I Saw Cyndy Kissing...

Tomie, Cyndy Szekeres Prozzo, and I recently went to Burdick's in Walpole, NH, for lunch. This winter, Tomie had found two thank-you-cards that Cyndy had sent when both of them were at Pratt Institute. Cyndy had not only written notes, but had created drawings for the cards. Tomie wanted to give the drawings back to Cyndy for her archives.

When we sat down at our table, one of two gentlemen, in suits, at the next table said hello to Tomie and re-introduced himself. We had met him when he was part of the security detail for our former governor, John Lynch. He was at the restaurant with our new governor, Maggie Hassan.

When the governor was ready to leave the restaurant, she came to our table, with Ken Burns (documentarian, part-owner of the Restaurant at Burdick Chocolates, and resident of Walpole), to say hello to Tomie.

Lots of laughs with Cyndy, and a chance to meet the new governor, in a restaurant with great waitstaff and wonderful food. A very nice Saturday indeed.

(If you google "Cyndy Szekeres," you can see jackets of many of Cyndy's books in "google images.")
