aaronbenedict's trip to Pittsburgh, Day 2

With unexpected free time, we visited Opie's grave, shopped for souvenirs in the Strip District, and took a drive up to scenic Mount Washington. Then we spent the evening sitting in the rain, watching (and, initially, waiting for) a Pirates game.


Making tofu omelets








Behold the beauty that is tofu omelets




Shopping for souvenirs in the Strip District












I got the most intensely Pittsburgh souvenir ever. It's an ashtray shaped like a bathtub that says "I had a tub of fun in Pittsburgh." Classy!












Scenic Mt. Washington




























I love this picture of him










The statue of Willie Stargell at PNC Park. aaronbenedict and I both knew his kids when we were growing up.






Hiding under the decks, waiting out the rain












Clearing off the field and getting ready to play










The Pirate parrot










The Pirates' Pirate (of "catch yourself some meat" fame)






I was amused that at the end of the third inning, the Pirates side of the scoreboard read "420"






The end of The Great Pierogi Race




Raining again, but we don't care






Fight!












Final score -- and we won!





aaronbenedict took pictures at the game as well. When he posts them, I'll put up a link.

OK, time to go to work!

I'm so happy for you when ever I see you posting about the fun you are having with Aaron.

Thanks. My instinct is to qualify it or minimize it, but the simple fact remains: when I'm with him, I'm happy.
