I Like this Bear

Did you know there are Bruins rules?  Well there are.  Here are some of them. 

Most all of us can relate to this:

This one just makes me giggle.

This reminds me of the church I went to when I was a kid... really.

But this is my favorite.

Now you know the rules, you too can be a Bruins fan.  heh.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, another Thanksgiving is nearly here (technically it will be here in 20 minutes according to my clock as I write this). 

As always it's a day to stop and think of all the good things that have happened during the year.  There were many... too many to count. 

Last weekend we decided to head to Boston, see a hockey game, and spend a weekend away from the computers and the routine we tend to stick with.  We should do it more often, but at least we manage it once in a while.

We picked up some tickets a couple of days before the game.  The seats were great.  Bruins vs the LA Kings. The game started out pretty shaky, but ended up being terrific, even if the Bruins lost in a shootout... they did come back from 3-0 to tie it and force an O-T and shootout.

The Gahden was rockin.  I must say - Original Six cities really know their hockey and they are vocal in supporting their team. It's excellent fun. (more on this later)

It was Tim Thomas in goal.  He did a terrific job.

After the game we stopped at a tapas bar for after game snacks and drinks. The other area bars were packed - some with lines down the street to get in!  I marvel that someone would stand in line to get into a bar or dance club.  I could never do that so I will never be with it. heh.  

A couple of guys came in to the tapas place and sat next to us, they were from LA.  Both are hockey fans and they were just blown away by how much cheering there was from the Bruins fans.  They said in LA  the hockey games don't have that kind of fan support.  People come late, leave early, and mainly go there to be seen.  What a shame for the team - they are good this year. 

Next morning we went out for breakfast to the North End Grill and on to Fanneuil Hall to find the nearest Starbucks.  We passed this park with the bridge in the background.

This street where the sun was just hitting the scene.

Managed to get lost right about here. (we went left - figured out we should have gone right)

But later came back to take a picture of the buildings because they are pretty nice looking.

That afternoon we went to the Gardner Museum - it really is fantastic.  I want to go there again and see more.  Not that it's large, but I can only take in so much before I overload.

We did much train riding.  I had to buy some different shoes because the pair I had with me were not being agreeable to walking on cobbles and bricks and generally uneven pavement. 

It was great fun.  We left Monday morning.  I love cities. 

Of course I've been playing catch up ever since then.  Now we've come to Thanksgiving and for a day at least we aren't going to do anything. 

I hope everyone has a terrific Thanksgiving Day even if you aren't American.  Best day of the year.

It's Friday Let's Laugh!

Jeanne Robertson cracks me up. 

This one is my favorite.  She sends her husband to the grocery store to pick up a few things...

Over on FB I saw that someone had linked to a new bit which is just as good.  Doing the Pashmina Toss. 

Now that's the way to start the weekend.
