The field of cars is something to see. Piles of crunched up vehicles, stacks and stacks.
The categories are evident. On the link above, I read they have computerized inventory and ten salesmen to help you find the car part you are looking for.
We pulled over and I had to get out of the car. Photographing through the bonus chainlink fence- perfect for the Weekly Photo Challenge of GRID.
A photograph can’t really capture the massive sea of broken cars and trucks.
Grid gallery. From the archives. Once you start looking, it’s surprising to see how many grids present themselves. Seems I lean to shooting through chain link fencing.

Farm Breakfast is five bucks.
Kids eat free on Wednesday with an adult eating. Good deal!
(Michael’s book is either the American Revolution or the Civil War.) Feeling connected to family in Ohio tonight.
Old Grandma got almost everyone to cooperate for a quick pic as they sat down.
Missing a few family members but because of retirement, I can be with family on a Wednesday night, right in the middle of the week!
response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Connected.”
And I did the exact same thing tonight!
I found this sheet of stamps. (a birthday gift from a friend a couple years ago) in my desk and thought it was perfect for framing in a plastic box frame. 39 cent stamps. The children’s literature characters caught my eye.
One sheet my dad framed. These stamps came out in the early 70’s. The love stamps are 8 cents.
After Robert Indiana’s LOVE sculpture and prints.http://m.mentalfloss.com/article.php?id=25276
And here’s another sheet of stamps my father framed. When the stamps were 13 cents.
I stitched the needlepoint pillow kit of the butterfly stamps and gave it to my Aunt Rhea and then she passed it back to me. Connections
Artists Susan Middleman and Joan Brindle. Classmates reunited at Susan’s Opening Reception Friday night.
Class of 1965- they met as freshmen at Carnegie Tech
(now Carnegie Mellon University) Pittsburgh PA
Joan and I were art teachers in the Pittsburgh Public Schools and then Joan was my Art Supervisor. We became friends. That’s how I got invited to her friend Susan’s Art Opening Reception at Gallerie Chiz. The large oil paintings on paper are Susan’s art work.
I met the artist Susan Middleman through Joan.
Hosted by Gallerie Chiz owner/director Ellen Chisdes Neuberg who provided the space for connections. I knew she was the gallery owner as she came to introduce herself. I was inquiring if her plate held a sweet or a savory.
I thought it might be a chocolate or a meatball but it was a baby bella mushroom.
Ellen sported a cool purple outfit, unique art jewelry and turquoise glasses. Plus she wasn’t carrying a purse. Ellen and one other person would have been selected “best dressed” if I were from the paper.
Glass and found objects artist Elizabeth Fortunato showed her work at the art opening reception this evening, too. The show is open through October 10th.
The title is Waiting for the Rain to Stop
The white embroidered dress is from Hey Betty! Vintage Clothing down the street (5890 Ellsworth Avenue)
It was my daughter Laura’s idea. She called on Face Time and asked me what I was doing. I showed her the little stack of different size pumpkins hats I knit this past week.
“Make a pumpkin patch with all the knitted pumpkin hats.” she said. “Stuff them with something to make them stand up.” Good idea, Laura.
(I used a couple of large balls of yarn and some dishtowels.)
I was thinking about photographing outside in the grass but it is totally unfall-like with 85% humidity.
The morning sun was streaming in through the lace curtains onto the living room floor.
Not from every angle but the difference in lighting is remarkable.
My first full week of retirement, no back to school. It’s a transition. And we’re moving from summer to fall, even though the heat is intense. Another transition. I bought a snow shovel this week.
There’s still one hat on the needles. I’m knitting the last hat for my granddaughter Maura, who’s going to be 7 in November but said she’d wear one. I already gave one away a few days ago.
My other neighbor, J said the first pumpkin hat I posted looked like a tomato! I think these photos show the color of yarn as orange for sure. Two hats and the one for Maura are Superwash Merino wool and the others are Premier Yarns Deborah Norville Soft Non-Pilling Acrylic. Hopefully easy wash and dry for the moms.
The pattern was from Ravelry by Tara Thomsen in case you want to make some. Newborn to adult sizes. That’s enough for me this season.
