I was just scrolling through my old podcasts and Ted feed the last few days looking for things that are outside of my normal favorite list. One of the items that caught my eye were Ted’s about how to beautify those neighborhoods in big cities that have become forgotten. Art is one way to start change and get the direction to change. http://www.ted.com/talks/theaster_gates_how_to_revive_a_neighborhood_with_imagination_beauty_and_art
Until this past season the Charleroi Cougar boy’s soccer team usually hasn’t made it past the first round of the WPIAL playoffs, at least since the year in question. Name the year! Now for a bonus question let’s see if you can recognize one of the referee.
OK for those of you worried about Crosby, being an only. . .you can stop now. Ms. Crosby has increased all of the following: her mileage, time at day camp, doll house digging, visits to dog parks, road trips, morning belly rubs, evening game playing. Her walks have become hill climbs so taking photos, has been very difficult on the walks. This morning she sniffed with a puppy pit bull, popped in her sisters doll house and checked on the […]
Spring is beginning to happen in Pittsburgh. The NHL regular season is now over and the Penguins are beginning their 13th straight post-season this week going after Lord Stanley’s Cup. Crosby the four legged one met Stanley on Sunday at the dog park. Crosby also had a porch weekend barking at all the neighbors as they walked by the house. Side note, she was a very good girl. In reflecting on this first porch day of 2019, it’s good to […]
It’s amazing how far we both have walked. We’ve walked the shores of Lake Michigan, the Allegheny, Youghiogheny and Monongahela River banks, the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico together. Sometimes it was just us two sisters with mom and dad. And thanks to our extended family in Ohio, Florida or the river we may have been walking four wide. I realized that most of the walks may have been for exercise or just to sniff for boy pee, but […]

Steeler fans always road trip. Penguin fans sometimes road trip. They say everything is always bigger in Texas, apparently on this Saturday night so were the Penguin goals compared to the Stars. Green is kinda freaky for a home team color. I kept wondering when the giant was going to climb down the bean stalk.
As us old dogs get older we need to eat more meals, more often, just in smaller quantities. We also try to steal our sisters food if we are not watched. Step 1: Step 2: Step 3: Step 4 for Crosby to slow her down. Step 5: Serve and protect Watch out for the ball. Crosby needs to drop some weight. Our activity level has dropped so her eating her sisters bowl has not helped.
At least that’s what Reba was doing on Sunday. This clock thing changing has feeding time, sunrise and the walk all mixed up. The snow is melting and the temps are slowly getting warmer. Rumor has it once all the snow melts the snowman will be put into storage until next Christmas. For now he will be decorated for the season as it looks like we will still have freezing temps for one more week. So much for what the […]
Welcome to March 1! Here in Pittsburgh there’s this white stuff on the ground and it’s not sand, like in Destin. Instead of posting a snow picture, let us reflect on sunny days. Now since we are old dog’s playing in the snow is a whole lot different than our younger days.
