It's the weekend of sports in Boston - Red Sox (finally out of the cellar. -- yeah, Girasoli - huh?); Bruins are up two games to the Canadians in hockey; we won't discuss the injury-laden Celtics; and the town is abuzz with beaucoup visitors for tomorrow's Boston Marathon. It's the first time in years that an American has a serious hope in winning. Heartbreak Hill is the first of all the 'hills' of the marathon and they fall in Newton. From Boston College then it's all downhill, through Cleveland Circle and down to the Prudential into Copley Square. I'll be watching it on TV and laying bark mulch.
Now, if the weather continues to cooperate it will be a GREAT long weekend. That's right, for us, it's a holiday.Remember - The British are coming and One if by land and Two if by sea? It's Patriot's Day weekend in Beantown...Hope you all had a relaxing weekend.
