boys like football

Hi Folks-

What’s on my mind? I don’t have much of a feel for

it. A friend of mine was telling me about coaching his son in junior football and how much fun he was having with it. It made me think about coaching my son, Alec, when he was around ten. He and all his buddies. I was a vocal coach, believing that it was one of my duties to remind the kids that they were playing ball, and they had to concentrate on that. We had some trick plays but mostly the plays we used were the same ones we practiced since the start of the season. Plays we felt we could rely on, because we wanted to win. Let there be no mistake about that. We were cool if we lost but it was far better when we won. Coaching those kids was one of the best things I ever did.

The fish tomorrow is great. Halibut, rainbow trout, arctic char, Atlantic salmon, wellfleet oysters. I may grill halibut and make some from scratch hollandaise sauce. I use Julia Child’s recipe and I’ve gotten pretty good at it, enough so that Sharon defers to me on the hollandaise sauce. I’ve never had this but I think halibut with hollandaise would be great. I’ll let you know.

Fish arriving tomorrow:

  • Alaskan Cod, flash frozen at sea
  • east coast halibut
  • Sustainable Shetland Salmon
  • Dayboat Haddock
  • Lemon Sole
  • Swordfish
  • whole rainbow trout
  • Icelandic Arctic Char
  • 16/20 Wild Gulf Shrimp
  • 10/20 Dry Scallops
  • Wellfleet oysters
