Along the Charles, in Bostontown

On the Charles
Photo by myself, along the Charles River in Boston.

Nope, not a photo from New York today, but one from our sister city, Boston.

Above, a view of the Charles River with Harvard University, beyond. It was a beautiful weekend in Cambridge. The schools are in full swing, with the crew teams practicing already.

New York has long and playful rivalry with Boston, involving our baseball teams, our driving habits, our native accents, you name it. The two cities are about 4 hours apart by car, depending on traffic.

Mark, Rupert and I visited this past weekend. My grandfather is a whopping 99 years old and lives in Brookline. (Yes, Brookline, Massachusetts, not Brooklyn, New York). He is in great spirits and insists that he is 97. It is too much to correct him!

Brookline the boyhood home of JFK. My University of Michigan Wolverines beat the University of Mass this weekend in football.

Wow! 99? I guess this means it will be difficult to celebrate your grandfather's 100th.
This is a beautiful scene Kitty.
