Thanks for all the comments. I appreciate your responses. It seems an issue I have trouble fixing. Now the WordPress Bloggers have to sign in? Oh my. It should not be a pain to leave a thought or good word.
Throwback Thursday. One of my favorite family photographs. Mark reading while Erika’s holding baby Jack and Anna and Michael. Before Maura was born. We were on a road trip in May 2007, staying at our friend Joanne’s home in Omaha, Nebraska. 782 miles from Columbus to Omaha in the minivan, that’s one way. I sat in the back with the kids and was the Granny Nanny while Mark (and sometimes Erika) attended meetings at a convention. The word of the week this would illustrate might be Exhaustion. Oh, that’s right, they don’t have the word of the week anymore. 🙁
A test request: Can you leave a word or two in the comment section today so I can see how EASY- Difficult or IMPOSSIBLE it is to leave a comment if you are not a WordPress Blogger. I have heard from at least two regular commenters that it is not easy to do so.
Nobody has time to experience a hassle.
Look at this soft snuggly bunny rabbit who helped feature the vibrant “Dye Happy” colorway. A table display was overflowing with beautiful and colorful soft yarn. Steve and I popped over the river for a few minutes to see the trunk show, held at LYS McWalker Yarns in Millvale PA, Sunday afternoon. I needed some double pointed knitting needles, too for a new project.
Meet Squirrel, held by Marissa of The Spun Bunny.
I should have taken a video of his little nose twitching. So fluffy and Marissa said the scale tips between 4 and 5 pounds so the fur is light, even if it is long.
You have to see and touch the squishy and brilliantly colored yarn to see what Squirrel and his family can produce. (with a little help from spinner and owner Marissa of course) I asked how many rabbits and Marissa responded “12 2 are full english angoras (ember and cinnabun) and the rest are french x english.”
Can you find his pretty eyes?
And I lifted one of McWalker Yarns photos from Facebook Timeline (thanks Amy) so you can see the gorgeous yarn Didn’t think to photograph the yarn, as I was mesmerized by Squirrel and all his cuteness.

Jimmy with Franco Harris on August 17, 2017 Little Italy Days in Bloomfield neighborhood of Pittsburgh PA. I photographed them after Franco played in a Bocce game on Cedarville Street.

A six word Saturday.
I’ve not seen one of these before but they make a lot of sense.
This one in front of the police station.
I got excited when I saw this combination on an adjacent street the other day. Drove around the block to capture this image. Toilets in unexpected places can be a surprise.
This is in color but it looks black and white.
