Five years years ago, in the same hospital I was asked my name and birth date every single time a hospital employee entered my room. It was quite tiresome. The Monday to Friday staff was ever-vigilant. Weekend staff was more lax, which I appreciated. Until the day I was walking the halls for exercise and one of my assigned nurses said, "Hello, Mrs. Miller."
Technology in a hospital is a good thing, as long as you check the fine print..

Last summer, Susan Makara and I saw this fishing boat, the "Unicorn" in Menemsha Harbor. She claims she got the better photo, and she probably did. But I love the one I chose to paint. Yesterday, the "Unicorn" nearly sunk, while docked because of a cracked valve. Volunteers bailed gallons of icy water and secured the valve.
