I was walking home from work, strolling along Downing Street on my way to the city steps that go down to Heron Avenue. It’s a nice street. Along one side, the houses are a little unusual for Pittsburgh, with the front doors well above street level. The views must be amazing, since the houses are perched at the top of a steep hillside; you would probably see downtown and the Allegheny River valley from the other side of the house. My eye was drawn to an Obama poster in one of the front windows just as a woman was coming out the door to water the flowers on her small porch.
I looked up and said, hey, I like your house. And that’s a mighty fine sign in your window. (This is Pittsburgh and it is absolutely acceptable to exchange life stories with passersby.) Why thank you, says she. I am having a house party and potluck next Saturday to support Obama. Let me get you an invitation. Here it is –
