Hey it's a new week again!

So here we are at the beginning of another work week. I am usually off on Mondays. I have just finished a couple of weeks working in two other stores. One in Cambridge and one in Belmont Ma. That's where Mitt  Romney lives. Of course the people who work here regularly tell me they never saw ol' Mitt come in to get a six pack of Pepsi and a bag of Dorito's. I was told that Mrs. Romney came in once during the election. She was surrounded by an entourage. Guys in suits and sunglasses. People to take stuff off the shelves and put in the shopping cart. People to point at the stuff to put in the cart. Alright I made the last two up, but she was carried into the store like Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra. OK, maybe not.

In any event, to get to the Belmont store I drive by another store in Cambridge that I worked at for 11 years until 2011. This store is directly across the street from the Mt. Auburn Cemetery. I worked there for five years before even asking about the cemetery across the street. A guy I worked with, originally from Wisconsin, told me I should really go in there. A gem right under my nose. It's beautiful. Landscaped with ponds, hills and valleys, 500 species of trees and shrubs. It's 174 acres with ten miles of roads. Edwin Land (Polaroid), Fannie Farmer and Curt Gowdy are buried there. That's where I wanted to go on Sunday. It is especially beautiful in the fall. It didn't happen. I dug up some pictures I took there back in 2008. That led me to some other fall pictures I took in 2008 and 2009 both locally and in New Hampshire.

Apart from all that there was the World Series game last night. As a Red Sox fan I was, of course happy how the game turned out but there was another unusual final out in the game. I can't wait for tonight's game. And now I must go back to doing as little as possible.

I'm outta here.
