Along the Spree River, in a building covered in vines, you can find Guitar Doc. Here’s Anthony working on his 100th guitar. His father being a handyman was always working with his hands so when Anthony was small, he’d look over his shoulder and watch and learn.
There’s a Vintage Guitar Lounge where you can take an instrument from the wall display and test it as you sit and play. Listen to the tone, feel the heft of the polished wood, strum and pick the strings.
A good day for an addition to the People at Work series.

My six word Saturday. Purdue University Choir Sang National Anthem
My grandson Michael and his teammates got the opportunity to play on the professional basketball court on Friday afternoon. We took a bus from Columbus Ohio to Indianapolis Indiana and the Indiana Pacers and Bankers Life Fieldhouse staff were most welcoming. Since I don’t have permission to post the Middle and High Schoolers photos online, I am showing the Purdue University Choir singing of the National Anthem before tip-off of the Pro game we watched Friday evening. The Pacers played the Pelicans. (click the bold for game recap) Marquette grad Wesley Matthews scored 15 of his 24 points in the third quarter. Very exciting to watch him tie it up and then go ahead after the Pacers lagged behind for the entire first half of the game. Pacers won 126-111.
We got back to Michael’s school about 12:50 AM and it’s almost 2 AM now so I will sign off.
This evening Steve and I went to the Holiday Dinner and the lights display Let it Glow at the Phipps Conservatory in Schenley Park. The food was good and there were flickering candles in glass lanterns lighting the curvy paths throughout the Conservatory. The winter lights in the darkness were festive and fun to see.
A gallery from Thursday evening’s Halloween Parade in the Bloomfield neighborhood, Pittsburgh PA. One officer said they expected a crowd of ten thousand lining the parade route down Liberty Avenue. It was chilly. The little ones dressed up in costumes, so cute, thrilled to catch candy and treats thrown from the convertibles and others walking. I saw lots of unicorns! All sizes.
