Choo Choo Train to Cape Cod runs for $35 round trip to Boston

Cape Cod Flyer Train LogoOn Memorial Day weekend Friday, it was hardly full of Cape Codders, but then again it was raining hard and the overhead clouds were bleary.  So this train carried several car loads of people on its 2013 inaugural run.

10 days to Christmas and …

…  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.

Boston’s first 2012 snow is here. Peekaboo!

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
