Dennis and Kathy Miller left Fulda on August 9th for a vacation that afforded them the opportunity to watch their grandson, Andrew, play nine games of baseball at Cooperstown Dreams Park, Cooperstown, New York.

Andrew’s team, the Minnesota Muskies was comprised of 11 boys, age 12, from Prior Lake, Woodbury and Shoreview, MN. Dennis and Kathy left a week before the team was scheduled to play so that they could visit friends along the way.



The road trip

“We must have picked a good time to go, because even Interstate 80 through Chicago was not that busy,” Dennis commented.

“We went to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and took the ferry to Muskegeon, Michigan. We visited the Gerald Ford Museum in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We noticed the way Proverbs 3:5 and 6 was notated in many places throughout the museum. It was one of President Ford’s favorite verses. We drove into Canada to Niagra Falls,” Kathy shared.

The couple toured the Canadian side of Niagra Falls, enjoying a ride aboard the Maid of the Mist. They also boarded another boat ride that took them behind Niagra Falls.

Their next stop was to visit Kathy’s high school friend, Mary Ann Rolland. “We hadn’t seen each other for many years and it was really good to be able to visit in person,” Kathy said.

In Youngstown, New York, they visited Char and Fritz Stucki. “That was a lot of fun, too. They live in a school house that was built in 1930. They added on and made it into their home. It was very interesting,” Kathy commented.

Then in Freeville, New York, they had made plans to visit Dennis’ college roommate and good friends, Charlie Cuykendall, and his wife, Shirley. Dennis and Charlie met when they were attending the University of Minnesota, St. Paul campus. “He met us at the end of the drive-way dressed as a circusmaster,” Dennis said, chuckling. That’s just him. He is a lot of fun. They have animated, stuffed animals as their pets. For instance, when Kathy went to shower the next morning, there was a snake in the shower - not a real one, just one put there by Charlie!” A photo of covers pulled back on the bed reveals the jokester side of Charlie...pulling covers back, Kathy discovered a fake, human hand waving at her.

“It was good to be able to visit with friends on our way to Cooperstown. We enjoyed it so much,” Kathy stated.
