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?

Aby-a-Day – September 3: I’ve been working on the railroad…(Hipstamatic Monday)

Cats don’t really “work,” so it’s kind of tough coming up with a cat-related Labour Day post.

So: Trains it is!

Jacoby likes riding the T as it is, but when it goes above ground, Jake really enjoys it.

And, really, what’s not to like?

You have a train, you have scenery, you have going fast…all rolled into one.

Yep. Trains are pretty awesome.

All aboard!

Aby-a-Day – July 22: Riding the Red Line

Part of the fun of taking Jacoby places is getting to those places, because generally that means riding the T.

And even a mundane task like riding the subway is a lot more fun when you’re with Jake.

It’s just so much fun to watch how much he enjoys it!

He’s always so thrilled to be out, and it just makes you smile to see his excitement.

“What? Riding trains is fun!”

Aby-a-Day – July 11: Fun with IncrediBooth (Hipstamatic Monday)

I took these while Jacoby and I were riding the subway last weekend. They crack me up to look at.

Seriously, IncrediBooth is the most fun you can have for 99¢. It’s awesome.

Aby-a-Day – June 21: Who says Bostonians are rude?

Boston has a reputation for being rude.

Jacoby doesn’t buy into that, though, and neither do I.

The people we meet while out and about are all very nice.

And it goes without saying that Jake is nice to everyone he meets, too.

Score one for Boston!

Aby-a-Day – May 12: Adventures in Green Line Land

I think Jacoby has mixed feelings about riding the Green Line (not unlike most of Boston); on one paw, they’re screechy and noisy, not nearly as smooth a ride as the Red Line, and, especially during Red Sox home games, crowded and cramped…but on the other paw, they go above ground, and that means there are things to look at when you look through the windows.

Once the train goes underground, Jake settles in his seat to people-watch.
