Do You Have a Sentimental Toy from Childhood?

Laura asked me if I could find Ned.  That wasn’t his name when he was purchased in 1987.

She received this Cabbage Patch Premie for her fourth birthday.

I dug around in a closet and found him, a little soiled on his feet and hands.  I washed him and then his little outfit.

When I was soaking the doll hands in the suds, it looked as if he was washing his own clothes and diaper.

I’ll take him out to Laura when I visit.

Midas Light on Pittsburgh’s Casino

I’ve never been inside. So much controversy about this place when it was to be built. I remember that.

Not into gambling. It would pain me to lose money I’d worked for. But when I was up on Mount Washington I saw this light on the casino, surrounded by a total gray scene and it struck me as worth capturing.
