Our favorite place
Steve and I actually met on the ferry. We were both coming home from Nantucket. Way back when..when we were in our early 20's, there used to be a party on Madaket beach in the summer called the Madakasham Jam...I don't think I have the spelling right but anyway...it was a sort of preppy Woodstock on Nantucket I guess. I only went once. It was quite the party and I met Steve, so even better.
My summer job for a few years was working on the ferry. Looking back I'm thinking..could there BE a better job for a kid? You're on a boat in the summer, going back and forth to the islands. Let me tell you...that was a killer summer job. I got to meet so many great people on the ferry. Ted Kennedy was on a few times. And, I'll never forget Mr. Rogers. I freaked when I saw him. When I was little, I LOVED Mr. Rogers! I had him autograph a hot dog wrapper. Steve got to sit next to JFK Jr. on the ferry once. Geez, forget J.Crew, ,maybe when I'm done having kids I'll go back to work on the ferry.
