Hi, Tina!

Those teeny pics don't do the Hall of Music justice. Here's the website


If you click on Venues and Hall of Music and then photos in the upper right in that screen you can enlarge them.

Casual local band concerts are held on Slayter Hill.

It can get a little crowded

post #6410 of 9418
Lovely campus, Chris!

Dan! Good to see you. We've missed you, too -- but we do understand.

As for the next couple of days, it strikes me that Susie might have time to show us Cleveland during the day time -- though she may need to be available for her sister-in-law evenings. And if Susie's tied up, we've been known to wander off and amuse ourselves before this -- perhaps take a road trip to our next destination, stopping whenever the mood strikes? Unless the itinerary has changed our next (expected) destination is New York City. What would people think of getting on the CatBus and meandering through Ohio and Pennsylvania? I don't think we have anyone hosting in Pennsylvania, do we? But that needn't stop us from visiting...? Just a thought.

When do we get to see the football stadium?
post #6412 of 9418
This old lady is on Eastern Standard Time and needs to start getting ready for bed. I'm going to leave you with a picture of Lafayette as it really is this time of year. Bundle up everyone because we are going ice skating!!!

Have fun and the bus knows the way back the the bed and breakfast! It's been my pleasure to share with you! Everyone have a good week!

post #6413 of 9418
Goodnight Chris
post #6414 of 9418
Thanks for hosting, Chris! Sleep tight!
post #6415 of 9418
Sorry Tina -


Ross-Ade stadium is the football stadium and Mackey Arena is where the basketball games are held
post #6416 of 9418
See ya later everyone. Gotta go feed my monsters -- the three four-legged ones and the two-legged one -- and then out for a couple of hours. I'll drop in when we get home and see who's around.
post #6417 of 9418
Thanks Chris, I love college football.

Home of the Purdue Boilermaker!
