"Har de Grace"

About four weeks ago, I received a phone call from my recruiter that I got the job I interviewed for in this city. She said, " congratulations!, you got the job at Har de Grace, MD"!  And so I have been omitting the  letter "v" when I pronounce the name Havre de Grace.

On my first day at work, I couldn't help myself but ask how to pronounce it right. An elderly patient who I had told me that "it's okay, even President JFK did not know how to". 

I adore the simplicity and quietness of the city. I had taken a morning stroll at the promenade  one afternoon and it feels great to meet the refreshing soft breeze coming from the bay. 

There is some sense of greatness in me that I feel knowing that part of my journey as a traveling therapist will be spent on this old city.  And to top it off, I will be living in a house built in 1822! Exciting!

I, too, find 'Har de Grace' a very relaxing place to visit and keep my boat here during the boating season. It's a great little town with lots of friendly folks everywhere you look!

Be careful when you make a U-turn and watch out for guys with ski masks and guns.

Dave, just trying to be 'positive'. I am well aware but thank you for the advice! :)
