Good morning y’all! This is my 2000th photo over on Instagram! Thank y’all so much for following along on this adventure. I’m pumped about meeting everyone across 48 states on the book tour this spring!
One of the coolest parts of Pittsburgh are the staircases. They say a mountain goat built this city.
I dunno if you’re getting tired of Maddie the Coonhound pictures but I’ma keep posting them until they move on to their next city, cause she is the best.
Apr. 22, 2008: Illinois Sen. Barack Obama at Pamela’s Diner in Pittsburgh
During his campaign stop in Pittsburgh, Sen. Barack Obama visited Pamela’s restaurant in the Strip District. What do you think he ordered? Pancakes that were really, really good.
“These really were maybe the best pancakes I’ve tasted in a very long time. Get some take-out,” he directed the reporters. “You don’t even need syrup on them. They’ve got [these] crispy edges. Yea, they are really good.”
At the end of Mr. Obama’s visit to Pamela’s, someone gave him a Terrible Towel, which, “with a fierce grin,” as Post-Gazette described it, “he waved over his head a few times.”
