Edgartown: Summer has officially arrived

Summer has officially arrived. The calendar made it official last week. Mother Nature has brought hot and humid temps our way. The last day of school was Monday. We can breathe for a couple...

Edgartown: The bell will ring

As I write this, I find myself heading into a three-day weekend without anything to do. Well, that’s not exactly true. I have report cards to write, and always work to do around the...

Edgartown: Wrapped in rainbows

I’m writing this column from my gingerbread cottage porch, listening to the rain trickle as the hoots and hollers ring out from the Tabernacle. Graduation has returned to the Tabernacle for the first time...

Edgartown: Honoring the late Herb Foster

Well, remember last week when I wrote that I should have been in D.C. with the eighth grade? Turns out, I spent most of the week in bed instead. Try as I did, with...

Edgartown: Timing is everything

By the time you read this, I should be firmly ensconced in D.C. with our fantastic eighth graders and amazing group of chaperones, if I’m not still sidelined by COVID. Yup, I finally got...

I hope everyone is ready, because like it or not, Memorial Day weekend is upon us, and based on last Friday when I walked through Oak Bluffs to get off this rock, the people...

Edgartown: 20 on the 20th

I can’t believe that we are already in the third week of May. I’m thinking that the gray, windy weather is playing games with me, but it still feels more like March to me....

Edgartown: Little bits of normalcy

The calendar says mid-May. I know it does. But this weather? It has winter written all over it. What is with this wind and chill in the air? It’s got me all mixed up...

Edgartown: What a welcome gift

0
Hooray, hooray, the first of May. I’m sitting down to start this week’s column after an incredibly warm and beautiful first day of May. I’ve been duped into believing that sunny mornings meant warm...

Edgartown: Is it just me?

0
I can’t believe April is coming to an end. The past few months have gone by so fast. This spring feels like it has a heaviness to it. Is it just me? I’m not...

Edgartown: I took last week off from work

0
I stared at my computer last night, trying to write a column, until I fell asleep. I’m all off kilter these days. I took last week off from work to rest up, cry, and...

Edgartown: That small-town bond

Thank you to everyone for your kind words about my column last week, and about my dad in general. It’s times like this when living in a small, close-knit community is wonderful. While there...

Edgartown: I miss my daddy

I’m afraid I cannot offer up a typical Edgartown column this week. I have neither the words nor the gumption to write a regular column. If you will indulge me this week, I’d be...

Edgartown: Sunshine will win out

Isn’t it wonderful to see flowers popping up everywhere? Snowdrops and crocuses are flowering all over, and tulips and daffodils are getting ready to pop. And yet tonight, my dearest husband tells me, we...

Edgartown: Why yes, I did take an outside shower today

It’s Sunday, and it's officially spring. Today was a pretty nice day, and my amazingly wonderful and supportive husband, Don, and I spent the day doing some work around Pop’s yard. Then, after a...

Edgartown: I do so hope the pendulum will swing the other way soon

I am sitting down to start this week’s column on March 13. Two years ago it was a Friday, and boy was it a doozy of a Friday the 13th. The world shut down...

Edgartown: It will be so weird

Ahhhhh. The dreaded re-entry to winter on M.V. after a vacation to the beach! I feel quite refreshed, but a little overwhelmed, as I am also returning to work for the mornings, for the...

Edgartown: Congratulations to Warner and her folks

Greetings and happy March. Isn’t it March that comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb, or vice versa? Regardless, it’s March, and our little Island will soon start bustling again...

Edgartown: Congratulations to Addison McDonough

Greetings, and thank you to everyone who has sent kind thoughts and good wishes our way following last week’s article. Pop is doing well, getting stronger each day, and he has bounced back much...

Edgartown: We should all count our blessings

Due to a series of miscommunications and blunders on my part, last week’s column didn’t make the hard copy of the paper and was a little tough to find online. Hopefully, I’ll be getting...
