I know it seems like I've left you all hanging about our trip and all the adventures we had along the way. Since our return, I've been reaping the rewards of the past 6 months of work promoting our business and thus have enjoyed our best month of sales since we started leasing hearses to area funeral homes. If the last two weeks are any hint of what we can expect for future sales, things are looking good.
To complicate things a little more, I am working with an old laptop computer that has it's good days and it's bad days. My Chromebook is limited as to what it can do and I have no photo editing software to put together the amazing video footage that I recorded on our trip. I would use my tablet but I have no way of getting the photos and video on to it. It's been a challenge with both equipment and time but I will not give up. I have been composing stories on my smartphone as well but can not seem to transfer them anywhere but to my cars in-dash computer. Electronics have taken over my life!
Just yesterday I was sitting at my desk and was asked if I could chauffeur the limousine for a concert. I looked up on my computer when the concert is. I picked up my tablet to enter the time into my calendar. Just then I received a text on my smartphone and then the phone rang in the office. The director turned and looked at me holding 4 electronic devices at the same time and I simply looked up and smiled.
Appropriately, there were rainbow flags flying at many churches and businesses alike. There was also one flying at city hall itself.

So we hung out waterside and waited for the evening's entertainment.
It's a city that's been burned one too many times trying to be the nice guy. But still, they carry on with their heads high. They pay tribute to those that have fallen. They celebrate the diversity that makes up such a great city. And they are very careful; checking unattended bags and watching the crowds for suspicious acting people. I am so glad that we made Boston the start to this years adventure. I'm in love with yet another city. I'll be back Boston. I'll be back.
