This is my first visit to Cleveland and I’m loving my return to the Midwest. I was raised in Wisconsin — I spent my teen years living on Catfish Lake in the little vacation town of Eagle River, about six hours due north of Chicago.

Even though I’ve been in Arizona since my college days, Phoenix summers have never much agreed with me. Once the temperatures soar toward 100, I miss the lake, the green, and the cool breeze as the sun begins to set late in the evening.

We have a free day, today – no politics. Instead, we’re grabbing a picnic lunch and taking a road trip along the shores of Lake Erie. Destination? Marblehead Lighthouse , the longest operating lighthouse on the Great Lakes and a shining beacon since 1822.

Hoping to take in some cool breezes, lake mist, and Midwest summer green.


  1. I’m glad you are enjoying my birth state. I left Ohio when I was 18 and since 1967 I have absolutely loved Arizona, especially the hot summers!!

  2. Enjoy the day! Wish we could join you. It’s going to be a cool 95 or so in Payson today!
