Winston Salem's answer to Charlotte's tower which now has competition from other buildings making it less obvious. Then a little ways up the road...
I promise I won't post this again even tho I'll probably travel this route often. I'll still giggle tho.

I'm finding it more and more difficult to find what I want on YouTube. Their search engine needs radical surgery or a total replacement. The results often make no sense at all. I have no trouble with "popular" music but major difficulties with classical.

Wow! 10,000 plus

In late July 2008 I accidentally deleted my blog Mom Said Nobody Cares. Tonight at 8:30 while I was at rehearsal, this new blog received the 10,000th visitor. It was a PC on Time Warner in Erie. I suspect who it might have been. Thank you, all, anyhow. I'm very flattered that you find this drivel interesting enough to visit. The saga of Little One will probably continue as long as he keeps giving me a reason to take another photo.

Meanwhile, I'll be away for a few days and may or may not get to blog. Take care of yourselves. Play fair. And give your four legged friends lots of treats. Feed the birds too, please.

A day with Sarah and Mom

Yes, it is the Kaufmann's clock in Pittsburgh, now Macy's. Today I drove a friend Sarah to Pittsburgh to visit her attorney. While they had lunch, I wandered down memory lane by doing some shopping (bought nothing) in Kaufmann's then having lunch in Tic Toc. I suspect the waitress was there when I was a kid but I was too kind to ask. She was a sweetheart.

I was born and spent my early years in New Castle. Mom and I would take the train to Pittsburgh, go shopping and sometimes meet friends for lunch. We usually ate in the dining room upstairs in Kaufmann's but it is no more.

After her meeting Sarah and I visited a gallery in Shadyside where she had some business, did more shopping, visited the Apple Store and had "tea" at Coffee Tree Roasters before coming home. We had a wonderful day and hope we get to do it again sooner rather than later.

And Mom was with me in spirit, I hope.

Yet another Little One photo

Tommie has finally relented and allowed Little One to be friendly. Some of you who have been following my blog for awhile may have seen similar photos but with PuddyTat using Tommie as a pillow. I need to wash the window again.
