first went to Pittsburgh in 1983, to rig the One Oxford Centre; after that horrible accident. I moved to pittsburgh (squirrel hill) in 1992, met Audrey there, we are still together... I washed windows downtown, including the entire Mellon Bank complex, but we didn't do ppg... saw those guys going over top, that building had that castle firewall at the top, pretty wild. pittsburgh is the last friendly city in the rust belt, my mom was born in New Salem (near Uniontown)... just an old Pennsylvania hillbilly, coal miner's daughter (for real). the family moved to Cleveland to get out of the mines; I was born in Cleveland... but raised in Detroit. I lived in squirrel hill from 1992-1997. loved it, loved the land, loved the crazy town. watched the Steelers lose two super bowls; Cowher power! I'm glad he won one finally, watched that here in Chicago.
