9/22 Granville OH

Arrived in Columbus at 8 AM, after waking up at 3 in Milwaukee. Only had three hours sleep. Yawn.

Jan and Kris picked me up at the airport and I ran a thousand errands with them--including going to one of the coolest stores in the world, The Andersons. Row after row of Ohio State paraphernalia. Very creative stuff.

Met Jane, Pete, Jordan, and Sarah for lunch, then headed for the Granville Inn, about 30 minutes out of town. Granville is a lovely old town, almost like an antique itself. Most of our family is staying at the Inn. The rooms are all different and the beds are perfect. Plus free high speed internet access in each room. Quite an anachronism, but an appreciated one.

The wedding rehearsal was at 5, and it was funny--because of Craig. He's a funny guy.

Afterward we went to the rehearsal dinner--which was a huge pig roast. A lawyer Megan used to work with held it on his farm. We had a great time.

Unfortunately, because of not sleeping the night before, I was dead tired. Went back to the hotel early with Jane and gang. Everyone else stayed at the pig roast late, then went out in town. I'll find out tomorrow how much fun I missed.

Sounds like you're having a fun time, Jer! Tired, but a good kind of tired. :)

Thanks, Jeff. And now you can add "full" to the description. Seems all we're doing is eating.
