What is so rare as a day in June?

In the Northeast we cannot expect beautiful weather the 2nd of June. In fact the forecast was for occasional rain storms. A five minute storm with a couple of loud thunder claps rushed across Hyannis about 9;30 Saturday morning doing no damage to our graduation day plans, merely cutting short Molly, the dog's morning walk. A haze hid the sun but the day was warm and beautiful, the graduation ceremony mercifully short, and spiced by a Wapanogg woman wearing her ceremonial dress and feathers for her graduation, applauded by her very, very tall family.
Cori had the kind of smiling radience one associates with a bride. She was glad to graduate, she was happy that her life is moving foreward. She chose a Japanese restaurant for a hibachi prepared dinner so we got the full show from the chef. Cori disappeared with her boy friend and other friends, her brothers were busy, her mother and I and my ex-husband and wife had time for a nice long walk on Long Beach -- it was warm enough for hearty Cape Cod youngsters, including little bro, Noah, to swim. The beach roses were in magnificent abundance. What more could you want? How about a clam rolll, some coffee ice cream and little cakes? Now that is a beautiful day ... with a quick trip to Joanne's Fabrics where I found the last bit I need for the blue/white quilt I'm eager to finish. Nothing more needed. And then an early morning departure for NYC beneath stormy skies and much cooler weather.
