2018 Life Logs, Day 312: In New Hampshire
Date: Thursday, November 8, 2018
Weather: Sunny; High 50, Low 31 degrees F
Location: At Home with the Kanegsbergs, Bow, NH
My day started by attending the socializing time before the monthly Newcomers Meeting. I didn’t stay for the program as I still had many things to do before taking off for my trek north to New Hampshire. I had some errands to run in town and then I went home to get ready to leave for four days. Just before I left home, I got a text from Justin that said, “Just got out!” This was obviously referring to being released from the hospital. Hurray! When I talked to him this evening and asked for details, all he knew was that the biopsy report showed the bacteria to be block-shaped. I’m not sure what that means. I just hope the prescribed antibiotic does the job.
It takes about three hours to drive to Concord, New Hampshire, from the Cape. I arrived here a little after 3 pm and drove downtown to Gibson’s Book Store. This is fantastic bookstore, so I just walked around feeling like a kid in a candy shop. We have a lovely, small children’s bookstore in Falmouth and a Barnes & Nobles in Hyannis, but nothing as special as Gibson’s. I tore myself away as it was time to get to the Kanegsberg’s for the Concord Yacht Club meeting. The number of people in the club has diminished since Mark first joined in the early 1990’s, but small is good. About half the current members were present tonight and only about half present still own sailboats, but we decided to keep meeting quarterly. It is a wonderful group of people and we always enjoy sharing sailing stories, past and present, and stories about life in general. Thanks to Alan and Helaine Kanegsberg for hosting us tonight. They just became ‘boatless’ as their J40, Atlantis, sold last week. But, boat or no boat, we convinced Alan to continue on as our Commodore. And I want to congratulate my grandson Ollie. I saw on Facebook that he was named an East Falmouth Elementary PeaceBuilder for the month of October. If there is one thing we need in our world right now, it is PeaceBuilders. Go, Ollie!
