The Rhinebeck Chronicles pt2

Alright, here we are in historic Rhinebeck. There are no hotels here, only Bed and Breakfasts. We are staying in a very cute inn that was built in 1740, making it older than Dick Cheney, but not by much. We got in on a Saturday night because to fly out on Sunday would have been about 2 million dollars more. The innkeeper told us about 5 times that they usually do not accept children on the weekends. So I found myself shushing Little Bird more than usual. She's a little hyper and a lot proprioceptive seeking, so there's a lot of jumping, which makes a lot of noise on these five thousand year old wide wooden plank floors. Our room is cute and is considered a suite because it has a littler room attached to it with a twin bed for the bird.


Last night we ventured into the village and grabbed a bite to eat. The kid at the next table lined up all the jelly packets. Wonder if they're here to see Dr. Bock, too? We found a really cute little chocolate shop and spoke with the owner. Everyone here knows Dr. Bock and what he does. The shop's owner mentioned that he has the best coffee in town, so I will be back there today. Plus, I've already eaten all the almond covered english toffee I bought last night.

It's very nice that the Doc has the sense to be located in such a cute town! I'm sending well wishes for your appointment.
