Friday Night Row and Saturday Morning Waiting Tables

I was called to substitute on the Friday night rowing team.  It was a very casual pace around the inner harbor of New Bedford, MA.   We approached a huge yacht from the RTYC which may be the Royal Thames Yacht Club. It was flying either the New Zealand of Australian flag. I didn't make not of the color of the stars which is the distinguishing feature of each of them. Her name is Gloria and she is classified as a superyacht.

Author and fishing boat Captain Linda Greenlaw, was in the area for book signings.  She is most famous as the woman captain from the story and movie "A Perfect Storm"   She recently signed on to captain the Hanna Bowden, the sister ship of the Andrea Gale, to swordfish out of our port of New Bedford.


While working the music festival last weekend I was introduced to Gus, better known as Reverend Bread.  He does a breakfast for the homeless every Saturday morning and invited me to come down and help out.  I readily accepted and showed up at 7AM to prep things.  

The unique part of this breakfast is that it's run like a restaurant.  The people come in and sit around waiting for the meal to begin.  Because they are not in a line waiting but sitting or mingling in the hall, dialogs begin and soon they begin to get to know each other.  At 8AM we have them grab a seat and we begin to serve breakfast.  Every thing is brought to them, we serve as if we were waiters. Always from the right of the patron.  Today was juice and coffee as a start.  French toast with sausage and home fries was served and there was enough for seconds for anyone who so desired.   This will no doubt be a regular Saturday routine for me.   BTW the help is in by 7 and out by 9:15, so it's not that much of a commitment, but so worthwhile.
