The new picture, in case you were wondering, is of me and my Grandma Ruth, for whom this blog is kind of sort of named- because she told me once that cellar door is the most beautiful phrase in the English language. Behind us is a nice view of Irwin, Pennsylvania. Behind her also, I just noticed, is the dog, Meatball. You can just barely make out his legs. It must be around 1976 or so. Grandma Ruth still lives in Irwin today.
