Away In Montauk

We spent a few days away at my Sister-In-Law’s house out in Montauk. As much as we love our house, it’s nice to get away from it for a little while.

Now that we’re back, we’ve got a week to make the house ready for Aurora’s birthday party. I can’t believe that she’s going to be two years old. I know that time flies, but it seems to me that’s been traveling at mach 10.

The Real-Life “Captain Quint” Dies At 82

From Newsday

Frank Mundus, the legendary Montauk shark fisherman on whom the crusty Captain Quint character from the movie “Jaws” was said to be based, died in Honolulu after returning there a week ago from a shark fishing trip off Long Island, his wife said Saturday. He was 82.

My wife spent her summers in Montauk when she was grow up and knew Mundus. She always says he was a crazy old coot.
