Small snake

Monday, September 14th, 2009

This lunch hour I saw the smallest northern water snake I’ve seen yet at Cutler Pond. It was about the length of a garter snake, and only a little big bigger around than one of those — maybe 5/8 inches diameter, certainly less than half as big around as one of the bigger ones I […]

Quick note – Library Show

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

Arlene was in charge of hanging an art exhibit for the Newton Art Association that’s on display for the month of September at the Newton Public Library. The opening reception was last night. She got to hand out the awards and read the judge’s (except that it’s called the juror in this context) comments about […]

Labor Day Weekend – Sunday

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Since we were going to be in Maine for all three days of the weekend, we thought it would be a good opportunity to travel a little farther around the state than we usually do. Last year we had a good time going to Pemaquid with Charley on Labor Day Weekend. Arlene looked at listings […]

Labor Day weekend – Saturday

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Lego Building

I lost a couple of posts that I had written, because of some server update. I guess I wrote the posts when the data was partway transferred to the new server, but I posted it to the old server, and it never got transferred. Or some such. So I need to reconstruct what I had. […]

Patsy’s play

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

Last night Arlene & Charley & I went to see an open dress rehearsal of the play, C. P. Taylor’s Good,  that Patsy is directing at the Boston Conservatory. Pix here at Charley’s photo blog. It’s about how someone goes from being a reasonably good person to a Nazi. It was in the Zack Box […]

Dinner at Koreana

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

Last night we got together with Anne, Matt, and Charley for dinner at Koreana in Cambridge. It’s around the block and across Prospect Street from where Anne & Matt live. There’s lots of construction on their street (which is a little surprising for this recession) and the area is getting significantly upgraded. We could see […]
