Looking Forward, Looking Back

This is going to be a great season and celebration of Fenway Park’s 100th anniversary.  I want to start with this shot from the Green Monster on Opening Day (a great win, and proof that sometimes good things happen on Friday the 13th).  There are interesting and exciting things happening and lots to talk about- Girl Scout Dog Treats at Fenway,  55,000 visitors who came to Fenway Park yesterday for a free Open House and autographs with past and present players, MSNBC Morning Joe broadcasting from the field this morning, today’s game which will be packed with surprises (great TiVO material), and that is just the beginning.  Maybe people would shift their talk to these things rather than other old stuff like  Seamus the dog. I would like to have some dreams about old Fenway, and new world series rather than nightmares of riding on the roof of a car like a dead moose.

Thanks for reading and thanks for writing back,

Scouting at Fenway

Dogs always love parks…but I am particularly attracted to The Park.  I took a trip in to Boston this week to check on the turf*, and met my friends from the Girl Scouts, Canine Companions and Clear Channel, to have some photos taken for a billboard.  Spoiler alert in case you would like to be surprised during one of your upcoming commutes this month. Here is a hint at least:  we have all cooked up a special surprise with the help of Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts, Canine Companions for Independence, Eukanuba (big giveaway) and the mighty Red Sox….it will be a real treat and will raise money, awareness & make tails wag.  Great way to celebrate the 100th birthdays of Fenway Park and the Girl Scouts. By the way,   I was reading Juliette Gordon Low’s biography (Founder of the Girl Scouts of the USA)- I think you should too- she was a remarkable person.  In case you don’t have time to read it now, I will point out that the Girl Scouts were ahead of the game a century ago as they welcomed girls with disabilities at a time when they were excluded from many activities.  Mrs. Low did not let deafness, or serious health problems stand in the way of her life or service to others.  When I grow up, I will be able to do important work like my friend Frontier in the photo….extra bonus that he gets to assist a Girl Scout who is in turn helping others!
