Mt. Rainier and the Cascades Guest Blog

Taken from the window by Sue Reinfeld as she was landing in Seattle. You’ve read my friend Sue’s comments on the blog. Recently we were photographing goats together along the Monongahela. Thanks for the beautiful view, Sue.

Mt. Rainier and the Cascades

Last year I received a photo of Mt Rainier above the clouds from 8 year old Ellie and she was guest blogger in July.

First Time Using a Cherry Pitter

James brought home a slice of cheesecake for each of us. He’d gone to Weiland’s Market. My flavor was plain New York Cheesecake. I saw the fresh cherries on the counter and thought they would make a nice addition to the dessert. Laura said “use the Cherry pitter”. It was out on the cutting board. How do I do it? “Like a stapler” she said. So easy. So fun. The juicy fresh fruit was a wonderful contrast to the rich cheesecake.

I ate half. Saved some for tomorrow.

Popular Building

There are always people stopping at the corner of Grove and Bedford Streets to photograph this building which appears in the opening credits of the tv show F•r•i•e•n•d•s.

I posted it five years ago with Anna and Erika in front when they visited NYC

Balloons on Hudson Street

Happy Passover. Eappy Easter
from Big Head Balloons

On the way to the parking garage as I was leaving town, luggage in hand….I had to stop and take a photo.

There is a Balloon Banksy at work (although the article says he’s retired) Joel Klein has been in the ballon biz for more than 40 years and runs Big Head Balloons and you can see his creations on Instagram bigheadballoons.

Parked by the School

Another sign of Spring. A Mister Softee Truck

“Mister Softee was founded by William Conway and James Conway in 1956 in Philadelphia and is one of the largest franchisers of soft ice cream in the United States”

School was about to let out but we were long gone
