Go south for the winter...NO WAY, thats for the birds!! I love cold weather
and snow so I spent my winter touring New England. How else could I debut my
My first stop was Rhode Island, the little state
with the big name. We
stayed in Newport for a glimpse of the lifestyles of the extremely rich if not
the famous. Now I'm not one who is easily impressed, but wow! I could get used
to that. And sporting my sassy berber fleece in hazy shades of winter, I fit
right in. We did some shopping too, I especially enjoyed Newport's
Gourmet Dog Bakery, YUMMY!!. It was quite chilly and we all needed to warm
up. My family stopped at a cozy cafe called Kalhoun's
for some cocoa. The gentleman working there was kind enough to invite me
in as well, (so he gets a free plug - GO to Kalhoun's when in Rhode Island)
He even served me bottled water in my own cafe' latte mug. And the sandwiches
were spectacular! We all shared in the tasty morsels.
we made a short visit to Mystic, Connecticut, a sleepy little seaside town.
It was very scenic and quaint, but ironically not so mystic.
Next stop, New Haven, home of Yale University, where
I again was dressed to impress in my brilliant red parka. Yale is nice, but
personally I prefer Princeton.
Finally it was my triumphant return to Boston after
a two-year probation imposed after my "alleged" attempted assault on a couple
of Golden Retrievers. Now
let me just say for the record that if I had in fact started something
with either one of those pompous, blonde, bean-town , bozos, they had it coming.
Nonetheless, I maintain my innocence
While shopping in Boston I visited Angel Dog, a lovely little shoppe for dogs
and dog lovers. (doesn't that cover everyone?) I have to thank everybody at
Presidents City Inn for making my return to Boston such a success. Not only
did their accommodations leave me quite cozy after a long day of shopping, they
even kept me company while my family went to a Bruins game.
The only thing missing from my winter vacation was snow. Fortunately, we got some back at home. Not the blizzard that I was hoping for, but enough for a good snowball fight. So now that Spring has sprung, it's nice to sit in the sun and reflect on the ice-capades of my winter wonderland. Between that and the NJ Devils in the playoffs, I'll be keeping cool all summer long.
