Red Sox Game

26 Sep

Lenore also scored some tickets to tonight Tampa Bay game at Fenway. I’d become a baseball fan if I could sit up here on the Green Monster all the time. The view is incredible! Thanks Lenore.

JMan browsed the Boston Globe on the T.

Field trip

24 Sep

Today was JMan’s field trip to downtown Fitchburg MA. We visited the Post Office, Firehouse, Library and the Mayors office. A few years ago I did the same outing with GMan.

First stop was the Gazebo for snacks.

Post Office

Then it was off to the Post Office where all the kids mailed letters home.

Then all the kids got to wear Post Office shirts for a tour.

Apparently 1st grade weighs 750 LBS. I wonder how much it would be to mail them all off somewhere!

Moving on!

All the kids received library cards and picked out a book. Here’s JMan signing his library card.

Mayors Office

Everyone checked out books and we heading to the Mayors Office.

Mayor Lisa A. Wong came in and talked about all the things the city provides. Then we had a question and answer session and Mayor Wong addressed all manner of questions including one about the gas pipe line that may be coming. Here’s Mayor Wong showing off the new city flag.

Happy birthday GMan

UNOH 175 – Truck Racing

20 Sep

Lenore scored some tickets to a truck race at The New Hampshire Motor Speedway. I was here years ago so it was fun to check it out again. Nothing like a little southern culture every now and again.

The race went off without too much drama. A few spin outs but no fiberglass fragments of crushed steel.

It was a good day and we all had a great time. In the words of a true Nascar fan “That wall made out of concrete too”.

Thanks Lenore!
