This morning there were tulips in my yard.
And buds on the trees.
And a Tomten.
And there were these.
Tickets to Monday's Patriots' Day Game at Fenway.
For those of you outside of New England, Patriots' Day is a holiday (now only recognized by Massachusetts and Maine) which celebrates the anniversary of the beginning of the Revolutionary War - the battles at Lexington and Concord and "the shot heard round the world". It's a big day in Boston - 11am baseball and the Marathon.
A coworker and his wife are coming with me (and my Dad is meeting us there). We're toying with the idea of going in really early and stopping in Concord to see some of the reenactments which start at dawn. It could be my second war reenactment this spring!
We could go the night before and try to catch Paul Revere on his midnight ride. But I think not.
