… prospect from Ireland called in.
She’s coming to Boston with a friend.
Made arrangements to provide her a private car and chauffeur for 8 hours to go anywhere she wanted.
She had planned for a pickup at Logan Airport and a trip out to Wrentham Mall, stopping any and everywhere she wanted along the way.
And the next day it was back to Logan Airport.
Much love shopping sprees like this and just in time for Christmas, of course.

Good morning snow
so happy to see you
resorts are happy
people will ski.
some are holiday shopping
and uniting around food
all around Boston
and the burbs.
Taxis drivers wait nervously
hoping to fill faster than ever,
while sipping a cup of Dunkin.
While the town car livery pool
is confidently booking customers
for a spin around town.
Its Boston’s first snow of 2012
its December 1 and fun.
