The distraction continues, though I see a bright spot opening up this week. Meanwhile, in Boston, the town is a-twitter over the news that mayoral challengers Michael Flaherty and Sam Yoon will join forces, sort of, to try to unseat the 4-term mayor as a team.
Also close to my home, the residents of a thriving tent city in Providence, Rhode Island were forcibly evicted and moved to Pawtucket, a town eleven miles away with no Ivy League university within its bounds (not that that has anything to do with anything, I’m sure.)
Driving around to various hockey rinks and other points of interest I’ve noticed a DECIDED uptick in the number of vacant store fronts. The state of small business in small town America (or at least small town New England) seems DISMAL, to me at least. How are the strip malls and Main Streets of your towns doing? Is is it just me?
Will be checking in all day today — be wonderful to each other!
