Dan, the Oh So Bold  

With Hannah out for Labor Day morning breakfast in Massachusetts with our daughter Molly, I think this is the perfect morning to invite myself for coffee after working out at our Kittery (Maine) gym.

I text our friends who live near the gym, Is this a good morning to invite myself for a 20 minute cup of coffee after working out at the gym?  Hannah is off with Molly for breakfast.

How bold!  I know.  I’m impressed, too.

While working out on the recumbent bike at the gym, I get a text that they’d love to, but they are running a 5K race at Pease (a Portsmouth, NH redeveloped air force base).  Oops, I forgot that this is an annual tradition of theirs to support a group home in nearby Rochester, New Hampshire.

I text back, Enjoy your run.  It seems you’ll beat the intense heat of the day (86F hot and humid is the forecast).

But there are five side benefits to my boldness:

One, I can rightfully say I am at least a modest  risk taker.  If I want to think of myself as bold, I must act boldly.

Two, our friends know that someone would choose to hang out with them on this holiday morning.

Three, it could have worked out.  Never know until I try.

Four, perhaps, they’ll be equally emboldened to invite themselves to our place when the spirit moves them.

Five, my blog readers will know a little more about my love of morning coffee with friends.

  1. Do you consider me bold when I emailed and ask to meet with you and Hannah while I was in your area? I had not seen you since the mid 1980″s

  2. Very interesting and unique blog today, Dan. I’m impressed, too! Although I miss seeing pictures of Hannah’s beautiful 😃, and yours, too, of course! Happy Labor Day.

  3. Hey Dan & Hannah! Glad to tell you I evidently signed up ok for your blog – Just haven’t been on the computer much, but I get to enjoy whatever you’re sharing & I love it! Thanks so much!
