Rob's Boston Adventure: February 2014

Boston's subways now have video screens!
During the week of February 22-23, I (Rob) flew to Boston to help my brothers organize and clean  out my mom's house while Tom stayed behind, took care of the dogs and wound up transporting 2 rescue dogs and doing a bunch of home improvements. We rarely sit still. :)
 TRANSPORTATION WAS EASY! - Flying into Boston and grabbing the "Silver line" a bus line that follows a track like a subway was easy. It took me to South Station where I caught a subway. I noticed that the subway stations now have video screens with information on them. The Boston "T" /subway has come a long way since I used to ride it in the 1980s!
Brian being crazy like the weekend!
 CRAZY WEEKEND  - 
  - That weekend in Boston for me turned out to be kind of crazy. My nephew Scotty had a perforated Appendix so he was in the hospital the entire time (he's since home and recovered) and my sister-in-law Sue stayed overnights with him.

Dinner out with Doug and Brian
   I stayed with my younger brother Doug and my other nephew Brian.

BRIAN'S BASKETBALL - 
On the Sunday that I departed, after working a lot at my mom's house in the morning, Doug took me to Brian's basketball game. It was a really enjoyable especially because I' had never seen him play before. His team won, so that made it even more enjoyable.
Brian the basketball star
  Of course, Since I don't follow sports, I don't understand what was going on throughout the game, but I did understand his effort and that the team won! 

   After the game we visited Scotty and Sue at the hospital before Doug and Brian took me to the airport. That was one crazy, busy, tiring, yet enjoyable weekend.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
