Edgartown

Hey, everybody. Sorry I missed you last week. I was laid up by that old pinched nerve, and just couldn’t sit at the computer. I’ve got to tell you, when you make your living...

Edgartown: It hasn’t really sunk in for me yet

I’m feeling remarkably out of touch with the world at the moment, making this a challenging column to write. I’ve been laid up with a pinched nerve. I’ve got to say, I never knew...

Edgartown: Recycle your electronics

I have to say that it sure was fun to attend the pop-up screening of “A Beautiful Place to Die” on Sunday night. A small group of family, friends, and fans gathered in the...

Edgartown: The rapid passage of time

Happy New Year. I don’t know about you, but I cannot believe that it was 20 years ago that we were all worried about what our computers were going to do during the Y2K...

Edgartown

Sorry about not showing up last week. Miscommunication in the digital age at its best. My mind was elsewhere, and though I wrote the column, I didn’t get it to them in time. So...

Edgartown: I feel a bit frantic

Is it just me, or are other people thrown off by the later-than-normal Thanksgiving this year? I’ve got the house decorated, and we put our tree up last night. But I’ve not done any...

Edgartown: Happy December, everyone

Happy December, everyone. I’m still trying to figure out where November went. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, whether you were with family or friends, or in some cases, stuck off-Island because...

Edgartown: Full bellies, and even fuller hearts.

Holiday weeks are rough ones when it comes to column writing. No sooner do I submit one when the early deadline for the holiday week pops up. I’m just not eloquent enough to come...

Edgartown: Dine to Donate this Saturday

Is anyone besides me shocked that we are in the third week of November? Somehow, Thanksgiving is next week. I reckon it’s about time for us to make some sort of a plan for...

Edgartown: I’m sure you’ll all have stories to tell

I hope everyone had a lovely long weekend. The weather on Monday was certainly wonderful. I even caught a few glimpses of a chilly swimmer or two on Facebook this evening. I was traveling...

Edgartown: Winter can’t be far behind

Oh, the dark and the cold are setting in. We’ve changed the clocks, a silly habit that I still don’t understand, and winter can’t be far behind. Our household is having a little trouble...

Edgartown: Short news week this week

I’m starting this week’s column from scenic Medina, Ohio, outside of Cleveland. Riley and I came out to visit my brother and his family, and hit a few of the main attractions here. Specifically,...

Edgartown: Howdy, neighbors!

It seems like forever ago now, but how about that no-name bomb cyclone storm last week, huh? I’ve experienced hurricanes that were less scary. That was crazy. Sad to say, a tree fell on...

Edgartown: The Hunter’s Moon

I realized tonight as I was driving home along State Beach that I’ve been caught up in my own head, and not paying attention lately. Trying to stay on top of my busy schedule...

Edgartown: The heat is on

I have a rule in my house. It goes back many, many years. The heat doesn’t come on until Nov. 1. Well, I’m writing this on Saturday, Oct. 5, and it was a cold...

Edgartown: Playing tourist

I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend. I played tourist on Saturday with my college roommate. It was the first time we’ve gotten together in 27 years. Yikes. Time flies, and our kids are now...

Edgartown: Another summer weekend in September

Another summer weekend in September, to mark the official end of summer and the start of fall. Temperatures in the 70s. Bright sunshine. Decent water temperature. You know what that means? Yup. I spent...

Edgartown: One of those bonus days

Well, Sunday was one of those bonus days that we sometimes get in September, that’s for sure. Temperatures in the 70s, bright sunshine, gentle breeze. The beach looked like it could have been a...

Edgartown: School days

School is open, and it’s like we haven’t missed a beat. Or so it seems. Every year takes a little getting used to, but for the most part, students and teachers have fallen into...

Edgartown: A collective sigh

Ah, Labor Day. I think I heard the Island community take a collective sigh tonight, as our little spit of sand rose up a few more feet above sea level as our summer visitors...
