Trip photo of the day
from Jon Kennedy

Centenarian. A feature of the Vintondale Homecoming each year is a display of scores of photos and clippings of local people: news, memories, and memorabilia. The photo reproduced above (though not well), announced the 100th birthday of a longtime Vintondale resident and a teacher in the local school district, Helen Brozina. A friend reports that Mrs. Brozina's centenary was in August and she is reported to be doing well. Having lost her husband (Mickey Brozina) some years ago, she now lives with a (younger) sister in Florida.

PENNSYLVANIA TRIP JONAL

Wednesday, September 8, 2004

The trip from Pittsburgh back to San Jose on Tuesday was less eventful than the one headed east that took all day and all night on Thursday. After visiting (with Brother Bob) with our only remaining older-generation relative still living in the area, our aunt Irma Kennedy in Altoona, Bob and I parted our routes and I topped my visit with John Golias, his wife Theresa, sister Theresa, and son Brian and his wife, Jen, in Johnstown. Then I went on to a motel near the Pittsburgh airport for an early Tuesday flight. Not earlier successful at finding my kind of accommodations (budget...cheap, if you prefer) in the Pittsburgh area, I was pleasantly surprised to find a new well equipped Motel 6 not more than 10 minutes from the airport.

Of course I still couldn't sleep, having such an early "call" (it's about not being able to "hurry up and sleep"), but it was no problem getting to the airport in time for my 8 o'clock flight.

So back to work. Back to another Fall and farewell to another summer.

Foreign approach

People in other countries sometimes go out of their way to communicate with their English-speaking tourists. Here is a compilation of signs seen around the world.

An advertisement by a Hong Kong dentist: TEETH EXTRACTED BY THE LATEST METHODISTS.

A laundry in Rome: LADIES, LEAVE YOUR CLOTHES HERE AND SPEND THE AFTERNOON HAVING A GOOD TIME.

Thought for today

Cats regard people as warm-blooded furniture.
