3500th Blog Post Today
Thank you readers and followers and fellow bloggers for hanging in there with me all these years.
I appreciate your looking at the photos (hopefully right side up), clicking the like button and writing comments when you can, even when it’s been a hassle.
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.
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.
Dear Blog Readers. I hope you can help me today. Computer/blog issues are frustrating as many of you know, but not something anyone really wants to spend time on. WordPress Happiness Engineers are trying to assist me. The problem is they can’t see what YOU see on your computer or device.
It has come to my attention that some of my photos on the blog posts are showing up sideways, reducing the enjoyment of viewing the photographs for sure. I’ve been blogging for 9 1/2 years and this issue has occurred recently it seems. Have any of you bloggers experienced this problem.
I take photos with a camera and or an iphone and blog from my computer or my phone. Not sure if the method I use to upload photos is the problem.
I am going to post a few photos and if you would be so good as to let me know if you see them correctly. Also what device are you viewing them on IF you see them sideways. Thank you.

Today is the ninth year anniversary of blogging. The start of year ten. Yikes!
Almost every day. Sometimes every 36 hours instead of 24. The times when there was no internet access, the hard drive crashed, the time I fried the computer with a glass of beer, traveling or feeling unwell. Many days I found a way, made a way to get a photo posted, somehow.
A friend gave me this Campbell Pottery (of Crawford County Pennsylvania) vase with a little brass frog to hold the flower stems. It’s a beautiful work of art. Thanks Debbie.

LINES. Cheri Lucas Rowlands challenged WordPress bloggers to find lines through their lens. Here is my gallery of lines. Jet trails and kite tails. Sculpture, railroad tracks, smokestacks and jello layers.

Steve and went down to the North Side Friday night. The Pirates game had started at 7:00 but we went to dinner at Atria’s watching the game against St. Louis Cardinals on the TV and then we walked around, did some serious people watching and checked the score on my phone. St, Louis won the game 4-3.
A couple of dedicated Pirates fans who let me take a photo of them sporting their Pirates Parrot Hats.
The Barges on the Allegheny River from where the fireworks were launched.
Still working on getting the best night shot of Bill Mazeroski statue.
WordPress has taken a week off from the Weekly Photo Challenge but fellow blogger Cee Neuner has created a Just A Fun Challenge- Hidden

if you’ve been following me since June 2010 you’ve seen my grandkids hiding under the Japanese Maple in their front yard.
Good to be alive at sixty-five.
Happy Medicare card to me. I can get that free bus pass now.
My sister and I are in Columbus OH on the big birthday eve after our family gatherings and driving over 1700 miles.
Laura and James hosting a July 4th birthday celebration for me tomorrow.
Here’s a photo collage with some of my favorite things- my family, pignoli, fireworks, coffee ice cream, raspberries, Zeke’s coffee, reading books, teapots, knitting and sock monkeys. Oh yes, a few shots of me throughout the years.
