NaNoWriMo: Day 15

Well, he wasn’t getting any warmer just standing there, Jacoby thought. He started trotting towards Romeo’s den. Now that he was outside, he might as well go hang out with his friend. Maybe together, they could figure out why Tessie and Angel didn’t approve of their being friends.

Moving was helping to warm him up, but Jacoby was still chilly. Fortunately, Romeo’s den was not far away. His pace quickened as he saw the familiar metal web. “Hey, Romeo! Romeo, are you there?” Jacoby yowled.

Romeo appeared and slithered underneath the fence. “Jake? What are you doing here? Where’s your human?”

“I kind of snuck out. I’m here alone. I just wanted to talk to you.”

“You did? Why? What’s going on?” Romeo asked.

“Can I come in, first?” Jacoby countered. “I’m kind of cold.”

Aby-a-Day – November 19: Riding the rails (Hipstamatic Monday)

One thing that Jacoby never gets tired of is looking out the window when we take the Red Line to Cambridge.

Charles/MGH the one spot on the northern part of the Red Line that goes above ground to cross the Charles River.

The station itself is on the Boston side of the river.

It’s like a little preview before taking the scenic hop across the Charles and then going back underground in Cambridge.

It’s funny; Gun-Hee used to love going through Charles/MGH and the river and looking out the window at Boston and boats and sun instead of dark, sooty tunnel walls, too.

And really, who can blame them?
