Last night on the way home from our anniversary dinner, we passed a car that had a GPS unit lit up. It got me thinking about why people would need one, especially around Concord New Hampshire. However, after today, I understand.
My middle guy drove to Boston with his girlfriend to go to the Museum of Fine Arts and got totally lost. But of course he would when I told him to take the second exit after 128 which is now called 95...It was a long afternoon for him and thank God he ended up in the city where I grew up and my brother met up with him to take him to the Orange Line. Which oh by the way,the subway wasn't working and they had to take a bus to North Station in Boston. I guess they spent a few hours in and around Fanueil Hall which is always a neat place to visit.
There have been days that I wished that I had a GPS to find an athletic field in an obscure NH town. Do you have a GPS unit in your car? What kind?
I guess Paulie must have it okay to be able to take buses to where she wants to be and to be able to plan out her jaunts around Vancouver. When I was my son's age, I traveled everywhere by bus and this continued all through college. But even when I was in high school, my friends and I would take the T (Boston Subway) into Boston to go to the Boston Library for research papers. Can you remember when students actually had to use only print sources? Now it's all there at a click of a button.
