52.44... adventures with Dave & other tales of friendship
I figured I hadn't done an arms length "looking up her nose" portrait yet, so....... :-)
. . . . . . . .
Now that I'm thinking about it, I realize that I've rarely made what most folks would consider a reasonable salary, and have often lived very close to the edge in terms of money. But neither fact has ever stopped me from having a very full and rich life, and I credit that to two factors; my generalized liberal arts education, which offers many options and opens many doors in this complex and intriguing world, and the fact that I have been blessed throughout my adult life with extraordinary and interesting friends.
Last Saturday I was fetched at 9 am for another in the excellent ongoing series of "adventures with Dave". For those who don't usually follow this series of essays, Dave Palmater tends to refer to himself as my "best girlfriend". Meaning he's the one I talk to (sometimes electronically) every day, the one who dishes the gossip with me, who acts as my sounding board and lets me do the same for him, who I share recipes with, and who knows all my sordid secrets. He's a radio personality on the big local folk radio station WUMB, and in his eclectic past lives has been a union organizer, a professional breeder of tropical fish, and an auto repair guy specializing in Volkswagons during their heyday. I won't be surprised if there are a couple more careers before his run is through, but educating and entertaining people with his vast and encyclopedic knowledge of traditional and contemporary folk music is what he's been doing for the more than 20 years I've known him.
Now that Matt's re-entered university life as an adult student and has homework to do on Saturdays, and while Dave's wife is often preparing HER radio show, sometimes he and I will grab our cameras and head off on a little one-day vacation visiting some local- but not too local- place we think might be a fun excursion with great photo-ops. This week it was Brooksby Farm (pictured here) in a historic district in Peabody MA, and future dates we're leaning toward are in Boston's South End, Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and further afield to western Massachusetts or northern Vermont. I've been dying to see the Shelbourne Museum. And Dave is one of my foodie buddies, so there's always an interesting meal somewhere in the sojourn, and ample time to catch up on our varying problems and triumphs-o'-the-week. Saint Dave's also the one who has been taking me out for dinner about once a week during my extended period of unemployment so I can feel like a normal person despite my genteel poverty, and that alone wins him an honored place in my "best friends hall of fame".
Most people would be happy- as I am- to have even one great friend like Dave, but I am incredibly lucky to have way more of them than my fair share.
There's charming and generous John, the ex-sweetheart who's been my housemate for over 20 years, whose penchant to sing folks songs all over the house brightens my days, whose MIT training in computers comes to my rescue more often than I'd like to admit (I'm not a technophobe, but I'm techno-pathetic), and whose ability to live with my numerous quirks is surpassed by noone- he's lived with me even longer than anyone in my family!
Alice, whose calm and steadfast support of numerous artists- along for years with her husband Tom before he died way too young- quietly kept many of us from starving or giving up in hard times, And whose "find the best in everyone" philosophy and unflagging smile of delight at all your endeavors and triumphs is an inspiration to work hard at being a better more generous person so you can fulfill her expectations of you. She's been my "road trip" buddy on many a memorable adventure.
Jeffry is the dancer/athlete/graphic designer/web developer who was my first roommate in Boston, and who I've known since he was a 16 year old apprentice in the theatrical costume shop I ran at my university. Jeff and I have this indelible bond because we both have a penchant for being ambitious over-organized (at least in everyone else's eyes) "doers" who have- thankfully- in our older years stopped expecting everyone else to match our pace and come to understand that WE are the ones who are out-of-synch. Jeff- with HIS eclectic buncha friends- throws the BEST dinner party salons, and it was in his living room that I was introduced to the guilty pleasures of watching "Runway" and "Dancing With The Stars". Thanks Jeff (rolls her eyes).
Jack & Matt are my friends in Connecticut who have the most quietly beautiful, the most gracefully casual, the most warm and inviting home I've ever known... no matter where they are living. When they sold their little arts & crafts bungalow in Hartford to move to a farmhouse in Canton Connecticut, I went into mourning and thought I would never love another house as much. And then I sta
Modern blocked east window of Georgian chapel
Situated in the grounds of the Hospital of God, the chapel stands directly to the west of the parish church and to the south-east of the master's house. Having become ruinous, the old building was taken down in 1788 and the present structure erected on the old foundations except on the north side. In plan it is a plain rectangle measuring internally 36 ft. 6 in. by 24 ft. 6 in., with a bell-turret at the west end forming a small porch 5 ft. by 3 ft. 6 in., approached by a flight of steps. The roof is slated, and finishes on a moulded corbel table which is carried along the end gables. There are three round-headed sash windows on each side, and a similar window now built up at the east end. Above the east window outside is the date 1788 with a carved head over. The turret has two round-headed openings east and west and one to the north and south, and has a hipped slated roof with good iron weather vane. An old stoup is built into the south end of the east wall, and the ancient altar slab is still in use. In the centre of the flagged floor is a large slab of blue stone round which, on a fillet of brass, is the inscription, '+ Hic Iacet Magister Wilelmvs de Middiltovn Sacre Pagine Doctor Qvondam Cvstos Dom istivs Orate Pro Eo.'
On the north wall is a brass with an inscription in Gothic characters: 'Orate pro a[nima]abus Nicholai hulme Jo[han]is Kelyng et Wi[llel]mi Estfelde clericorum quond[am] huius hospital's magistrorum ac parentum fundatorum suorum benefactorum atqz o[mniu]m fidelium def[un]ctorum quorum a[nimabus] p[ro]picietr deus Amen.'
The interior of the chapel was restored in 1899 and new oak fittings in the 18th-century style inserted.
Hutchinson, writing a few years before the demolition of the old chapel, describes the chancel as entire, but the nave as much mutilated, 'nothing but the cross aile remaining at the north-west and southwest corners, at which you enter; and there is a short aile at each end, formed by two pillars supporting pointed arches … the pillars of the south aile are circular, the north octagonal.' The chancel alone was then used for divine service, the 'outer part serving as a saloon or portico, separated by a screen and stalls covered with heavy canopies of wood-work.' Over the entrance to the chancel were the Royal arms dated 1696. The chapel contained a 'fine recumbent effigy, delicately cut in stone,' and the wooden effigy of an ecclesiastic said to have been that of Andrew Stanley, the first master. Both figures have disappeared. Below the latter was found a stone coffin containing a skeleton with a chalice lying on the left side.
The Hospital of God was founded by Robert de Stichell, the Bishop of Durham in 1273 to care for poor and elderly people.
King Henry III had obtained the Manor of Greatham from Simon de Montfort following his defeat at the battle of Evesham in 1265. Robert de Stichell then made and won a legal claim for the land on the basis that as Crown Palatine he had the right to all land plundered or gained within his royal franchise as Bishop of Durham.
Having obtained possession of the Manor of Greatham the Bishop built the first Hospital - a place of shelter and hospitality - for five priests and forty poor lay men. He installed a Master to care for them and dedicated the Hospital to the Honour of God, the Blessed Virgin Mary and Saint Cuthbert.
