The Brothers Reed drove from Oregon to Pittsburgh with stops along the way.
Tomorrow it’s Atlantic City, New Jersey and Sunday they are playing in New York City. A musical tour. They contact me last November about playing in Pittsburgh and I said let me see if I can find someone to host. You know when no one else said yes, I called them back and said Come on to Pittsburgh. They found me through a blog post about the house concert with Christopher Mark Jones
Oh, are they good.
When they were warming up in my living room,I was sitting in the dining room and the first sweet chords and clear harmonies brought a lump in my throat, I was so moved by their song.
The audience clapped heartily and were enthusiastic for their music.
The fragrance of basil fills the foyer, thanks to Jill. Love the Italian baking pot!
And thanks to Roberta for the homemade goodies and Joan for her bread. Other friends and neighbors brought some wine. Nice.
No matter if decades pass since you’ve seen one another.
You shared something special and exciting a long time ago.
When you remember, they’re younger and laughing and you’re younger and laughing, too. Life was good.
All those years I didn’t mail Christmas cards.
Wish I’d kept in better touch. You hear the sad news.
These tulips are for Mary Therese who passed May 12th.
There’s a celebration of her life at Our Lady of the Pines in Black Forest, Colorado Friday morning, but I’m in Pittsburgh.
I want to tell her beloved husband, Joe, I’m sorry, I remember and I will keep them both in my heart.
Hers is a life to celebrate!

While the men loaded up the chairs, Suzanne gave me a tour of her garden and shared some chives. She said you can eat the blossom!
After we pulled away from our friends’ house,(where we’d gone to borrow folding chairs) Steve and I needed something to eat.
We drove down the hill to the Bryant Street Market, and found homemade Pierogies in a ziploc bag in their freezer.
I sautéed plenty of sliced Vidalia onions in butter, too.
Added the snipped fresh chives garnish which complemented the potato and cheese filled pierogies.
Thanks for sending this wonderful Wordless Wednesday photograph, Shannon.
Do you ever go back and examine a series of photos you took, at least a decade ago? Maybe your camera was low-end or you didn’t have a perfect lens. The weather was gray.
When I look at New York Spring, I see my sister’s guidance and spotting cool things for me to photograph- help capture signage and scenes in her neighborhood, before they disappear. Signs. Lots of signs.
I try to keep the blog in Real Time but this is looking back and no, I’m not in NYC tonight.
How quickly their faces change.
The Weekly Photo Challenge is FACE, I have a lot to draw upon from my archives.
Michael called to me from upstairs.
I started walking up. Oh.
This is what I saw. Yikes!
How did he get his head between the spindles?
He got me.
Good one, Michael.
