Ah! Ha! ...


I took the above image at the new sprawling garden at the waterfront, off Quincy Market in Boston. I like that signage with its cool message that for a few moments in time would want to make you Smile! Indeed the message is loud and clear, the ingenuity of those wonderful folks of City Hall, getting the message across with a great sense of humor. I enjoyed it and I believe everyone does.

The area has been transformed into a well manicured garden. It was not there when I was living here some ten years ago. Indeed a great place to be with family members, to wonder in the open space and enjoy the gorgeous environment as well as breathe that fresh air.

After wondering in the market place cramped with tourists, we stop to enjoy a snack of that great pizza. The best pizza that I had every tasted. I had tasted it when I was living in Boston and now I am coming for more and found that it still taste as good. With a cup of coffee in hand like most American do we took a slow and lazy walk to the waterfront and enjoy the cool sea breeze. Indeed a picturesque sight; with the sea as the background, the like of a living postcard. Tourists like us are everywhere and like us enjoying the day. Care less of what's happening in the world at that moment in time. A beautiful summer day; what else should anyone do but to enjoy life. And enjoy we did. Oh! What a wonderful day. Have a nice day as well.

Very humorous sign to curb the Litterbugs:)

On my cruise to Alaska there was a blind passenger with a seeing eye dog. Not wanting to offend, but still trying to alert others that a seeing eye dog isn't supposed to be distracted by strangers, she had put this sign on the dog's collar:

"Please don't pet or flirt with me" :)

Too bad about Rita's Lola, but her husband has posted an upbeat note about Lola's condition.

The weather here couldn't be more pleasant, in anticipation of your visit, no doubt.
