Len and I gave a brown bag lunch today to try and promote our Osher blog. I was disappointed in the turnout–not nearly enough people, but the people who came were very interested. I would like to see lots of contributors to the blog. Then it will really be an Osher blog, not a Len and Ruthe blog. Len’s wife made wonderful chocolate chip cookies–the highlight of our presentation.
Since I can’t eat lunch during my presentation I decided to skip my afternoon class and go to eat instead. Then I walked over to the Phipps for a last look at the Chihuly show. I got to the Phipps before the rains came. It started to pour as I was thinking about leaving, so I waited and was able to get to the bus without opening my umbrella. Rain in Pittsburgh often moves through quickly. I find that with a little patience I can stay dry. We’ve had unseasonably warm weather most of this month. Today’s rain came in with a cold front, but they say temperatures will remain in the 70’s for the next week. Still too warm.
I am supposed to walk tomorrow morning; first time since Tuesday. Here’s a picture from Tuesday morning–more sunshine coming through the trees.
I took some pictures today at the Phipps, mostly in the Japanese Garden. I don’t think any of them are interesting enough to post. Waiting for the bus yesterday I took these pictures of Dippy, the bronze dinosaur in front of the Carnegie Museum. Notice how clean the cathedral looks; almost like a new building.
