Amid, Amidst, AmongWriting Tips Blog describes the difference of these three words.

You decide if I made the right choice- amid.  Amidst is outdated but I chose that first.  Then I wondered if I chose correctly.

The more I thought about the choice, the more confused I became.  But we are among friends.

“There he is. Is he going to throw that stick, or what?  I’ll fetch it.”

Photographer Christopher Boffoli has the best use of the miniatures I’ve seen.  He’s created a  book Big Appetites.

Creative and humorous, his work cheers me.  Makes me laugh.

 

Steelers Train at S. W. Randall Toys Downtown Pittsburgh

Big game Saturday afternoon against the Ravens. Go Steelers!  This Steelers train goes around and around in the toy store window.  Waited until it came around to catch the engine.  Everyone is psyched to watch on Saturday and it’s Black and Gold Day in the city on Friday.   Matthew and Mary will be at Ship of Fools Sports Bar in NYC watching, before he heads back to Croatia.  Check out S.W. Randalls in Shadyside,  for quality toys. Mark, Matthew and Laura used to browse and shop there after school when we lived on Howe Street in ’89-’91.  Two floors of every LEGO. Playmobil and doll you can envision!

Playoff game 4:30 Saturday. GO STEELERS.
