Then it was up to Lowell to see the Maine Black Bears (Go Blue !) take care of the River Hawks 4-1. Not a bad game at all. It had been a while since I'd been there -- nearly all the buildings downtown are from its industrial heyday, and at night, it's a little spooky at night because they all just seem too big for a city that, despite the effort to tourist-ize it, is a shadow of its former self. On the other hand, it would be interesting to take a look at the attractions someday, since Lowell is a place where we started to become a nation of companies and workers instead of farmers. And it's only a 25 minute drive from our house.
Today, it was really warm, so we went to Harvard Sq. so S0 could spend his $5 potty training bonus incentive on a book (Thomas the Tank engine, no big surprise there). The weather was more like April and January, so, while it was a little quiet (due to the Big Game), people who were out were enjoying the weather. We ended with a tasty Malaysian meal from Penang -- they've got a restaurant in Chinatown, and also in a few places in New York and New Jersey (some under different names).
They're predicting a high of 60 tomorrow in Boston, so you might want to break out the shorts.
