What was South Shore Volkswagen thinking?

Yes, a German car dealership really has the URL

I'm hoping that this was some sort of accidental permutation of South Shore, and not some twisted way to honor the Fatherland and Volkswagen's Nazi history.

Signs of Schilling

The Red Sox have a lot of peeps in the Medfield area. Signs are plastered along Route 109 proclaiming support for the Sox, especially Medfield resident Curt Schilling.

Much thanks to Carpool Buddy for his participation in this art project, snapping these shots from my (moving) car.

At the begining of tonight's Red Sox game, I heard a huge WHOOOOOSH come from outside. Like a frieght train flying through the air. We get our fair share of planes and helicopters in the skies over JP, but this was different - much louder and deeper. It drowned out TV and the loud neighbors. I ran out to the porch, wondering if that's what a tornado sounded like (people in Kansas say that they sound like freight trains), then thinking that I was losing it, even daring to think that there would be a freak tornado in Boston. Whatever the noise was, it seemed to reverberate and loop through the night sky.

I couldn't see anything unusual (it was sort of cloudy).

How puzzling.

Eventually the giant sucking noise in the sky petered out and I went back inside. Wasn't till I turned back to the game that I learned there would be a fly over, courtesy of the Vermont Air Guard . Those four F-16 fighter jets were LOUD. I now reslove to stop kvetching when the planes from Logan zoom over my house.

T stop gets a makeover

Peer into the pit with me.

This Blue Line station (State) is getting a makeover, according to these workers who were kind enough to let me take some pictures of the work-in-progress.

Arborway stop lives on, sort of

The sign on the Inbound side of the Green Street T tracks still shows the Green Line going to Arborway.

Public Garden weirdness

Some things I'd rather not have seen at the Public Garden - dead rat & naughty statue.
