It's Eloise with few lines to text to inspire you this weekend.
But what could possibly be inspirational about this horrible news?
The idea of locomotive production leaving the Erie plant
has been talked about for many years,
but did we ever believe we'd actually see the day come?
The heartbreak hit home hard this week.
We are all very upset.
Closing up shop seems to be the topic of discussion in my hometown.
I wonder what's next for this guy?
A fellow beach goer found him on Beach 10 and decided he needed a raft.
Even the gulls looked concerned.
Only the Good Lord knows what next.
And we have to trust in that.
Rely on your faith.
What's next for my nephew, Jack?
We all pondered this question as we watched him stare out at the vast city
he'll soon inhabit as a college student this fall.
have faith, Jack.
You will do just fine.
Sam seems to be having the hardest time with the thought of Jack leaving.
Will Jack ever be able to see me play football?
I'm sure Jack will make a game or two, Sam.
This was Jack's reaction right after I told him,
that one of us would be down to visit every single weekend.
We toured beautiful Duquesne University in the morning,
and had the rest of the day open.
What was next?
A Duck Tour of Pittsburgh!
If you haven't made your way over to Station Square
to purchase a ticket for a ride on these amphibious vehicles,
do so very soon!
Equipped to give you the best views of Pittsburgh
a ride on one of these is all it's quacked up to be.
Sam got to captain it for awhile.
After the tour,
we rode up the incline to view the city from the hillside.
This is how good
the standard lens is
on the Canon SX60.
Another Wow of the Week
was my trivia team placing second in the Harbor House Trivia Night!
If you received a text from us to be our sixth player,
don't be flattered.
We didn't call you because we thought you were smart.
We called you because you are old.
We are gamers, you see,
and the theme of the night was the 1950's.
We were looking for our Ringer.
You didn't hear the phone ring!
I can't wait to see what the next theme is!
We'll be looking to secure first place, next round.
Eloise is working on her Erie Rocks! painted rocks.
Mine are special,
and there will be prizes for finding mine.
I'll be hiding some distant ones over the next week.
When I return,
the local set will appear for my Readers to find.
Check back next week to find out more.
What's next for this guy?
I found him at a rest stop on I-79 on the way home from Pittsburgh
earlier this week.
The cool part is this rock is part of the PSL Rocks! collection
from Port St. Lucie, Florida!
He's moving from the warm Florida, Atlantic coast
to the chillier north coast,
but he'll have a happy home at a great Harborcreek beach to visit.
Look for it, Readers,
at a place where sunglasses are very cool.
What's next in the world of music?
Check out this up and coming star,
Have a wonderful weekend.
