Oh when the tide is very low.. I see more stuff in the channel.

Not just wheel chairs. but Bikes.. lots of Lime Bikes. I think more people threw those into the channel than we did Tea in 1776.

I always thought that the Fort Point Channel ended right where the Gillette building is. I didn't know it still extended a bit further into across the way from Ink Block. I learned something new today.

You've got to understand, if you're the Fort Point Channel, wheelchairs are going to land in you.

There was that English comedian from the 70s who said there must be a society that ensures every stream in the country contains a rusty bed frame. And they have a Ladies Auxiliary that puts a shopping trolley in every brook.

The true townies of Southie play Wheel of Fortune, sometimes with Aunt Peggy seated in the chair, other times, they leave her in the car to watch
