Easter Dinner in Douglas, MA

It was a gorgeous day here in this slice of New England, hovering on the edge of the ocean, and spring weather roared in with determination. While Susie relaxed after a smashing weekend of sales I went out to Swan Point for a stroll around the cemetery. Nothing in bloom yet but that's not long in coming now.

Anyway, Susie stayed at the shop finishing up a few items -- notably several folks were scheduled to drop by and pick up their Easter orders.

 After I picked her up we headed home, relaxed and enjoyed a lazy afternoon before heading north to Douglas, MA, and dinner with Dick and Dorothy. Uncle Frank was there but Cathy was feeling under the weather and her wit and warmth were sorely missed.

as always on Linden Street, the food was wonderful and the conversation warm.
