Fredosaurus Rex on the South Side

Look what I found because I turned right instead of left on 21st Street. Looking for the Brew House Association to drop off a photograph for the Pittsburgh Society of Artists show opening Friday July 6. It’s going to be a weekend of art openings for me.

It’s Fredosaurus Rex.

He used to be in front of WQED on Fifth Avenue. I didn’t get out of the car but I read there was a trolley on his tail.

In 2003 dinosaur sculptures were installed all around the city of Pittsburgh for Dinomite Days “Dinosaurs on Parade” sponsored by the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.

Road Closed

Wednesday evening, I came out of the restaurant to this scene.

Liberty Avenue and 36th Street. All surrounding roads were closed due to night paving.

Had to walk a few blocks to Penn Avenue so Steve could pick me up.

Dandelions are good for the Bees

Dandelions are good for the bees. My friend heard it in the radio- leave the dandelions in your lawn! Saw these two lawns next door to one another at a duplex in Bloomfield. The Weekly Photo Challenge created by Krista Stevens is prolific.
