Monday morning May 4th.
Can you find the Photo with the Allegheny River?
Public transportation still running in the city.
Photographed Tuesday morning from the Duquesne Incline Platform. No one else was there
I’d seen the fog over city as I crossed Liberty Bridge. It had lifted when I arrived after my drive.
I’d gotten the call that my iPad was ready for pick up after being repaired. It’s been there for weeks. To get it or not was the question. I paid over the phone and only Shannon was there working as they Tastar Data Systems opened Tuesday morning at 9. I debated whether I should drive over to Library Road or not but decided to have the iPad at home in my possession again. Face timing family and friends.

Allegheny River and the Monongahela River meet at the Point to form the Ohio River.

The evening felt like summer, this last night of September. Steve and I had a great time thanks to my son sharing his season tickets with us. The city skyline so colorful and bright against the dark sky. It sure gets darker earlier and the game didn’t start until 8:15 so definitely Monday Night Football.
It was a good game for the Steelers as they were 0 and 3.
Tonight’s score Pittsburgh Steelers-27 Cincinnati Bengals-3
At halftime we saw the four inductees of the class of 2019 being inducted into the Pittsburgh Hall of Honor — Elbie Nickel (his son was there to represent his deceased father) , Larry Brown, Bill Cowher and Hines Ward. #86 got the loudest cheers.

It’s Spring Break at Grandma’s House for three of the grandkids.
I am fortunate to live in a city with so much to offer.
This is the view from Butler Street, towards the Highland Park Bridge. One of the 445 bridges of Pittsburgh.
You can’t see the Allegheny River due to the fog.
The metal view finder is reflecting the street lights.
Did you know the swiveling sightseeing view finder is actually called TOWER VIEWER – coin operated binoculars ?
