  1. Hi DOB, i can’t find that picture you had on FB of the Garnett lounge. It was on Columbus Ave. down by Clarendon. Can you tell me what album it’s in on FB?

  2. Hi, I love your FB page and just found the blog. Thank you for bringing back great memories of the Dirty Old Boston that we knew and loved.
    A video shout out I did for the blizzard.
