Spring Break - Boston

Whilst traveling the Freedom Trail in Boston who do we run into? Why, it's little Ben. Most of the people dressed up in the Faneuil (pronounced fanel like panel) Hall area were park rangers giving free tours. This colonial wanna be charged us 2 George Washingtons for the privilege of taking this snap, then he tried to get us to invite him to our school to be paid once again. It made me recall one of Poor Richard's quotes "a dollar scammed is a dollar tax free"

Oh, and while we were there, we saw Boston University along the Charles river. Pretty nice University, they have quite the Communications School - everyone is talking about it. They have a Music school too but we had to pry it out of them.

Spring Break - the Family part deux

Our travels took us to New York city on Thursday where we visited the Juilliard School which we liked very much. That evening we stayed in Princeton NJ with my sister Michelle who we also like very much.
That was the day the weather changed. We went from 60s and 70s to 30s and 40s with rain turning to snow. The girl above saw it coming.


Spring Break - the Family

We are just back from our whirlwind tour of the Northeast, colleges, Universitys and relatives. It was a little dodgy getting home, a lot of flights were canceled the day before but we were one of the lucky ones and after sitting on the plane for 6 hours we made it back to Houston safe and sound.

I am going to work backwards in recounting out trip. Our last night was spent with the NJ Police and Sprinkler mafia. We all had to brave blowing snow, unploughed streets and constant threat of the greater tri-state auto drivers and kamikaze squads

Having all wise guys and gals in one place, I couldn't help but ask, as I was snapping this picture, "who here knew anything about where I could find Jimmy Hoffa?" As you can see, this is one well connected bunch, all except the two gentlemen on the left (Keith and Zack) who answered with the number "2". Frannie (the ringleader of this particular event) muttered something about a list and flashed a sign with Patty and Stu's name on it.
