Fried Modem Part Deux and A Little Birdie Told Me

New modem fried itself Saturday morning so I
had a repeat visit from Comcast today.  I am
back up and running so I will share my
Sunday Boston photos and a little birdie
that told me…

painted on the kraft side of a cereal box.

Brunch on Sunday
was marvelous.  My friend
Monika is German and her
food reflects her farm childhood.
Lovely cooked sausages and cucumber salad, jicama salad with
apples, pears and walnuts and hearty
bread.  Some sparkling lime water
and rose hibiscus ice tea, all so delicious.
A peach cobbler and cafe au lait,
the finale to a perfect brunch.
The city was hot and the views
from their balcony spectacular.

Beacon Hill and the Financial District behind, sailboats on the river.

A view to the west and the Mass Ave bridge with more sailers
and boats in view.

A brief rain shower
from this cloud and all
was well again.

Hubby David and Tim in the shade
of the balcony.  A thoroughly relaxing
afternoon.

    Wowzer. What a view! Isn't it great just taking a little time to breeeeathe??? ha!

    And, honest — I can't even tell you how much I love that bird. Fantastic!
    Glad your modem is no longer fried, tied and laid to the side. Always a bummer.
    Take care!

    I love that bird! and nice to see pics of ol' Boston town.
    Hope it's cooled off for you a bit. Hot enough to fry a modem eh?
