Joe and his wife, Cathy, before digging into 4-lb. Maine lobsters

"Joe led a jazz quartet aboard the ferry making the last voyage across the strait of Northumberland, the body of water separating Prince Edward Island from the mainland. Seems like "progress" : $840 million for a nine mile fixed-span bridge that has put the 100-year-old bridge out of business. "It is a history-loaded voyage, and I feel lucky to be a part of it," Joe reports. Joe had taken a trip through Toronto, then Northern New York State (Elmira), where he bought 12 pianos from various dealers. Earlier in the year, he sold and delivered 10 pianos throughout New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. This is retirement? Imagine Joe, the red-neck from Andover (an Andover musician/piano-restorer red-neck?) driving his truck through the New England and eastern Canada wilds, gun rack carrying a music stand."
