Thursday 1998 - Bob and Bev Gooding came about 10:30 am, we had a peanut butter sandwich before leaving for Pike Lake. Serena had left previously. We walked the lake trail, .4 of a mile, then the wildcat trail, 1.2 miles some steep places, but very nice. Drove into Waverly where we had planned to have supper at the Emmitt House, built in 1861. [Now listed as permanently closed.] Nice P.L. across the street. Dinner didn't start until 5, so we had supper across the street. We would go there again. Bob spoke of a restaurant in Covington, OH, "Buffalo Jacks." Bev had fried ice cream.
