Do Not Rock Cars!

Atop the Ferris Wheel.  The sign said Do Not  Rock  Cars.  

No kidding,  but Jack (6) my grandson would have loved to rock the car when we were stopped at the top!

Mr. George Washington Gale Ferris although born in Illinois  founded a company to test metals for railroads and bridges- G.W. G. Ferris in  Pittsburgh PA.  Mr Ferris lived on the North Side and died in Mercy Hospital Pittsburgh of typhoid fever.

About to Pop and Professional Wrestling on Grant Avenue

You might remember the post where I wrote how I knew I should ALWAYS carry my camera with me. ALWAYS

Friday night Steve asked if I wanted to grab a bite to eat.   It was a long day at school.  Sure.

We drove down to Park Brugges and the line was out the door.  Plan B.  We drove to BRGR and at least a 1/2 hour wait.  Spoon, no reservation? A table might open up at nine.  Okay.

Plan C.  Let’s drive to Millvale and eat at Grant Avenue Bar.

We got to the front of the place and it was Millvale Days!  Who knew? There was a wrestling ring and ropes and a referee and oh my goodness a Ferris Wheel and games and booths and bands and people. People all over the place. Snack stands and cotton candy trailers and NO camera. Well the phone.

We walked around and of course, I’d left my camera in my school bag. At home.  Oh no.

These were shot with an iPhone with about 13% battery left.
