Juneapalooza Tour

OK what did I miss? Did anybody get married, become consciously uncoupled, have  triplets, get arrested, have a scandalous affair with an ambitious politician, or participate in any other juicy news worthy event?  I feel so out of touch since Ry Guy's last day of school 'cause that was the official start of our Juneapalooza tour. We started with a couple of college tours, then I went on a girls' trip to the Grove Park Inn, which is my favorite place on earth, and ended with a family trip to Boston because we have never been to that city and always wanted to go. Then BOOM, yesterday was Independence Day. WOW, summah is flyin' by folks. Here are a few highlights of Juneapalooza. Can't wait to catch up with y'all.
Ry Guy at the famous Old Well on the campus at The University Of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC. My family and friends know this is where they better scatter my ashes or I will haunt their asses.
Dinner on The Sunset Terrace at The Grove Park. OMG the view!
Boston is beautiful!
And the food is AMAZING!
The real deal for those of you old enough to remember.
A cheap imitation of the real thang.
What is a visit to Boston without checking out Harvard? (said with my most pompous inflection)
Couldn't decide witch shirt I liked bettah at the Salem witch museum?

  1. Welcome back... I've been to the Grove Park Inn (or I had dinner there, once), but not Boston... It's the only large US city that I haven't been in--one day I'll have to change that (and it better be when the Red Soxs are in town so I can go to Fenway).

    1. Boston was amazing. Can't believe it but I actually liked it better than NYC.

    1. I walked in and yelled, "Norm." Nobody thought it was funny except for me. Guess they get that a hundred times a day.

    1. Cheers was our college TV show on Thursday nights before we hit the real bar scene where everybody knew our name.

    1. I had no idea how fabulous Boston is. We stayed in the North End and I fell in love with it. If I could afford it, I would live there.

    1. YEA for good news with the oncologist! That is the best part of all. Fenway was awesome. We also toured the TD Garden which was really cool.

  11. Welcome back! BAHSTON is my absolute favorite city. My husband wants to move south and I want to move there. Did you do the duck tour? No matter how many times I go on it, I squeal when it drives in the water. Lol
