Sunday, September 06, 2009      0 comments

I was so uncomfortable with this digital camera that I really didn't take as many pictures as I should have. I even once caught myself holding it up to my eye to frame the photo! LOL!! Here are my last pictures from Boston. The Old North Ch... Read more

The Milner Hotel... in Boston's Theater District

Sunday, September 06, 2009      0 comments

The Milner is a great and cozy hotel. It is clean, has a lot of character, and great service. It was perfectly located for me within a couple blocks of the "T" and the start of the Independence Trail! I checked into a room with a twin bid a... Read more

Finally! Back home in Washington State! Home Sweet Home. At last! A decent size bathroom - and my very own shower. First things first, I made sure my puppies remember me. (Yay! They did!) But when my attention returned to my bathroom, I dis... Read more

Just back from dinner. I had the steak again. We are still hours away from White Fish. I really can't wait to be home - with my own reasonably sized bathroom - and my puppies. I sure hope they remember me. I'm a little overheated. I always ... Read more

Only one more time zone to home. I decided to be pretty isolated today. So I didn't venture up to the dining car for breakfast or lunch. So I tried finishing my crossword puzzles. I finished the one from the Sun-Times, but I'm still working on t... Read more

All dressed for bed and the bed is down. Just got back from from a surprisingly good dinner. Surprising because I ended up sitting next to a 4-year old just up from his nap! I really expected it to be terrible. But the kid only really got cranky... Read more

Just got on the Empire Builder at Chicago. WHEW!! We arrived at Union Station about an hour late. I checked into the Metro Lounge and then went out in search of a newspaper and lunch. I found a place advertising "Ribs" that also had beer battere... Read more

What an experience last night! We stopped in Rensaeller-Albany at around 5 or 6 pm and ended up waiting until after 8 pm for the NYC section of the train to show up! Its engine apparently broke down and had to wait until a new engine was sent do... Read more

We have just left Springfield, Mass - and finished lunch. I had a nice light salad with asparagus. It must be a local delicacy because I was faced with it last night at Trevor and Amanda's at dinner. We also had ice cream with raspberries and ch... Read more

I woke up reasonably well today. My calves are still really stiff. I did manage to get downstairs and partake of the continental breakfast. While watching the local news I saw that a Piper Cub airplane had to make an emergency landing on the fre... Read more

I woke up and started moving VERY slowly today. I didn't even make it down for the Continental Breakfast. My calves ached so, so bad! I think they've gotten shorter. Way, way shorter. I know it's bad when my calves hurt worse than my hips or my ... Read more
