Happy to be Home

Boston was wonderful! What a lovely town with interesting architecture, fasinating people and young, fresh faces. I wish I could have stayed longer as our schedule did not allow much sightseeing but what I did see was delightful. DN2 is in love with Northeastern University and thinks it would suit her to a tee. I, however, think that a ten hour drive is a wee bit too far away from mum. Oh, did I mention that tuition is $46, 000.00 per year? No, I think I forgot that little tidbit. But it is a great school with much to offer. The grounds are well kept and the arena is about to embark on a huge expansion (bonus if you are there for the hockey program).

My next bit of new is that the above mentioned daughter has been chosen for Team Ontario. I couldn't be more proud! She will be competing against the other provinces in November and the final game will be televised on TSN (the Canadian Sports Network).

And finally, a reply from Flickr regarding Naked Guy:

My reply:

About Corners of My Home
A place to share the favorite little spots in your home--the spots that make you truly feel something--joy, peace, whatever it may be. It doesn't need to be a literal corner--perhaps just a nook or cranny or object. This is a place to photograph spaces please - no pets or people. Thank you!

Joe: It is stated on the first page of "Corners of My Home" there are to be "no pets or people".

How does this not violate the restrictions?


I am quite sure that if he cannot be categorized as a "people" he can certainly be categorized as a "pet". And did I mention it has taken them over a month for a reply? Still kind of peeved at the whole thing.

Well, that about sums things up. Have a good one.
