The Montreal Canadiens hockey team will be playing in Boston this Saturday, the Boston Marathon is this Monday, and 40 girls from Miss Edgar’s and Miss Cramps Girls School in Montreal (Home of the Beavers) are going to be in town for the next five days. Danielle left with her school this morning for Bean Town where the symphonic group will perform in addition to taking in the sights, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Blue Man group, Salem and great museums. It sounds like an awesome trip. Danielle just called from the bus to say that they had to give the chaperon the serial numbers of their instruments and MacBooks because the Canadian Border officials may ask for them on the way back into the country. The reason being (of course) that they want to make sure these items are not purchased in the U.S., which amounts to a lot of Canadian tax dollars lost. Too late. We got Danielle’s MacBook in Chicago before we moved.
