I wasn’t always good with names. Many people struggle. You meet someone at a party and within seconds you’re hoping you don’t have to introduce the person because you just forgot their name, seconds later! As a High School Teacher I’m now trained to remember names. The power of remembering a students name is so important during instruction. In my former life as a stock broker I not only had to remember names, I also had to remember voices and their portfolio, within seconds of picking up the phone. Which brings us to Ron. He’s been chartering the Nauset with a fair amount of success for the last 4 years or so. He’s a good sport who gives and takes our good natured kidding. He books online, where my name is proudly displayed. We share a birthday (July 10th) and my name is 3 letters long…Bob. He’s never remembered! After some teasing at the dock, Ron and two of his sons, settled into the deck chars for the ride from Truro to Provincetown Rip. We caught our Limit of Stripers on the troll this morning and headed home. Happy Belated Birthday Ron! See you next year.
