Robert and I are in Boston for him to run the Boston Marathon today.
Our hotel is directly across the street from the Granary Burying Ground where John Hancock, Paul Revere, Crispus Attucks, Samuel Adams and others are buried. Featured prominently in the center of the graveyard is an obelisk with the inscription "Franklin," erected in 1827 to mark the grave site of Benjamin Franklin's parents.
I recalled a picture from my dad's digital frame back at Christmas that showed the Franklin obelisk. I looked for it on my laptop and thought you'd get a kick out of seeing this:
1963 - My parents had been married a year and were living in Boston. My mom's parents and her three sisters came up for my dad's graduation from business school. My mom (second from right) is only 22 in this picture!
2010 - Me
(Please forgive my outfit! I forgot to bring my coat and bought this one at the Vineyard Vines store here in Boston. It's cute but completely doesn't match what I have on. I'm wearing my rain boots because it's been quite rainy here.)
Married for 27 years to Robert, three kids: Will (23), Vivian (20) and Dots (17) ~~~~
Majored in mathematics at SMU, taught elementary school for six years before Will was born, currently tutoring math ~~~~
Things I enjoy: playing duplicate bridge, working NY Times crossword puzzles, reading good books, entertaining, visiting with friends, planning trips, traveling, playing board games, spending time with family, cooking, keeping up with old friends ~~~ happy to correspond with other parents about raising a child with special needs
I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
