For the love of a city

Norm and I lived in New England  for thirteen years.  I went kicking and screaming.  I'm a California girl folks.  Do you know what the weather is like in New England?  It snows that icky white schtuff.  Needless to say I endured.  Made some terrific friends.  Guess where those good friends are from.......

Norm had an office in Waltham which was one of those swell Massachusetts small towns.  He had to go to that office or Boston  proper for business at least once a month and many times twice a month.  I was the lucky wife that got to tag along.  What wonderful times we had in that fantastic city.  We have a soft spot in our heart for that city and the great people that make up their city and the surrounding area.

Boston Gardens (the original place) where the Boston Bruins hockey team play and the Green Monter where the  Boston Red Sox play.  Strolling down Boyleston St, wandering over to the shops on Newberry and then getting off track in the Combat Zone.  I had my first latte in Boston. Oh and my first of many lobsters.  Like I said such great memories of  a wonderful City.

Oh yes and the wonderful Boston Police Department.  What a great bunch, understanding and extremely kind.  Don't ask me how I know.

Yep these folks are certainly Boston strong!!  I applaud each and everyone of them.
