Maura Texted a Night Pic

Granddaughter Maura (just turned ten) texted me a night photo of a Christmas house. For the blog!

Last night, after Steve and I grabbed a bite, we drove through a neighborhood in search of a few more photos to add to Maura’s.

It’s dark so early now as we approach that shortest day of light.

Here’s the house in Columbus Ohio that Maura sent.

Thanks for the good idea, Maura. What a lot of colorful decorations!

Below are a few Pittsburgh houses, mostly taken from the car except for the snowy animals. I had to get out.

Petey Goes to the PGH Marathon

Petey was walking on the sidewalk along the PGH Marathon route ( with Jacob).

I said what everyone probably always says to Jacob- “Oh my goodness! “Little Rascals Dog!” (filmed in the 1930’s as it turns out, YIKES)

Jacob graciously allowed me to photograph Petey AND told me how he found Petey in an animal shelter.  Petey has a Mickey Mouse Mark on the top of his head and Jacob used to have a dog named Mickey.

A forever home for Petey is a very happy story.  Lucky dog.
