Groovy in Waynesburg, PA

Spent the day visiting a Contractor in Waynesburg, PA. With an office between a maximum security penitentiary and an unguarded runway, you'd think there'd be more traffic … just passing through. Sure enough, right around noon the giant alarms at the prison began to wail. Definitely time to drive a little … faster.

Went to Groovy's for lunch. Had the Special, a Chix-n-Cheese with Bacon Sandwich. Hey now, it was good. Stop by if you have a chance. Prices are reasonable and the food is good.

Late in the evening, we called it a day and went to Pittsburgh. The scenery was perfect - the hills, the convergence of the great rivers, the lights of the city …

And the "rough as a cob" roads! I thought the roads in Oklahoma were bad. This place has axel-snapping canyons for potholes and narrow, twisty death-funnels for off-ramps. I had to snap this image with my teeth clenched to keep them from rattling out of my head.

Eventually we found Fatheads, 1805 E Carson St, in Pittsburgh. How I miss my GPS unit! We timed it just right apparently and made it through the Fort Pitt Tunnel after the rush had cleared. Fatheads is famous for its oversized sandwiches, selection of beers, and being full to overflowing with some of the Steel City's most beautiful women. Unfortunately, they were all my son's age. At least they had hockey on the Bigscreen.

They brought me a bowl large enough to hide a human head. Here's the Chef Salad that was inside it. The turkey was smoked and the salad greens crispy cold. Yum.

Oh yes, everything does go better with a nice Harp lager.

Hope tomorrow is as much fun. We'll see you at The Church Brew Works in Pittsburgh. Hold the table for us because we'll probably be a little late concluding a small business matter … before pleasure.

Sounds like a good time to me. And as for the ladies, hey at least you can look :)

Good morning you cute funny you! I had to laugh picturing you driving off-ramps, taking picture of the city with your teeth clenched… eating a salad bowl as big as your head… how funny!

Well, I’m glad you had a good time nevertheless!

Have an awesome morning!

I've said it before and I'll say it again...I LOVE descriptions of food. Don't know why, I just want to know, in detail, what people are eating! So thanks! Pittsburgh actually sounds congenial; I've never been there myself, although I went to college in Pennsylvania.

And oh, I laughed out loud at the description of the bowl big enough to hide a human head. That's my kinda humor.

I'm not entirely sure what you do for a living, other than travel around and blog about it. I'm pretty sure you're in the mob. And that's pretty cool.

Too bad you didn't get to see the Sheep and Fiber Festival. There were lots of nice people, cute animals, and pretty knit scarves.
