Rainy days are not my favorites, but I know it made my plants happy, so I endured. I went to the gym and then directly to the chiropractor. By the time I got home, it was almost time for lunch. Then I went to Heather and Jed’s to do my laundry. Then I came home and did some cooking. That was my day. In between all of that I got a phone call from Susie Klein. My friendship with Suzie goes back to 2005 when we met at a weekend crash course to help us pass our tests to get a HAM radio operator’s license. Susie and her husband Jim Hammitt were getting ready to do an Atlantic crossing and Mark and I were getting ready to head around the world. Susie loved our story and wrote an article about us that was published in the Boston Globe. When Mark and I were home in 2007 for Sam’s birth, Susie asked us to speak to her sailing club about our travels. While we were giving the presentation, Jed called to tell us that Heather was in labor. So we wrapped up the presentation and headed back to the Cape. Today Suzie called to ask me to speak to the Wayland Sailing Club in the fall about how Sam and Dawn Weigel first saw Windbird while they were flying over Hawksbill Cay in the Bahamas and a year later become her new owner. Hopefully, Sam’s article telling this story will be published in Cruising World before my presentation. It will make my job very easy.
