Scituate, Massachusetts might not have a Starbucks, but I found the local equivalent today at Circe's Grotto, a cafe that seems every bit as popular as "7th and Montana," where locals are greeted by a sign that reads "Unattended children will be given an espresso and a new puppy!" While I didn't see any unattended children or puppies, I did notice a friend from high school who I haven't seen in more than 25 years. I spent today making the rounds, checking out some of my old, familiar haunts ranging from the Lighthouse (where my friend Mary once lived) to Lawson Tower (a Tower built by a copper baron in the early 1900s to ensure that he and his wife always had an ocean view). The Tower -- and Lawson's nearby Elephant Fountain -- remain, but his home has been converted into Condos. Can a Starbucks be far behind ...?!?
