Who Drove Whom?

We spent a few hours at the New England Auto Show over the weekend.  The boys are kind of car freaks…although, I have to admit, they practiced much more restraint this year than last year.  There was far less running, jumping, and skipping through the expo….and MUCH LESS button pushing (my buttons and the vehicle buttons).  They found their favorites, found my favorites, and made a mental list of what they’d like to buy later in life to write down at home in new “car show notebooks” that they asked to purchase on the way to Boston.

We were happy to bump into Wally who told us (without words) that his younger sister, Tessie, was at home sleeping, when asked.  It wasn’t much later that we bumped into (almost literally…oops) John Henry and his wife, Linda Pizzuti Henry.  While I was busy contemplating if they were on the hunt for a new family car, a new race car for Roush Fenway Racing, or some new delivery vehicles for The Boston Globe…Finn was more concerned with whether Wally drove the Henry family to the car show…or whether the Henry family drove Wally?  Because, naturally they came together.


I didn’t take a single photo….but the boys took many.  Here are a few of theirs.

Well, Hello Tessie

As it turns out, Wally the Green Monster, our beloved Red Sox Mascot, and son of Wanda and Walter, also has a younger sister….Tessie.

It seems that Tessie has been too young to live away from her parents up north in Boston for the past several years, but she is now older and has decided to make the move to join big brother, Wally.

Meet Tessie HERE!

This Friday, Feb. 12, the Red Sox truck pulls out of Fenway Park for the 1,467 mile long trek to Spring training in Fort Myers. Forget about that rat in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, this is the harbinger of spring.

I’ll be down there to give Wally a goose (see photo of me goosing Wally). If you meet me down there we can go have Italian Sausages on Yawkey Way and pretend it’s summer.

Annual event for me. Next photo I am goosing Wally a few years back:
