Hambone’s Saturday Night-Lawrenceville neighborhood on Butler Street.
Steve said, come on let’s go -so I put my book down and layered up in warm clothes and we headed down. Ordered a draft. Settled into a booth and listened to some great musicians take the chill off the almost winter night.

Vince Camut on pedal steel
Mark Perna on Bass

Meet Dino Pandolfo who graciously consented to be part of my People at Work Series. He has a full recording studio and can create multiple copies of DVDs and CDs(see below) right here in Ingram a West End neighborhood in Pittsburgh.
The Quart Jar Poet: Dorothy Holley is a film I made in 2005. Dorothy was a good friend to me- an encourager. Dorothy Holley-Poet, Friend
Dino created the copies to be used as a fundraiser for Madwomen in the Attic-he was a pleasure to work with and they look wonderful. He even carted the boxes to my car.

Wood Fired Pizza below.
He was abandoned last week. Now he’s sitting up in a doggie stroller with a squeaky toy and LOTS of attention from his new owners. One lucky dog!
He was watching the Etna Memorial Day Parade on Monday. I included some parade highlights so you can see what George saw.
And here is George with his favorite squeaky toy. He is very happy dog.
Nothing like a marching band to get the parade going! Anchors Aweigh they played.
Some of the Veterans
Firefighters from surrounding communities
I am created a Flickr album of the Etna Memorial Parade if you want to see if you are in one of the images. https://www.flickr.com/gp/ruth_e/6z3yA8
Joe DeFazio is featured today in the People at Work Series- Primarily Pittsburgh
From upstairs, I could hear him playing the piano after it was tuned and it sounded wonderful. (after years of neglect) He’s an excellent musician.
It was my first time seeing a piano tilted to be worked on. I asked if he would be part of my People at Work Series and he graciously agreed.
These photos are not in chronological order.
