Today with only last-minute notice, a good-sized group went looking for mother-type-inspiration and decided to head back to the freshly renovated Shrine of the Blessed Mother in South Oakland, having been foiled in the last attempt by a lost baby deer. We somehow navigated around the Race for the Cure crowds without being blocked anywhere. All was brisk, bright and green, and we traversed a monumental hidden staircase and railroad tracks before heading back through Schenley park trails. Two daughters joined us!
Later on, a story about how the RG networking capability changed a young woman's life in a few days. We also learned about the Pittsburgh Moishe House where young Jewish (and maybe not?) singles can live, hang out, eat barbecue (probably kosher though), play poker and frisbee, and generally get to find each other - apparently there are scores of them, including in Budapest! I guess this could also change a young woman's life in a few days. Also wedding talk - rings, dresses (strapless make people nervous), caterers, and moms (really) trying not to be interfering.

- Dry cleaning from New Life and also the one inside the Market District Giant Eagle (who knew?)
- The return of the Boden Clearance Sale on Saturday May 25! A number of us will follow Wendy's strategic lead and not go until 3 p.m. We may put up a RG flag to indicate where we are in the giant changing room. Tip: wear a sleeveless tank top so you can try things on and then go out for more stuff without having to get dressed again.
