Abe's August adventure
Abe Finton had a bucket list adventure this summer. His list consisted of two wishes - to go to sea again and to go thru the Panama Canal. Abe is a retired dentist and a retired Navy man. He applied to serve on a Navy hospital ship which would leave from the west coast and traverse the Canal on the way to provide medical services in Haiti. At 78 he thought he had little chance of being accepted.
After demolishing a dinner of various meatloaves and fall casseroles,
we all carried our chairs to the little stage to see the photos and hear about Abe's adventure.
Congratulations, Abe, and thanks!
