Hopeless Ham

Proud parent: Q recognized the national anthem at tonight’s outdoor symphony concert and with a brief reminder, put his hand over his heart.

Slightly embarrassed parent: He proceeded to pretend to hold a microphone with the other hand, because isn’t that how you always see people sing the Star Spangled Banner?

There were many sponsors to the concert, including a pet rescue clinic and a Brain Injury Association. The latter group provided a booth with safety information and how to prevent falls that most commonly cause brain injuries.

I wondered if it was coincidence that they’d set up their station next to a crooked sign admonishing those playing active sports.

After a picnic dinner and brief stroll alongside the Charles River, we headed home, where I once again was too tired to write more than a quick blurb. Ahhh, vacation.

Wow, impressive that Q remembers the national anthem and what to do for it, AND that your family has attended enough activities for him to be aware of it.

He's looking more and more like you now Lady M! Cute family photo. And we do have a Charles River here in Boston too, were you in Boston?

That is adorable.

But I do love the head injury sign... the bottom line "other transportation" like what? wagon ride gone terribly wrong?

It was fabulous to meet you.

I couldn't see the rest of the causes of brain injury. I'm going to guess Motorcyle accidents and that thing where they crack an egg and say this is your brain on drugs :o)

Looking forward to working with you on the review blog.

Funny! What a great photo of the boat on the lake.

I think it's impossible to sing without a pretend microphone these days. What is the world coming to. ;)

Wayabetty - Yes, we were in Boston for the week - it was lovely.

Chris - wagon trip gone awry - snort!
