The Long Way Home


Hot Dog and Trash Hunting Adventures

There is nothing like coming home to your husband who surprises you with a drive to Brighton Hot Dog Shoppe to pig-out on chili dogs, chili-cheese fries and cheeseburgers.

And despite my exhaustion on Saturday, I took the camera with us, figuring we’d find something interesting along the way — an abandoned building in Ambridge, which we spotted from across the street of a hardware store. And taking pictures through the car window is always challenging; it’s fun to see what accidents become records of a moment.

I’m getting into the habit of using my camera as a diary. It forces me to look at what’s around me and connect with the world in a more physical way than writing.

We spent Sunday morning marathon trash hunting at the Tour Ed Mine. Some of our finds:

children's readers, $1 each

 

japanese music box, $5

 

3 boxes of catholic school earphones, $10

 

transparency projector and a $21 guitar
