A Weekend Off

Why no posts this weekend? Am I getting lazy?

I had to be in court in Nashville Friday morning to argue a motion in a products liability case and then went immediately to the airport to catch a flight to Boston. I had a great dinner at The Federalist on Beacon Hill Friday night. Work started Saturday morning at 7:30 and was finished at 2:00. I was staying on Arlington Street and walked down to the Wharf to meet an old friend for a cup of coffee. It was 55 degrees in Boston and the people of the city – thrilled at the warm weather – were out in droves.

I went back to the hotel to have a cocktail and then walked back to the North End to have dinner on Hanover Street I love walking in Boston, so I walked back to the hotel about 10:00.

I got up early Sunday morning, spent an hour with the New York Times while consuming several cups of coffee and staring out over the Public Garden, then headed out again, this time to the South End. I swung back over to Copley Plaza, walked out Newbury to Massachusetts Avenue and came back on Marlborough, one of my favorite streets in the country. I had a great breakfast at the hotel and then walked around Beacon Hill for an hour before heading to the airport.

So, I had a busy weekend, filled with a little work, wonderful meals with friends and about 6 hours of walking the streets of a great city.

Now, back to the keyboard.
