My much better 1/2 surprise me with a day at the American Heritage Museum in Stow MA for Father’s Day.
I was trying for years to get over there but never quite made it. We first took in an antique car show with some great looking classics from the thirties. They sure don’t make them like they used to.
I didn’t take any photos of the drive by but snapped a few after the cars were returned to their garage.
After the cars we checked out some airplanes….and a few modern race cars. This place really has something for every type of gear head.
The tank ride was a complete surprise and definitely a lot of fun. JMan and I rode up top and GMan got in the hot seat next to the driver. He got to steer a few time during our excursion. Other than starting and stopping the ride was very smooth, along the lines of a very heavy farm tractor.
Too bad the 50 cal was not working, it would be a hoot to create some brass rainbow while cruising around.
Go here for additional information on the M24 Chaffee Tank.

April 18th 1986 I stepped onto a plane in Dublin Ireland with a return ticket I was fairly certain I would not use.
Today I’m 35 years in America. Apparently I did not use that ticket!
Here’s a few photos of my mom’s trip. It was great having her over and we are looking forward to her next visit in August.
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.
Here’s a photo from September 2014. The last time we got in a game.
I’m rather partial to Starbucks but now our ball of hair can also enjoy a sup of something with a silly name but only one ingredients! It’s on the super secret menu and it’s rightly named a Puppuccino.
My better 1/2 also gets in on the action, but with a slightly longer name and a few more ingredients.
However, here’s a good example of a customer order you really want to be front of:
I need a Double Ristretto Venti Half-Soy Nonfat Decaf Organic Chocolate Brownie Iced Vanilla Double-Shot Gingerbread Frappuccino Extra Hot With Foam Whipped Cream Upside Down Double Blended, One Sweet’N Low and One Nutrasweet, and Ice……oh and I have rewards!
It’s official….the for sale sign went up today. It will hit MLS in a bit. Anyone in the market for a great house on a quite street come on over.
As we’d say in Ireland “bhaile ar diol”
It was a good run, 14 years and some change but lots of change for us. The time has come to downsize. I’ll miss 20 Bayberry Road Groton MA for a bit, but like I always say….”I made the big move years ago, everything else is incidental”.
