Did you ever want to play questions?

Did you really think that a mannequin made of bananas would fool anyone? Couldn’t you at least have painted it or put some clothing on it?

Was I expecting anything more than people to just look at it?

Anyone have suggestions on where to stay in/near Boston if one will be renting a car and using it to drive to different towns in different directions but will also want to spend a little time at a museum or two? I know I should avoid being right in the historic center, but where else would the traffic and cost of hotel parking be bad?

Which towns? Which museums? And have you checked AirBnB?

Skegness perhaps?

Grantham? Go see Margaret Thatcher’s childhood home?

Doesn’t Lincoln have a nice cathedral?

Won’t I need more conventional lodgings than AirBnB for this particular trip? Isn’t this a college tour trip with not one, not two, but THREE generations going? And since we won’t have much free time, aren’t we all very open to whatever couple of things we can do in Boston proper while we’re in the general area?

Did I mention the three generations? Wouldn’t the older generation be tickled pink at that suggestion? It’s so crazy, it just might be a winner, you know!!!

Wait a second…do you mean Boston, UK?

(I was wondering how I didn’t know that Thatcher had grown up in Massachusetts!)

It doesn’t matter, it’s not a big college town, right?

Aren’t I about 2.5 hours from Boston?

Isn’t that practically next door by American standards?

Do you know they rent entire apartments? https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/4418314?s=OKwv

And wouldn’t this give any college student a much better understanding of the kind of apartment living they’d be in for?

Surely MOBA is already on the shortlist?
