Walking & Bike path along the Charles River

These pics are from last weekend when we went to visit JoAnne......she lives in Waltham which is about 10 miles from Boston. The Charles river is approx a 5 minute walk from her apartment.

After we crossed over the bridge the path continued on the other side past these buildings.
Guess who is walking on the wrong side of the blue line!
This factory was built in the 1800's & consists of over 400,000 sq feet in 22 buildings.
The first ones were kinda dilapidated but as we went along there were new windows & had obviously been up-dated.  Parts of it have been done into offices & there will eventually even be loft style apartments. What a great place to live with that view!

We saw this little guy on a fishing pier!
This is what he was watching & probably wishing he could swim!

I was trying to get pictures of the gulls flying around.


  1. Great great pictures! That view is definitely sweet! When you say 5 miles from Chicago, do you mean the heart of Chicago?
    Keep the great pics coming!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…

Work, cat bites. hospital.....

After a long winter I went back to work on Thurday & as usual it was crazy with the phone ringing off the wall!  The weather wasn't that great but golfers in the northeast are like caged animals who are finally free!  We had good weather predicted for the weekend & I was scheduled to work both days.  After a very long day Saturday I finally got done around 8 pm & was meeting Popster & Jess in Ballston Spa at a surprise birthday party for Jeff & Colby.  Jess met me in the parking lot & said she was leaving as she had also worked all day.  She showed me her arm where she had been bitten by a cat earlier at work.  She had gone to urgent care & they gave her antibiotics & she went back to work.
Before I left for work Sunday at 5:30am I woke her up to look at it & didn't like the way it was swelling up.  I told if it didn't look better when I got home at lunch we were going back to urgent care.

This is what it was looking like when we got th…
