Pittsburgh from the Highway

Some pictures I took of Pittsburgh from the highway while heading towards our hotel.

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

Sharon and I have a knack for taking pictures of abandoned places that were once beautiful photo opts, but are now nowhere to be seen.  We just got word from Sharon's sister that the Hatchers building near Hinton, WV has been emptied out and is going to be torn down.  Sharon said this building has been sitting on its lot for many decades.  It has been an empty building for several years with vagrants living in it and junk still thrown around in each room.  We were unable to get inside this massive building, but took photos of the inside through opened windows.  Sharon got a reading on this building as well, and it will be in our next Abandoned Places book.

This isn't the only place we were lucky to get pictures of before they were demolished.  We were able to photograph an entire town, huge tin warehouse, house in Chandler, a Parson's house, and the church next door before they disappeared forever.

Market Cafe at the Buttes

A nice place to have a breakfast buffet and/or lunch while staying at the Buttes Resort in Tempe, AZ, is the Market Cafe.  The open floor plan sits adjacent to the nearby mountain with a magnificent waterfall descending over a steep rocky surface.  At the bottom of the falls lies a Japanese Koi pond full of fish.  The decor and inexpensive priced food is an exceptionable reason to give the Market Cafe a try.

The Touch

Another teaser for our "Abandoned Places: Abandoned Memories (Allegheny Edition) book.  Sharon is touching items to get a story of those who either lived there at one time or had close ties with the place.

Zombie Housewives of the 1970's Book

I am happy to announce that the "Zombie Housewives of the 1970's" book is now available on Kindle and Nook.  The paperback copy will soon be available to order on  Sharon and I are very excited about the third edition of the Zombie Housewives series.  This book is set in the 1970's in a Chicago-like city called, Crystal City.  Join our latest characters, Mary and Melissa, in surviving the dorky 1970's and life as zombies.  It is everything you remember or heard about this decade only with a zombie twist.

Desert Flower Wholesale Shop

About 6 miles west of Gettysburg on Route 30, Sharon and I saw an amazing display of statues.  The Bigfoot ones caught our eyes and we knew we had to check this place out.  On the outside, the yard of statues goes on as far as the eye can see.  The variety of cement sculptures is endless, with anything you can imagine or even want, sitting on the lot for sale.  The inside of the building has an amazing array of eclectic, unusual to even horror themed items.  This interesting wholesale shop is worth a visit if you are ever in the neighborhood.  Check out their website and see what they are all about:

The Battlefields by Day

This is how things looked in Gettysburg after our interesting night on the battlefields and in our hotel room.  We were on our way out of town and heading towards Pittsburgh.
