Just after arriving from Sleepy Hollow, NY, my cousin Lori, husband Fredi, her college freshman roommate Patricia( who lives here in Pittsburgh), & my friend Steve met at Ritter’s. Can’t remember the last time I ‘d been in there. They’re on their way to Cincinnati to see friends. May 19th Lori will be Honorary Bat Girl for the Yankees and throw out the first pitch!(click link) She won the contest. Tonight she photographed her Peanut Butter pancakes but I forgot to photograph the food. I had two eggs over, wheat toast with butter on the side. Scroll down for gallery.

Somedays it’s fun to play. The era is supposed to be c.1936. My mother pinned clothes on a merry-go-round contraption with a center metal pole, stuck in a concrete surrounded hole. The needs-to-be-oiled sounds of a pulley as the clothesline is reeled out with colors, shapes and flags. Whipping around in the breeze, drying in the sun. The smell of a pillowcase on a clean bedsheet that earlier flapped on the line. I bought these at the Hobby Shop. Read about HO scale .
Googled to see if I could get information about the blind marathon runner and his guide. I was photographing Laura’s friends @Mile 20, saw the shark run by, anything distinctive, colorful or interesting, runners getting the crowd going. How about this to make you wonder, what is your excuse for not being out there running? Cpt. Ivan Castro and his guide Lt. Col. Fred Dummar up from Fort Bragg, NC received hearty cheers as they rounded Bryant Street corner. Nice article in Post-Gazette about the two Iraq war veterans.
