Cousins in the Car’s Back Seat

A six word Saturday.  Maura is reflected in Charlie’s sunglasses.  They were making faces together.  BTW this is the old Batman hat that was a hand-me-down from Michael.  Finished the replacement hat today. See below.

 

Christmas 2011   Jack and Michael received superhero hats from Grandma   I think Michael wished I had bought him LEGO  One of my favorite photos. 

The new Batman hat completed today December 28th

 

S. Dallas Ave Thoughtful Neighbors’ Signage Warns of BIG Pothole

You can avoid it by seeing this eye catching sign. South Dallas Avenue Thoughtful Neighbors Warn of BIG Pothole. You could ruin a tire. Pittsburgh is noted for its potholes. You can’t always see them until you’re on top of one. Or your tire is dipping into it, jarring your ride, ruining your alignment!

Tugboats, Trains and a Tanker Truck

These past few days driving around the city I’ve seen a lot of freight trains. I pulled over to the curb in the Strip District by the junkyard to catch the Wheeling Lake Erie cars overhead. And while visiting at my friend’s house I love to watch the tugboats push the barges on the Ohio River. The tanker truck was in front of me on the RDFleming Bridge while at a red light. Lots of demolition on the hillside there, too. Right now, as I write this post just before bed, I can hear the train whistle repeat itself loudly in the night.

Doesn’t look too safe

My granddaughter Anna texted, “Doesn’t look too safe” with these three photos she took on Friday.

Seriously unsafe.

You might remember Anna’s guest blog of pick up full of mannequin legs     and another of a driver brushing his teeth.

I can see her taking the photo in the side mirror reflection.

Thanks for being the guest blogger today.

Cauliflower Chysanthemums

My friend, blog follower and frequent commenter, Sue R, told me she saw some Chrysanthemums that looked like Cauliflower.   I said, WHERE?

She couldn’t remember exactly but I know she sent me here somehow.  I found them.

There they were right on a front lawn.  I couldn’t believe it. Thanks Sue!
