OK, OK, it was more of a loungin' lizard, soaking up the sun outside the Citizens Bank on South Street in Roslindale Square. Adam Kessel, who found the wee beastie this morning, took it home and put it in a comfy box for safe keeping until the owner shows up.
Somebody who lives on Washington Street near Metropolitan Avenue in Roslindale posted this video of a woman with a smoking habit stealing a package waiting for him around 6:30 a.m. on Saturday. She checks out the box, leaves, then returns (around 1:50 in the video). She probably won't get much for the bottle of coffee syrup inside, though.
Join us at our Progressive West Roxbury/Roslindale Summer Forum with:
State Rep. Jeffrey Sanchez (D-15th Suffolk) and challenger Nika Elugardo agreed on more than they disagreed on, at a candidate forum in Jamaica Plain last night.
Instead, the two battled over who was the most progressive - and how to fight for progressive values - in one of the state's most progressive districts, which includes parts of Jamaica Plain, Mission Hill, Roslindale and Brookline, in a room at the First Baptist Church that was so packed people were turned away at the door.

In our Roslindale backyard this morning (at one point, there were four of them, all pretty quiet, actually).
Glendower Road in Roslindale today.
Workers were busy inside the former Jerusalem Trading on Poplar Street in Roslindale Square yesterday, doing the work required to turn the old home-furnishings stuff store into a restaurant that will serve Cajun seafood in a bag - after resolving whatever ISD issues had stopped work there for several months.

Police are looking for a guy who walked out of the Stop & Shop on American Legion Highway in Roslindale with about $125 worth of purloined frozen shrimp around 3 p.m., then pedaled away on a mountain bike towards Hyde Park Avenue. At these temps, he probably had to hurry.
Chris Helms proves it's true what they say about the 34 and 40 buses in Roslindale - you never know who you'll run into.
A now former worker at the Roslindale post office was arrested and arraigned today for allegedly opening mail and stealing the stuff inside for more than a year, the US Attorney's office reports. Read more.

The Boston Licensing Board's Feb. 14 agenda had a pair of unusual items. Under number 10, Redd's in Rozzie's owner, Charlie Redd, sought permission to sell his restaurant's liquor license to bartaco, a national upscale taco chain seeking to open its first Boston outlet, in Fort Point. Under number 11, Redd sought one of the "neighborhood" liquor licenses the city had won under a state law first proposed by City Councilor Ayanna Pressley. Read more.
So anybody lose a parrot in Roslindale today? Like on or near Canterbury Street? Because James Jones-O'Brien here was just relaxing in his yard, almost asleep, in fact, when all of a sudden this bird just landed on him, his wife, Angela, reports (after first taking the photo, of course). Read more.
You can work up an appetite driving sort of aimlessly around - especially if you forgot to eat lunch - so when we saw the Pizza Stop on Cypress Street in Brookline, we pulled over and went in - and were immediately struck by the large sorta-Lichtensteinish mural on one wall (especially impressive given that the whole place is really tiny).
Compare to the Phaeton legend painted on a wall at Nick's on Washington Street in Roslindale: Read more.
Boston's decision to permanently set up a dedicated weekday morning bus and bike lane on Washington Street between Roslindale Square and Forest Hills was based not just on surveys of people taking the newly speeded up buses during two pilot runs but on data collected in a 2016 study about just whose cars would be displaced by the elimination of parking in the morning. Read more.
That didn't take long at all: The Boston Transportation Department today announced it will create a permanent morning lane just for buses and bicyclists on Washington Street between Roslindale Square and Forest Hills - a week after it ended a pilot to see if the idea could work. Read more.
Roving UHub photographer Daniel Moran was up and about at 6:45 a.m., which turned out to be a good time to spot a coyote planning out his day on Weld and Cerdan streets, which, depending on whom you ask, is either West Roxbury or Roslindale.
