Around town in lovely NE.
Well its mid-April and finally the first signs of spring. One tulip in the garden is blooming, trees are budding (somewhat) , the sun is thinking about coming out to play. In the meantime I am enjoying my time here as I try to figure out whether on a daily basis if I am moving next month or staying in Connecticut for a couple more months. No one knows for sure unfortunately. Jason has yet to receive his formal orders to VA and until that happens we are stuck in limbo living in CT. I don’t mind if completely. I like CT.
Jason has his local hangout, the “Harp and Dragon” just down the street, pictured here… where I must take him for brunch if he is to possibly go to church with me on Sundays. This is his favorite place to watch the games or hang out with his buddies from work, drink a Guinness and enjoy some irish grub.
Bailey enjoys the new digs very much. There are lots of windows and he can always keep an eye on whats going on. He also gets plenty of love and attention for Jason. Here he is hanging out with Jason then begging for more rubs on the floor…
Last weekend was J’s bday, so I surprised him with Capitals v Rangers playoff tickets at Madison Square Garden last Sunday afternoon. We drove down not bad, about three hours…and attempted to do some sightseeing before the game.
We decided to try the Empire state building first and if there was time, Time square. Well, neither happened. Yes we went to the game and had some lunch prior. Even spent the good money on the tourist trap tickets for the virtual tour of the Empire State Building and Observation deck. Never made it. Stood in lines for literally two and half hours… Literally. Two hours of that was just for the virtual tour…the other was wasted on an ill run security check that is run by the biggest buffoons I have ever seen trying to maintain professionalism.
So success, for J’s birthday he said he had a great one. He loved his presents and the trip…although we didn’t have time to do much sightseeing there is always next time. I will try and convince him that a broadway show is just as important as seeing the Caps play however next time :)
