Columbus, Ohio

Are there any other wids here in the Columbus area?  Maybe we can set up a dinner somewhere, like Carfagna's kitchen on Polaris?  Or somewhere at Easton?  I am in the northwest portion of Columbus, which has all of the traffic construction happening (I know, lucky me :o).  I am just throwing a suggestion out there.

Hi Rooshy,

I'm in CLE but I would love to do a day trip to C-Bus.  I'm not sure before the end of the year will work though. 

I have a couple of widow friends up here that may want to join if that's ok?

Hi Sdarah1130,

   That would be great to meet you and other Cleveland widows!  Just let me know what you want to do.

Let know too please, I'm just down the road.

Good thing you can drink at Carfagna's.   ;D

Hello,

I should be moving to the area in late January to take a job as the librarian in London, OH correctional institution. I would like to meet others in the same boat I find myself. Grew up in Ohio and went to Wilmington College, but lived in Michigan for 30 years.  Need suggestions about a good place to live either in London or western suburbs of Columbus.

Hillard is nice along with Dublin. If you want to live out a bit Plain City has some very nice spots. London is definitely country living if that is your thing.

I guess the real question for you and your family would be how close to you want to be to big city shopping, health care, etc. ? The answer, of course, will impact what areas would be the best matches.

Good luck - Mike

Thank you Mike.

I may have grown up in Highland county (that is where most of my family lives) but I have lived in big cities since grad school or a larger town than London so I would prefer the suburbs. I have learned to eat lots of Asian foods in the last year and like other ethnic foods also. I use to drive 20 miles one way to work so that would not be a problem.

I am alone now. I am even leaving my 13 year old cat with a friend since he has been under some stress and would not move well. I had to have back surgery in May and since Biggie was 19lbs. he was over my lifting wight limit. With a layoff and moving in with Minh right before his hospitalization, I have not had Biggie since May. 

Hope the holidays were not too rough for you.

Hello,

An update. I am living in Galloway, OH now. I will be starting my job next Tuesday, but have to fly out to San Fransisco for Minh's memorial service.

I don't know about you, it seems to take longer to unpack the older you get.

Ooh, this is exciting!  When can we all meet?Best time for me would be a Saturday.  The best part is that a lot of the construction in the 270/315 area is done!  And the Ikea traffic on Polaris is not bad, either  :P

Hello,

Sorry this is so late a reply. After my trip out to Berkeley and the start of my new job, I have not been on here until now. I know where Sawmill Rd. is located. Right now I am working  M-F for the next few weeks and then my normal schedule Sunday - Thursday.

I will try to check back this weekend to see if you have also. I would like to meet others in the Columbus area that find themselves in this unwanted club.
