"Ova da bridge and off to Boston and Fenway Park.
Normally when I go to Fenway it's a 35-40 minute ride to "My special free parking spot" but not this time. A late unexpected downtown errand ruined my timing! Heading from town to Washington Street was a sign of things to come. Twenty minutes in bumper to bumper traffic just to get to the rotary! Getting to the Tobin bridge was a breeze but that's where the open roads ended.Getting to and being on Storrow drive was a nightmare. By the time I got to Kenmore Square I knew my parking spot would be gone. Spots 2,3 and 4 where gone also. As I traveled on Commonwealth Ave. I realized many of the parking spaces where gone in favor of a new bicycle lane! I reverse direction and nothing! I finally gave in and parked at a Boston University parking garage for $20.00. A pretty good location,just a ten minute walk to Fenway Park. We just settled in at our seats as the Red Sox took the field. Usually getting home is even easier but not this time. Late night construction hung me up on Commonwealth Ave. for at least an hour! Thank goodness the Red Sox won!

It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
