No, we’re not on the blogging DL, despite the lack of posts and the title of this thread. We’re still around, though the holidays have certainly taken their toll on both the hot stove in general and this site. We were back in Boston for the Christmas celebration (we’re good Jews, despite the fact that we exchange presents on such a Goyisha holiday) and we did some last minute shopping at the best bookstore we ever knew during our childhood, the New England Mobile Book Fair in Newton. NEMBF is still an amazing place all these years later (though it’s no Powell’s, perhaps the greatest general bookstore in this country) and we felt, well, home. Above is a picture of one of the first shelves we stopped at after we entered the place — it held Johnny Pesky’s hot-off-the-presses diary of the 2007 Championship season amongst countless other Sox-centric tomes — there’s no question what town this store serves!
