Attending the Steel City PEZ Gathering

What do you get when you gather a bunch of PEZheads, PEZ vendors, and fantastic event hosts? A real good time! The second annual Steel City PEZ Gathering, a mini PEZ convention, was held at the Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The sizable empty store location that the gathering was held in gave both vendors and attendees plenty of room to spread out.

Over a dozen vendors brought items to sell from new to vintage. There were also a few non-PEZ items for sale like Klik dispensers.

Rick Marlowe did a great job acting as emcee (once he figured out the answers were on the back of the card for the trivia contest!).  We were lucky enough to pick one of the custom tie-dyed bunnies as a door prize from the goody pile to add to the neat convention dispenser.

We had a real good time and Peg was able to add some missing items to her PEZ collection. A great big thank you goes out to Phil Norrell, Brant Norrell, Judy Rosenfeld-Wisniewski, and Eric "Pezburgh Punk". We hope they invite us back for the third annual Steel City Gathering.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
