"Your AAA reference number is '#1' "

By def­i­n­i­tion that is said to a sin­gle per­son in the US each day but it sounds odd when that per­son is you. It’s like win­ning a lot­tery with­out a prize.

My plan today was to hit the 8 a.m. mass at St. Anthony di Padua, then drive up to the Rick San­to­rum Clam bake in Rum­ney, NH. It’s about a 2 1/​2 hour drive so I fig­ured I’d get there with maybe 30 min­utes to spare, but at about 6:40 my wife called say­ing there is a car issue and can I pick her up and take her to work and then call AAA. Found the car but she wasn’t there, (turns out her super­vi­sor saw her and picked her up). So I called from the fire sta­tion and despite being ref­er­ence #1 1hr & 20 min the tow truck came to drop DaWife’s car at T & R Cus­tom Auto­mo­tive for Todd and Raynee to check out in the morning.

Plan B is the 10:30 mass get­ting out at 11:30 or so and hit­ting the 2nd Paw­lenty event in s say­ing steam from her car engine was blow­ing in her face dur­ing the drive to work to throw on some clothes and (It seems the anti-​freeze is leak­ing into the engine block but I’ll let T & R check that out tomor­row). She stopped the car right next to the fire sta­tion on Sum­mer Street in Cen­ter Har­bor NH., how­ever that plan is out because by the time I got out of mass and drove the 2 1/​2 hours to the event I would not only be late but unable to get back to give DaW­ife a ride home.

So it looks like I’ll have to go with plan C the Assump­tion Church Greek fes­ti­val in Man­ches­ter. it has the dis­ad­van­tage of being closer the end of the day mean­ing the post will be later or sched­uled for tomor­row, but because it is Man­ches­ter I will be able to pick up the wife (there is even an out­side chance she will con­sent to go with me) and still make it there before the Can­di­date gets there. (and being a fes­ti­val there is always the chance that a 2nd can­di­date might show up as well.

Mean­while to hold you over here some pho­tos from yesterday’s event at the Bor­der Grille and Bar in Leomin­ster Sat­ur­day the 20th.

Sissy Willis sat across from Tuck but hid from the cam­era. At least one other attendee didn’t want their pic­ture included online. Brian Henchey was not among them.

We held court for 3 hours talk­ing about the blog news of the day and hav­ing a great dis­cus­sion over drinks and lunch

By definition that is said to a single person in the US each day but it sounds odd when that person is you. It’s like winning a lottery without a prize.

My plan today was to hit the 8 a.m. mass at St. Anthony di Padua, then drive up to the Rick Santorum Clam bake in Rumney, NH. It’s about a 2 1/2 hour drive so I figured I’d get there with maybe 30 minutes to spare, but at about 6:40 my wife called saying there is a car issue and can I pick her up and take her to work and then call AAA. Found the car but she wasn’t there, (turns out her supervisor saw her and picked her up). So I called from the fire station and despite being reference #1 1hr & 20 min the tow truck came to drop DaWife’s car at T & R Custom Automotive for Todd and Raynee to check out in the morning.

Plan B is the 10:30 mass getting out at 11:30 or so and hitting the 2nd Pawlenty event in s saying steam from her car engine was blowing in her face during the drive to work to throw on some clothes and (It seems the anti-freeze is leaking into the engine block but I’ll let T & R check that out tomorrow). She stopped the car right next to the fire station on Summer Street in Center Harbor NH., however that plan is out because by the time I got out of mass and drove the 2 1/2 hours to the event I would not only be late but unable to get back to give DaWife a ride home.

So it looks like I’ll have to go with plan C the Assumption Church Greek festival in Manchester. it has the disadvantage of being closer the end of the day meaning the post will be later or scheduled for tomorrow, but because it is Manchester I will be able to pick up the wife (there is even an outside chance she will consent to go with me) and still make it there before the Candidate gets there. (and being a festival there is always the chance that a 2nd candidate might show up as well.

Meanwhile to hold you over here some photos from yesterday’s event at the Border Grille and Bar in Leominster Saturday the 20th.
