Driving around

We are still basking in the afterglow of our vacation and I think we will make the trip one more time in the fall. After that I'm not sure. I'm back to work, only part time, back to reality. An older gentleman came to the counter. He's a very nice person. Pleasant to deal with but he has been using the same wrong word since the day I first waited on him. He orders a half pound of imported ham. He says something to the effect, "I don't care if it's a little over or under."
I ask him how he would like it sliced.
"Not too thick and not too thin. Cut it mediocre."

There still trying to talk us, the people of the Boston area, into wanting the Olympics in Boston. Initial thought is, cool! But that only lasts a second and then it's, "Are they friggin' nuts!"
We can't get around now! I suspect there is a handful of rich people who want this so they can cash in. Now in reality, at least my reality, this won't be until 2024. I certainly won't be working then, I'm looking to permanently stop next year, I don't even know if I'll be alive then. Hope so! Still I just don't think the area can handle this, Big Dig or no Big Dig. All the Big Dig did was make it prettier when you're stuck in traffic, or stick you underground, stuck in traffic. Though I do admit we got a neat bridge out of the deal. What are they going to do with the Olympics and if there is a scheduled home stand for the Red Sox? I suppose you would have to get to the ball park about 8 hours before the game. Still in all, it's 9 years away and I'm still not sure what I am going to have for supper.

The weather has been fabulous! No scorchers yet though they are sure to come. Tonight Arlene and I will spend the later part of the evening on her third floor porch, sipping wine and watching the sun go down.

Ok here is the last of the Martha's Vineyard stuff from this trip. It's just Arlene and I driving around on a Tuesday. It's not as rainy but it's a bit overcast. She's driving and I'm doing the video. The deal is, I drive down, she drives on the island and I drive back. I love it because I'm rarely a passenger. I'm not the greatest passenger but I have finally learned to keep my mouth shut.

Ok here's the video then,
I'm outta here.


  1. Boston Boy, I totally agree with you about only the rich would think the games in Boston would work...yes for them and using your tax dollars to make it happen. Thanks for letting me ride along with you and Arlene around the island. You two get along so well. I laughed about the peanut sized squirrel. LOL. Blessings to both of you, xoxo,Susie

  2. Hey man...and Lady. Was thinking about your comment to me. Beth was TRILLED to hear your voice. She called me immediately and told me all about it. Thrilled!!!

  3. Nice header! ( I have already viewed the videos on YouTube.)

  4. Always hard to get over a good vacation.. you wish you still were in all those great places to stay with no worries. Sounds like you are enjoying the summer to the fullest. Loved the video!!
