Fortunately it’s a timed challenge practice drill and not a real rescue situation on the Ohio River yesterday. These men and women do important and difficult work.
I’d taken two grandkids to the Carnegie Science Center and we had just toured the submarine docked behind the Center.
Watching the diver dive into the river while tethered to the rope as it unfurled, was something to see. Another diver waited on deck, ready to help if diver one got into trouble.
You have to be a paramedic first before any further training can begin. The instructor was patient and answered all Jack’s questions.

“USS Requin, a Tench-class submarine, was the only ship of the United States Navy to be named after the requin, French for shark. Since 1990 it has been a museum ship at The Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania”. Wikipedia

Night time view at Aunt Linda and Uncle Frank’s. You can see two of Uncle Frank’s vintage cars he’s restored.
When we pulled up to the stop sign, we saw Kennywood Fireworks at seemingly eye level because their street is up so high.

Bedford and Grove Streets corner. Greenwich Village. New York City. You see tour groups checking it out, snapping photos. So that’s exactly what we did when we were visiting my sister in NYC Thanksgiving 2015.

We ate a boiled peanut. Soft and spicy. I can’t say I’d try another.
So many people have a peanut allergy but, I found a recipe for how to boil peanuts
