As seen from the street
Debbie went to the hospital this morning and the prognosis is that the ligaments have come off the ankle and pulled a chip off the bone with them. She is now hobbling on crutches and taking painkillers.

I caught the E line outbound to the Museum of Fine Arts to meet up with Jean and Christine. I spent the day mooching around the museum and then came back to the hotel to check on Debbie.

Jean, Christine, Debbie and I all met up for our final dinner at the Typhoon Restaurant on Boylston Street and then progressed to the Cheesecake Factory for dessert.

Jean and Christine have a few more days in Boston but we are off to Philadelphia tomorrow morning.

A Portrait of Jean Jacques Caffieri - 1784 This really grabbed me, the pattern in the fabric, the way that you could see the pattern through the lace work and the sheen on the sleeves showing the folds was fantastic

Big time cheesecake
Can't blame Chris for breaking her diet with that cheescake. It looks delicious. Tell Deb to have a few of those Pina Coladas and Strawberry Dacqs and she'll be on the mend in no time at all!

Debbie's foot
She actually rolled her ankle walking home from the Cheesecake Factory when we went on Thursday night. Clearly, she hadn't had enough to drink! ;-)
