Newburyport Visit (Part 3)

Atticus and I spent the night at Paul Abruzzi's place and got up early to have coffee with Tom Jones and Gary Roberts at Plum Island Coffee Roasters. These are the two gents we hiked Moriah with last Friday. Turns out Gary did it with walking pneumonia; he learned that earlier this week. (No wonder I could keep up with him.) As they left Peter and Julie McClelland came in and visited for a spell. That's when Atticus noticed that Peter had stolen his seat and did his best to get it back. After they left, Samantha Stephen, who owns PICR with her mother Joyce Coady, came over for a visit, which Atticus didn't seem to mind at all.
