En Route to Boston

At long last, Lolita and I are pleased to announce to our friends and relatives that our long-term plans  to spend our retirement years in Boston, MA, will gradually come to fruition next spring, as our middle daughter and her family, the Nortons, prepare to welcome us after our over three decades of residing in Englewood, NJ.

Indeed, Tanya and Charles have been working diligently against all odds including Covid 19-caused delays in construction to ensure the creature comfort of their octogenarian parents/in-laws.  Below is a photo Tanya has sent us today showing the majestic frontage of our  refurbished residence:

  1. Lolita and I are now seasoned residents of our Jamaica Plain residence in Boston. The neighbors are a friendly bunch, and we’ve made a number of sorties to surrounding towns with Charles and Tania squiring us around the picturesque countryside. Our eldest daughter Ayesha has been a regular visitor from Englewood, NJ, since her new country house is accessible via J.P., and I personally have spent a weekend there, savoring the fresh air and scenic surroundings. Much more after Lolita has accompanied me there.

  2. We’ve got to know our three grandkids, Zarina, Vikram, and Alia better. They are all occupied gainfully in the neighborhood and do drop in over weekends to supper, particularly as their father – Chuck to all, Charles to me – is a pretty good cook.

    We have also found time to accompany their parents to their friends’ homes further inland for a look-see and tasty Indian dinners to boot.

    The only deficit – to my thinking – has been the extreme cold that envelops us every now and then, with temperatures below freezing and snow storms that just the other day dropped 2 feet of the white stuff all aound – and on – us – phew! I suppose Lolita and I will eventually become accustomed to Nature’s wrath unleashed.
