GMans B-Day

GMan had a big one today. If we lived in Ireland he could vote and have a pint!

Happy Birthday!
Here he goes into the wood with Jimmy….that’s Jimmy Big Tine. Thanks Lenore.
Jimmy was last spotted looking rather nervously at another target!

Taking in a game

Once every 4 or so years we get in a Red Sox game at Fenway. Last night was a hot one but as always it’s a good time with lots of bad food to eat!

Fenway was hopping with not that many empty seats.

JMan was dressed for the occasion while GMan was his usual trendy self.

3/4 family.

Whole gang.

Here’s a photo from September 2014. The last time we got in a game.

Long time no blog. Here’s a few from over the weekend.

Front left corner of our new place. Jess and I got in to do some more measuring and we also walked the lot looking for the boundaries.

Long since forgetting. Perhaps nature wants to play.

Found these in the woods. No idea what formed them.

Koda sporting a new look! He was not impressed.

Just chilling

JMan and I went to a toy train show. Brought back memories of my own set from years ago.

The details are simply incredible. If this what the road show sets look like I bet the permanent home sets are truly wonderful.

Overpass 1.

Overpass 2.

Just for fun. Koda got himself a winter suit.

Fruitlands

Took a drive to Fruitlands Museum in Harvard MA. Not a stretch for us as its just up the road a bit. The views are wonderful and worth the drive.

Jess and Koda take it all in.

JMan contemplating wifi!

Hollowed out log canoe.

Koda got in a little off leash time!

Koda taking a rest from out Saturday am walk.

Yet another rest!

After Koda was turned away from kids fest at Wachusett Mountain…….which mind you had a dog show……we took the high road….. to the top of the mountain that is.

Today we celebrated GMan’s bday. He wanted pizza at Regina’s in the North End so we happily supported his choice.

Its just good……go eat, be happy.

Thacher and North Margin Streets. I wonder how many tourists have stood on this corner wondering how to walk off dinner.

No visit to the North End is complete without a visit to Caffe Vittoria.

We got prime real estate in the window. It was quite busy….I just timed this shot with no one in it.

JMan an his sausage dog on a skateboard balloon creation.

More fall activities

Today almost all of us visited Marini Farm Stand in Ipswich MA. The highlight was getting completely lost in the corn maze.

The optimistic maze trotters about to head where hundreds have failed before.

JMan choosing an entry point. To made matters worse I left my glasses in the car. So even with a good map…like the one behind JMan I could not see it anyways.

The tape changes colors depending on how lost you are, but green means you were almost out. Spoiler alert….we did not find the green tape.

Everyone tried a turn at leading including Koda.

JMan with our “get me the frig out of here flag”, which I might add we did not use.

Your very lost tour guides.

JMan gets in a hug.

After 20 or so of wandering around I decided to backtrack out of the yellow area and back into the blue area as thats the color at the start. The boy scout in me followed the sun and a few minutes later we popped out in the same place we started. Did we cheat…sure, but hot cider and donuts far out rank the Iowa feeling.

JMan and Jess get in a little rest on one huge chair.

Potato cannon….

Mine turn…I managed one hit at about 4:30 on what looked like a 6 foot square target at 35 yards. Not bad and I’m definitely going to look into building one of these puppies. No AFT stamp required and legal in all 50 states.

Quick run on the giant slide…

And who said kids have all the fun. BTW adults go faster as gravity has more to work with!

Gangs all here selfie.
