Through the eyes of a child

Beth and I spent some time in Boston’s Public Garden and the Back Bay today.  She loved these flowers.  I find them very Seuss-ian. We strolled down Boylston Street looking for lunch.  Boylston is one of Boston’s fanciest shopping districts; I see expensive stores and well-dressed crowds.  Beth stopped suddenly and pointed up.  “Look, look…

Photo update – 3/28

Just catching up on a few photos: From back on 3/8 – I’ve mentioned the new ride but never shown it.  Here it is at the bus stop in the morning, with ‘Dog is my Co-pilot.’ 3/21 – The calendar says spring, but no one told the weathermen. 3/21 – Jasmine watches over us by…

The Return of Project 365

I find that I’m missing Project 365. I can’t guarantee that I’ll manage a photo every day, but I intend to start shooting and posting again. So without further ado. . . March 13 – In Quarters. . .   March 14 – Making chips on the Sherline mill with Beth.  I’ll learn brass soon,…

Furmily update

While scrolling back through the blog this morning, I realized I’ve been remiss.  Back on 11/18 I introduced Jasmine to the Interwebz as a foster cat in need of a Forever Home. As alluded in my year-end post, Jasmine no longer needs a new home.  My Christmas gifts to Mrs. Mack505 included one Certified Preowned…

Christmas (P365 update)

12/25 – Santa brought the one thing Beth asked for.  Woohoo! 12/26 – The perfect storm.  There’s lots of snow in the forecast, and I’ve never seen four companies at the Diesel pumps at once. Also 12/26 – Tea.  With the world’s best dog and a camo butterfly sweatshirt. 12/27 – I’ve always loved the…

Christmas Eve

The run up is over.  It’s time to pour a glass of wine and sit in front of the fire with Mrs. Mack505.  Beth has been wonderful today, positively exploding with anticipation. Merry Christmas to all of our friends and family.  We couldn’t have made this year without you. 12/22 – Cold morning at the…

RFB – EGH

Silence. Sun shines, dead leaves rustle in the breeze. Two hundred firefighters stand in straight lines, flanking the driveway to the church. I’m glad I brought my trench coat, as the November day is not as warm as it looks. The motorcycles and patrol cars have passed, a fine show of respect from our Brothers…

Santa Parade (P365 – 11/28)

On Sunday we took the Mack to Beverly for the annual Santa Claus parade.  Everything ran well, and we had a good time. The day turned into Mack-a-palooza, with all but one of the anitques and two of the in-service rigs manufactured by Mack.  It’s kind of sad that CF’s are becoming classics, but there…
