We had a short get-away over Thanksgiving!  Our first holiday away from the inn in 29 years.  Susan’s family  all  gathered at her mom’s house on Nantucket–another first.  I did the “Cold Turkey Plunge” at Children’s Beach.  An hour of standing around in the cold, sixty seconds in the water.  I noticed they had a wet-suited life-guard on a surfboard out in front of us, which seemed sensible, but a little while later the Coast Guard turned up in a large inflatable–which seemed more ominous than prudent.  It turned out the Joe Biden was with me in the crowd of fools waiting to plunge.  No casualties reported.
Our THANKS: to Beth, for doing such a great job at the inn when we are away.
