And they were correct. a car trip was about to begin.
The only thing is they were not going to be included on the drive from Ohio to Pittsburgh.
They saw the luggage.
They felt the excitement.
The kids were putting on shoes and coats and leaving the house. With suitcases and pillows and backpacks.
It was a trick to get them out of the car so we could be on our way today.
It’s been a lot of activity this weekend.
Charlie enjoyed seeing the Destination Moon exhibit at the Heinz History Center. His second visit.
We went home for lunch and later in the afternoon we went to Phipps Conservatory where he drove a cab in Cuba. He told us to not stand in front of the car while he’s driving.
Sunday it was dinosaurs at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History
And the sun came out today, shining on the Cathedral of Learning at Pitt
A learner’s permit to drive in Ohio can be issued at age 15 1/2!
HAPPY 15th BIRTHDAY TO ANNA

A new weekly challenge is due Wednesday so my final color collage of the series…..I know I missed pink and brown and turquoise…..colors to collect for future posts.
I’ve been taking my cars to Bastone Auto for 25 years. You want to go to an auto place you trust! Being located in a former church seems a nice touch.
Pennsylvania car inspection was due and the temporary registration I’d gotten online was about to expire Dec 2nd.
My goal’s to get a photo of the Bastone brothers in front of their place. I thought it would be a great addition to People at Work- Primarily Pittsburgh (show at Panza Gallery. July 2018)
As I was asking Bob about getting Jim and Frank to agree I said “here I’ll take a quick sample on the phone to remind you to ask them”
Bob is also an expert Amateur/Ham Radio operator (licensed call sign is WC3O) and here’s an article
If you need a speaker for your organization’s event, he’ll expound on all aspects of automotive service, repair and maintenance in his “I Hate Cars” tour. His flyer says “hear the straight scoop from an ASE certified Master Mechanic with a lifetime of experience in the automotive repair and maintenance field”
Bob has a great sense of humor, too.
Thanks for letting me take your photo, Bob.
Please ask your brothers to make a time and I’ll be over with my real camera.
Oh and my car is happy, too.
