Driving to the West End for the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast Saturday morning, I saw the City-County Building (architect named Henry Hornbostel) tree being put into place. A large flatbed truck now empty and a forestry truck with a cherry-picker bucket and a huge gold crane-like machine were all at the curb. I parked and got out of the car to photograph the scene. My friend R remarked that the pumpkins are still out! You can see the head of the Richard S Caliguiri Monument. Second image below of monument.
At school I have a nice neighbor. It makes a difference when someone is glad to see you and says hello. Cares about how you are… I get to school and the room is undone cause the music teacher moved all the tables(we share the room) and my neighbor, Ms. P, comes over and pitches in, lends a hand to get it set up in two minutes flat! WOW! And today Ms. P had a sub for later in the day when she went to a training/ her sub, Ms. H offered to clean the turtle’s aquarium, just needed an apron and some gloves. So Spot was out of his home for a time and I went and got the camera. At first he was shy and seemed uninterested in my attention and then he started to open his mouth in a threatening/welcoming(?) gesture. Spot lives across the hall in the First Grade Classroom- 214. He is a shared pet. A Duquesne U professor has him part of the time. Spot is an interesting creature and looks like a remnant from prehistoric times..
Out at the Pittsburgh airport there’s a display case with Mr. Rogers’ sweater and a pair of his sneakers, a photo of him, puppets and some memorabilia from Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood. A Pittsburgh Icon.
Butternut squash and leek risotto for the main course. Ordered the house salad first and excellent dressing arrived in the cruet. Delicious and not too crusty bread. We didn’t have a reservation but you can call Piccolo-Forno . We were lucky we got a table right away. No wait. It was bustling. Only drawback the surfaces reflect the din so it’s a bit loud. Food and service very good. To read a review click here.
Can someone explain the building the jail (the four red brick structures) on the Monongahela River Front?
Last day of pumpkin season. The Pig Race at Leed’s Farm Ostrander, Ohio. Each pig represented a college football team in the Big Ten. Well, there are now 12 teams in the Big Ten and already a Big Twelve – so 6 pigs..ran three at a time and then a final race between the two winners. The pigs were rewarded with a treat at the end of the race and didn’t seem to mind.
