Bartlett Society Reunion follow-up

It was lovely. I really enjoyed being in Plymouth, visiting Plimoth Plantation and Mayflower II for the first time since my childhood, and meeting my distant cousins. Furthermore, I got a kick out of being referred to as "our favorite person this weekend".

This is "favorite person" designation was because I am taking on the position of editor of "The Bartlett Line", the newsletter of the Bartlett Society.

I think my favorite part of the weekend was "meeting" Robert Bartlett and Mary Warren, seeing their wedding, interacting with them at the dinner and breakfast, learning a new 17th century game, and a dance.

If you are a member, I highly recommend attending the annual meeting and reunion!

4 days and counting...

Only 4 days until we depart for the Bartlett Society Reunion! We leave on Friday morning, and initially planned on returning right after the event ended on Sunday. However, the Society president called me this morning and invited me, and my family, to lunch at his home, so I could sit with him, the other officers, and the current editor of the newsletter.

"My goodness", as my Nana would say. I feel quite honored. I am excited to be taking over the "Bartlett Line". I just hope they are not disappointed by my youth, my tattoos (lol), or anything else about me!
