This past summer I visited my Godfather and his family. They live in East Hampstead, NH. The first night I was there, Jennifer and I got on the subject about our love for John Mayer. We talked about his summer tour and how we both would love to see him live again soon. I proceeded to look for his upcoming tour dates. Much to our surprise, he would be in the area while I was visiting. We found a pair of great seats (10 rows from the stage!) and proceeded to purchase them. Our plan had been to visit the city of Boston, so we made arrangements to take the train into Boston, then back to Mansfield, MA to go to the show later that night. After a great day in Boston, we headed to the concert...
What a show. John is definitely one of my favorite musicians. While at the show, I was able to take photos with my Godfather's borrowed telephoto lens.
Here are some of my favorite captures of the night:
I love concert photography. There's just something about it...
In April of 2006 I was rear ended and was pushed into the truck in front of me. (I don't have the pictures to post at work, but maybe I'll add them later.)
That car was totaled and not too long after that I bought a car off of a friend of my Abueals.
In June of 2006 I was turning left onto 9th street out of my neighborhood. For anybody who has tried to turn left out of our neighborhood, well, you know how impossible that can be. So as I was attempting to turn left, I didn't see a car that was coming and I was t-boned. Luckily Gods holy angels were surrounding me and my car (Reminds me of Gramma.) and I walked out of that (after blacking out.) with miner cuts and sores.
Needless to say, 2006 was not a good year for me and cars.
I was then given a manual car from a friend while I searched for a new car, but I was not too keen on the idea, so my brothers took over that car and I ended up with a 1989 Toyota Tercel that they were given. Joy! ha! Oh yeah and did I mention it has no air? In Florida....
After 1 1/2, or 2 years of driving that beast, I finally got the car of my dreams.
Our friends, the Devines, have been keeping Barry's dads car, (a 2000 Volvo S80) since he has not been driving. It took some long decision making, they finally decided to sell it to me. :) I'm very happy with the car and so glad that it worked out.
and the New:
Everything happens for a reason. Patience does pay off... And gives you something to have to pay off. Ha!
