DeedleandThread in Boston Part 2

The short story is that my daughter is living in Boston now, working for a social media marketing firm. However, she was living in Phoenix, AZ., where she owned a house and car. After spending LOTS of money on transportation, she decided to coordinate a master plan to drive her car across the country with her brothers, and then have me meet them in Boston once they all arrive safely. So here we are, spending a few hours together before the boys catch their flights home and I stay in the guest bed. It is called “Hot Racking” in the military, according to my husband. Bunks are shared according to work shifts, so as one (or two, in this case) leaves, the other moves in!

Without a lot of time to do the touristy thing, we made a quick visit to the top of the Prudential building, otherwise known as the Top of the Hub.   Can you see the top level of the building?  Let’s go check it out.

So up we go fifty-two floors to the top to get an incredible view of Boston.  By the way, don’t take picture in the lobby.  You will be yelled at by the elevator attendant.

So what could be better than a cheesy selfie?

Leaving the Prudential Building, no parking ticket please!

Ethan, Shannon and  Sean on the way back to the car.  No parking ticket please!

Ethan had a birthday during on the weekend before I arrived, so how could I not give this lime guitar to my band member son for a present? It actually played a hard rock version of the Happy Birthday song.

And last, but not least is Damon, the dog who protects Shannon from all dangers.
