Guess where I am?
Yup! Iâ€™m with my beloved Carrots â€˜N Cake Tina. Whenever I come up to Boston for a work event, I usually stay with her, which is so much fun and way better than a lonesome hotel. We met a few years ago through blogs and became real-life buddies. And I love Murphy the pug! Heâ€™s just as cute and silly as Tina depicts him on her blog.
I somehow survived Boston traffic â€“ which really might be the worst traffic in the entire USA â€“ and made it to her house. She jumped in my rental and we hit up the Whole Foods hot bar per our tradition. And then we went on a little excursion togetherâ€¦.
To find DadHTPâ€™s childhood home. How crazy is that? My dad grew up seven miles from Tinaâ€™s house.
Strange to think that 50-odd years ago, little DadHTP would play on this very streetâ€¦
And skip rocks in the bay!
The world is really a small place, isnâ€™t it?
Well, my plans for this evening include fighting more Boston traffic in time for my presentation, and then coming home to Tinaâ€™s to celebrate her 24 Days of Togetherness â€“ a holiday â€˜bucket listâ€™ for her and her hubby. They are letting me crash tonightâ€™s event.
