Pittsburgh and a visit to some old friends

Thanks to Chief Francis DeLeonibus and the Pittsburgh fire department, we had a great time visiting their famous Market Square in downtown Pittsburgh. Francis stayed with us for two days to make sure the fire truck was safe and that we had everything that we needed for our stay. I also touched base with an old friend of mine Jim Flaherty the VP of their Local Union #1, he was with us the last time we came through here on our golf carts, Jim also took us out to dinner. On our way out of town we paid a special visit to his daughter Jamie who is a cancer survivor, at her work and snapped some great pictures of her signing the truck. It is an honor to have Jim's daughter Jamie sign the truck, thank you Jamie.
