Saturday Jun 1 #


Long day. In Providence with Rhonda, Jess and Cooper yesterday and today for Coop’s hockey tournament. Walked around a bit in the morning. I spent five days a week here in 2002, and it sure looks different today. A little disorienteering to see the occasional familiar place, and then a lot that’s bigger newer and unfamiliar. Quite a nice city, and can’t really think of another American city I like better.

Then off to the game, at a big hockey installation in Attleboro. Coop’s team won yesterday, but they were outmatched today - kids who were faster and better stick handlers, one in particular who seemed to have the puck on a string. They were down 2-0 in 30 seconds, 3-0 by 3 minutes, but somehow played them even the rest of the way to lose 6-3. A moral victory of sorts.

Home by 5:30 only to find there was a memorial gathering for our friend Tom’s daughter who died a few weeks ago. Don’t know the circumstances, but she was a sweet kid whom we knew well when she was younger. Anyway, we hustled down to the local bar where this was going on, visited a bunch with Tom, and saw some of our mutual golfing buddies, whom I hadn’t seen since I stopped playing ten or so years ago.

Got home pretty tired.
