Each thursday, I gather with a small group of friends to play games and enjoy other activities after work. Today, we played Disc golf (golf with special Frisbees) before playing a few board games.

GROB in Bluffton, OH

At GROB, we design and  manufacture machines that make engines for cars and trucks. Flat Stanley saw how I used several different tools including my computer, calculator and pencil and paper while I worked on designing a new piece of equipment.

On our way home from work, we decided to stop and put some gas in the car. Stanley does not often have to stop for gas, so he enjoyed seeing how the gas pump worked.

Tomorrow, Flat Stanley and I will travel Northeast to Tiffin, OH to meet up with some friends after work.
