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.
