In memoriam

We tend not to think about the Battles of Lexington and Concord on Memorial Day, but the soldiers who died on April 19, 1775, are the first ones we should honor as fallen Americans. The fighting that day claimed the lives of 49 Colonists and 73 British soldiers, and set the colonies on the road to independence a little  more than a year later.

Lexington Green

In bloom

Wednesday might have been the best day of the spring to see the flowering Bradford pear trees along Boston Avenue in West Medford and the Hillside neighborhood, which also happens to be the route that I walk occasionally to the Medford/Tufts Green Line Station. The Green Line takes me directly to Northeastern, and I learned something that had escaped me before — the trolley platform is also lined with Bradford pears.

The view from West Medford

Ho ho ho!

These are all over downtown Keene, New Hampshire. I don’t know whether they’re two months late or 10 months early.

Christmas 2023

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate! I hope everyone has a great day. We’ll be having dinner and opening presents with the kids later this afternoon.

Happy Thanksgiving!

May your day be filled with family, friends and gratitude for the blessings that we have.

Don’t drink the water!

Along the Charles River in Waltham. Maybe my last long bike ride of 2023 — it’s going to get cold this week, and then we turn back the clocks an hour. Time to reacquaint myself with the joys of hiking in the Middlesex Fells.
