A report on the 25 October 2008 Boston boink was posted
to the newsgroup by Fran Kemmish and is reproduced here:
On the evening of Saturday October 25th, Fran, Laura, Garret, Fran's husband and Laura's husband met at
Legal Seafoods' Long Wharf restaurant. Fish was consumed (salmon mostly), and wine was imbibed (by Fran
and Laura, mostly). Garrett provided the chocolate; Laura provided aue-related gifts.
Subjects discussed included the weather (unseasonably cold); Garrett's hometown, which Laura and Husband
had just visited; Frank Gehry's architecture; the current financial situation; tipping; and parking in Boston.
No doubt there were subjects of more importance discussed, but drinking four glasses of wine made them difficult
to remember. I do remember that both Garrett and Laura suggested I try Thunderbird for my newsgroup access,
and they were right. It took me several days to figure out how to use it - because I refused, for once, to
ask my husband for help.
We prevailed upon the waiter to take photographs.
