Fall Colors ("Colours" for my Canadian Friends)

A recent view from the backyard... Red Sox on the brink of a World Series Championship (Game 3 party with Nichols Athletics staff last night came complete with a "Papelbon Irish jig"- pictures to come? Not likely on here!), my dissertation with MORE revisions to do, and a simple quiet day in New England.

The Reason I Moved Back to the Northeast...

Canadian Thanksgiving at its best. Late night shenanigans on Friday with the family. I can't show the other pictures from this file with the Mom and Craig on Friday night but the 3 AM catch up of all the news with my brother was indeed a highlight. I was a king for a day meaning I could do no wrong on Saturday with my nephew Thomas at my side. Family photo day was followed by some pre-flight leaves raking with Papa on Sunday morning. Samuel once again had me wondering if it's possible if something that damn cute could be related to me. Then finally, one more night of debauchery with the Arsenault lads in the Byward Market on Sunday Night/Monday morning... yeah, I think getting closer to home was a great decision!

Heading Home for Canadian Thanksgiving!

When I first started this blog, one of my first blog entries was about heading home for Canadian Thanksgiving. With the closer proximity to home, I am not exactly getting to PEI but I will be spending some time with the family in Ottawa. When my parents went to Portland, Maine 2 weeks ago, I drove two and half hours to get to them (picture above).

Off to Ottawa on Friday to see the family. Slowly plugging away at the dissertation... it hasn't been forgotten about. Red Sox open up at home tonight. I have been doing some traveling to Cambridge lately and hope traffic isn't too bad...

Will have some pics later...
