Kimball Farm, Carlisle MA
Got a Zipar today. Me 'n Joey took a drive just to get out of the city for a bit.
Kimball Farm makes ice cream. My favorite is Orange Pineapple or, as I like to call it, Ambrosia.
It's been years since I've had it. It's still heavenly.

Cherry Hill, New Jersey

Joe's Grandpop Kowalski passed away, so we got a Zipcar and drove to Cherry Hill for the funeral.
I didn't get a chance to get to know him,
but it's clear that Joe's got a lot of the old man's qualities.
The service was in Polish, but even the Polish-speaking family members
said that they couldn't really hear what the priest was saying,
the way his voice was distorted by the old church's echoing sound system.
Anyway, it was at the cemetery where the Kowalksi family paid their respects.
I'd never been to a funeral honoring a military man. Young people in full uniform were there,
out of respect, and after lowering the coffin into the winter ground, someone
folded the American flag and gave it to Joe's family.
It was moving and beautiful.
Afterwards, everyone met up at the Adelphia, a big restaurant and function hall that Joe's dad had arranged.
Here, friends and family told funny, sweet stories about Grandpop Kowalski,
made each other laugh, and they toasted his memory a lot.
What a noble send-off. I think I'd have liked Grandpop Kowalski quite a lot.

Requiescat in pace, sir.

Edward Kowalski, Sr. (c.1940)

Best Buy - Boston (the one near Berklee)

I don't always go to Best Buy when it's sleeting pellets of ice.
But when I do it's because munk is playing.
Salty boots.

Boston's Getting Clobbered

If my walk to work were any longer
I'd have to slay my Tauntaun.
