BIG NIGHT IN BOSTON

Once a year, because we are very lucky, a good friend sends us tickets to see the Boston Pops Christmas concert. It’s always a joyful experience and is the high point of our holiday season.

This is one Sunday night in December 2015 — at the Boston Pops at Symphony Hall, Boston.

    What a fun night that was — even if Keith didn’t do “The Twelve Days of Christmas”. He needs to answer for that omission. But it was nice to spend a night out with our dear friends. A night made possible by another very, very terrific friend.

      Cherry’s Husband looks like he could be one of your brothers. Is there something you’re not telling me Gar?

        They ACT like brothers. Who know? Only the Shadow knows and he’s not saying.

      It is fun and it was more fun than usual because we went with our best friends 🙂

    I remember this happening. At least you get some class in your concert halls, we just seem to have rock concerts at the moment.

      Boston is 70 miles away. They have everything … but we don’t get there often. Not only is it a long trip, but traffic is always heavy and parking is scarce. This is worth it … but often, just the drive is enough to put us off.

    I’d brave the maddening crowds for that. Sounds like a wonderful time.

      It’s one of the few things that makes braving the traffic and parking worth it. Boston has serious transportation issues, but there’s so much great stuff going on, sometimes, we just have to do it 🙂

    That sounds like it was quite an evening out.

      It is always fun. The music is great … and Symphony Hall (built by the same architect as Carnegie in New York) is itself worth the trip.

    Nothing like a Pops concert. We’ve been a few times over the past 22 years! It’s sad that we are so close to so much culture and we rarely “get to town.”

      It’s the parking. It’s VERY difficult to find parking in the middle of Boston. Even when (as I do) you have a handicapped pass. Boston’s traffic and parking have been getting steadily work for decades and they don’t seem to be trying to improve it. Most of us don’t go into town unless we absolutely must and that’s a pity because there’s so much stuff to do and see in Boston.

        So true. They keep building on the parking lots. I always seem to find the loading zone or some other obscure no parking allowed area.
