Before the melee, Fenway!

It was my honor and pleasure -as ever- to work Fenway Park this Halloween, especially with so much of my family swinging by to partake.

Check this out:  Once when the cameraman came over, I told Amanda to get her camera ready, and VOILA:

Frightful Fenway Magic

Look closely in that haunted park you will see me, Amanda, Gladiator-Miles, Ladybug-Mary and Most of James up on the Jumbotron!  You will also see that corpse *sitting UP.*  Spooky!


If that wasn’t magic enough, when I was finally all packed up and (the last to be) leaving the park, Paul came to fetch me.  He *knew* when I was done because he could *see* me inside the park from this place heretofore unknown to me by the name of BLEACHER BAR, where if you’re lucky you can sit right next to Center Field:

JTJ, Paul, ClaraJane, James, Mary, ‘Manda & Miles


Although the bar operates outside the ballpark, you can see right inside it (even from the men’s *urinals*).  Unbelievable.

Soon it’s time to bid adieu to cousins:

Princess Warrior and Gladiator Knight


Daddy goes to fetch our ride, leaving me to enjoy a moment’s rest with my daughter and a beer.   After a bit, this realization dawns on me and I notice her anew…. at 6pm on Halloween Night.

“Don’t you have someplace to BE?” I ask her.  “Aren’t you a  KID?  Isn’t it HALLOWEEN?  What are you doing in a BAR?”

She giggles.

“C’mon,” I say, grabbing my Giggling Princess Wolf Warrior Kitty. “Let’s get OUTTA here!”

And we do.

We gotta get CANDY!

    What a WHOPPER of a Halloween event!!! Someone in Fenway-Land does the right kind of thinking!! I’m so happy my grandkids & their cousins & their parents (MY kids) had such a grand time. Count on Paul to discover the Bleacher Bar, where you can see the game even from the URINALS! So great that the fabulous, ever-young Grandma Z was there. And BTW, lemme just say, for all that the photos make it almost like being there, NEVER take for granted your ability to WALK on your own two feet! I hope within a few months to rejoin the ranks of PEDESTRIANS. That would be a Home Run!
