The Revenge of Green Envy

Our previous Trophies

Benji and Kevin chilling out before the craziness

The cook-off was fun this year. We didn't win, but we made a damn good chili verde. We brought back our Green Envy Chili. Our booth earned a reputation, not for our chili, but for our freekin' awesome Fried Green Tomatoes that Benji was frying up. A good time was had by all and I can't wait til next year.

Wow! It's been a while!

We had a little time before the wedding to have an outdoor adventure. We hiked a nice trail to the summit of Wachusett Mountain, which was ~2100ft, and a very fun climb.

Harpoon is the under appreciated brewery in Boston. We can't get our favorite, Munich Dark, at out local distributor, so we made sure to buy a Growler to drink on our trip. A growler is the freshest 64 ozs of beer that you can get refilled at the Boston gift shop. Yum! I guess my second favorite must be the Ale, which we also can't get around here. We have to settle for the IPA, which is really good in its own right.

Here is Kev in front of the World TRade Center in Boston. It's located in South Boston near the wharf district. We were on our way to the Harpoon Brewery for a tasting.

I haven't made a post in a few months. I thought I'd post a few pictures of our trip to Boston, Concord, and out-of-town adventures. We were able to see a great Memorial Day celebration in Concord, MA.

Pop's NY Pizza

As of this week, there's a new pizza place in 5 Points called Pop's NY Pizza. They're offering authentic NY pizzas and to my delight, Philly cheese steak sandwiches. I'm looking forward to trying those. Kev and I were some of their first customers.
First impressions are that the employees were real characters. First you have Pop's, a man of a least 70 years who took my order, in long hand. Behind Pops' counter was a number of grown men shouting at each other in NewYork-ese about the condition of the pizza crusts. And then there was my favorite, a woman who could only be called Mom's. She has to be Pops' partner in crime. She noticed us standing near the counter waiting patiently for our pie, walked over and whispered to me, "Have you been waiting long? Do I need to go yell at these guys?" I assured her that our pizza was being sliced at that very moment, but thanked her all the same.
That gesture by Mom's made all the traffic headaches and population overload in Columbia seem worth it.
And to those who sneer about "damn Yankees" I say "Bug Off! They make good pizza"!
ps. Oh!, The pizza was great!

Joan's Post

Hi everyone, spoke to Bobby this morning and he has a day off finally. His arm is pretty sore from all the shots he's getting. He does alot of walking around base because their transportation is sparse most times. He's hanging with his friends ,working hard and staying out of trouble.
Love to everyone.

Charleston boat ride

Johnny Walker, Doc & me. See honey, I do wear a sun hat.

The Drop Off was made

Mom and I delivered dad to Charleston yesterday. We were able to meet some of the guys and gals in his group. They're all very nice and ready to get the job done. Older than I had imagined, but I guess that means they are also wiser. That will serve them well where they're going.
I'm sure going to miss you daddy!!
