After a morning walk around the neighborhood, and a stop at Starbucks, we met Linda's friends near the train. She hadn't seem them for 2 years, so it was a warm and welcome reunion. We enjoyed an excellent lunch buffet at an Indian restaurant called the Kashmir. It was then off to the Cheesecake Factory for some dessert. Later, we stopped at Copley Square and enjoyed conversation until around 4:30 p.m. or so.

Concert at the Common and Filene's
In Boston
After they left, we found and enjoyed a concert at the Boston Common near Filene's Basement (If you've ever been to Boston, you know Filene's). The quartet was playing a variety of rock and hip-hop. Beer was $2  and wine was $3-- not a bad way to spend the afternoon hours.

Since then, it's been a quiet evening. We leave for New York tomorrow morning and will spend the last few days of our East Coast visit in the Big Apple.

Otherwise, this is another short entry.

But -- stay tuned....
Monday, August 20, 2012 -- Today was a lazy day -- wandered the city a bit and took in a movie. At one point I was on the phone to the V.A. when the phone simply "shut down". It would not re-boot!! Fortunately, a Sprint store isn't far from our lodgings so I made my way there for a diagnosis of the problem. I figured it was either the phone itself or the battery. It didn't take long to find that the phone had failed!! It's a good thing I've been paying the replacement insurance for the last couple of years. Within an hour, or so, I had a new replacement phone.

I've been looking at new phones and really like  Galaxy Nexus from Google. So far I've resisted the temptation. But, knowing my love for "toys", it won't take long before I have a new phone in my life!!
