Radio Control MINI Cooper S

I unboxed my radio control MINI Cooper S and had to sand off the MTTS Boston markings on the roof. Repainted the roof white and applied the Union Jack decal and I was good to go.

Number 30 of 50 limited edition RC MINIs issued at MTTS Boston. Sweet.

MINI Takes The States - Boston

The great Rauno Aaltonen, The Flying Finn. Rauno was fantastic, great to talk to and he stuck around to chat all day long. I love the picture behind him, winning the 1967 Monte Carlo Rally in his Austin Mini.

Fountains of Wayne take the main stage. Great music, funny, and frisbees flying, dangerously, all over. "New Jersey, in the house, as they say."

Sweet dreams, form a shade
O’er my lovely infant’s head;
Sweet dreams of pleasant streams
By happy, silent, moony beams.

Sweet sleep, with soft down
Weave thy brows an infant crown.
Sweet sleep, Angel mild,
Hover o’er my happy child.

Excerpted poetry from William Blake.


An old Mack fire truck, put out to pasture at the local garden center.

San Francisco in October

While combing through hundreds of photos I've never gotten around to processing, let alone posting, I decided to upload 2 from our trip to SF in October, 2007.

Here's a mural found in Chinatown.

Cafe Zoetrope.

Uh-oh, Bella made a mess!

Bella's new friend and best toy for the day was a 5 gal. water bottle.
