Maybe the rain came to prevent more dawdling, maybe not; but there must be a reason behind the continuing wet. Rain dampens, so to speak, any enthusiasm for morning coffee on the deck, so with thermos I’ve moved inside to ready Roseledge Book’s overdue, first summer book order.
Fig. #55. I'm looking out the side/front windows as you walk up the Sea Street hill to Roseledge Books. Hurry up.

Thus ends First Order, Part 1, A-D. New mystery series to try, another look at an old college hero (Pierre Teilhard de Chardin), seafaring tales, Maine books, explorations or discoveries, authors or books that sounded interesting in reviews or interviews — all sound good to me. But to what Roseledge Books purpose?
First Order, Part 2 coming soon.
