This morning we are heading out for a walk, maybe down to the lake

Then we will be making some Lemon Tarts to use up some of the lemons from our tree

I'm sure by now the griddler is on its way to you but I just have to add IT IS GREAT!!! Wanted one for Christmas a couple years back. Himself said "will you use it?" since I do have a few things that looked useful... I wanted it, sent him on his merry way to BedBath&Beyond holding a 20% coupon and $75 in BB&B gift cards courtesy of Discover cashback rewards. Cost him $4.99 plus tax and I have loved it ever since. Oh, him too.

Chicken breasts (pound the to try and even the thickness), boneless pork chops, hot dogs! Yup, split them lengthwise and grill flat-side-down. Mmm... You will find so many things to use it for you won't have to store it, just leave it on the counter. Unfortunately, mine gets stored in the basement along with a bunch of other kitchen things. This house came with a dearth of counters and cabinets.

Getting ready to drown myself and crash into bed. Took our pseudo-son out to Marblehead, Salem, then down to Ipswich for fried seafood. First time he had tried fried oysters and pronounced them "wonderful". Himself drove us through downtown Boston (he is, as the saying goes, a better man than I am) pointing out all the usual touristy things and a few other points of interest that don't make the travel brochures. Gotta be up and out for morning church, big brunch, and then off to western MA to drop the kid off at the Appalachian Trail where he left off. 1540 miles down since he started from Springer Mountain, GA near the end of February. He figures he'll make it to somewhere in ME before he has to leave the trail to get to his new job in July, probably around the 1900 mile mark. He'll finish the rest of the 2178 miles of trail sometime next year or so. Figures it will take about a month of walking. My feet hurt just thinking about it!

'Night all!

'Night all!
I have taken a lot of outoftowners on the Freedom. No more. Go to the Vistors Centers on State Street or Tremont Street. I have over the years sent many tourists on the right track during my lunch hour. No more. Downtown Boston is drowning in tourists in the summer. And July 4th is coming. I used to go in town for the July 4th with the Boston Pops on the Esplanade. I even went with my sister and her famly on the boat. We were tied right up just feet from the Shell. The last time I was there was with my youngest. I wanted him to experience it at least once. He was about seven at the time, but he remembers it. No more. An experience he doesn't wish to repeat. We now both watch it on TV. When I went with my sister, we couldn't leave until the harbor police allowed us to. Only so many at at time as you have to go through locks to get back out to the sea. We spent the night there and left in the morning. A little crowded, but who cared. We had enough food and water to drink.

My youngest and his first wife spent their honeymoon in Maine and they went on the Appalachian Trail. And over the years he has managed to get some of it in, in New Hampshire. It can be quite a challenge.

I don't understand why you don't like to drive in Boston. Sure our streets are just paved over paths. But you don't run into the cows anymore.

When my girlfriend came in from Calif. I took her to the Boston Commons. We were standing across the street from Park St. It was a Sunday and there was parking on both sides. It is a very narrow street and a two way. A truck was coming down and a car wanted to go up. So he went up on the sidewalk. Very typical for Boston drivers. She was horrified, I didn't think it was unusal at all. Yellow light dosn't mean slow down for a stop. It means speed up and beat the coming red light. Folks in a roatary (round about for you folks across the pond) always have the right of way even if it says for them to yield.

As soon as I get word about her wake and funeral I will post that also. I am going to miss her. She was always there playing waitress during our 'tea' nights. And one for you Gloria.
Sorry for your loss addie. May gloria rest in peace.
