I may not have completely embraced retirement since I very nearly answered the phone this afternoon with the cheery greeting "Information Services". But at least I knew that I didn't have to go to work on a Thursday evening.
That meant I could drive to Cambridge for an entirely pleasant event, the One Book, One Community author reading by Louise Penny. I hated arriving at these OBOC evenings, after my shift on the Information Desk in time for the final question. But tonight I got to hear the whole thing --the readings, the questions, the complete and entertaining package. She was wonderful!
