We’re Really Going to Appreciate the Arrival of Spring This Year

Here is Long Tail the feral cat in the garage.  You may know the story about Ann next door who was in her nineties and passed and we caught two of the four young cats she’d collected and had them neutered and vaccinated and released.  How they survive the sub zero temps is astounding. Steve feeds them and made a shelter.

Moonlight Commute

Headed to the garage, time for school.

I make tentative choices- try to place my feet

When I unlock the car,  the rear lights show where it’s rough on the

temporary ice rink.

makes frozen glass on top of gravel and mud.    I saw the moon.

Down the slick hill to the main road,

I pulled over, waited for cloud cover to move

A couple of grainy cell phone pics,  try to capture the moon, the mood-

then off to work.

4 Fireplaces at the Red Light on Fifth Ave and Kirkpatrick Street

Taken with the iPhone. Through my dirty windshield.  I was at the end of Birmingham Bridge ready to go up the hill onto Kirkpatrick Street to Centre.

Not ideal conditions but there were those four fireplace openings staring at me as I sat and watched the cars come down Kirkpatrick Street.

Different from my daily route, it was my old route from last year’s school but I’d gotten my hair cut on Carson Street and was headed home.

You might remember Jurassic Pittsburgh from April 2012 if you ‘ve been following for awhile. I took that shot of the dinosaur-like demolition machine on the way to my former school.  Added it here at the end cause who has time to back and look.  But this is the result of the demolition.
