Edgartown

Edgartown

Fair, Fireworks, and First Family are the words on everyone's lips as another Island.

Edgartown

So I finally managed to get off the Island this past weekend.

Edgartown

I love August.

Edgartown

We have reached that point in the summer when all meteorological predictions are useless — if they say rain, slap on the sunscreen; if they say "oh, that orange blob on the radar will pass us right by," make sure your windows are securely closed.

Edgartown

I love some of these random cool days we've been having.

Edgartown

Well, lighting a match under you folks certainly worked.

Edgartown

What's new, people? Everyone's getting their summer on and forgetting about Li'l ol' Linley, sitting here at her computer, waiting for news of your goings-on.

Edgartown

Time to fire up those grills and celebrate the land of the free and home of the brave with hot dogs and beach days and fireworks and parades.

Edgartown

Well, the Bruins did it.

Edgartown

Okay, we've got Taste of the Vineyard tonight, the Boogies on a boat this weekend, and Neil Flynn holding down the back bar at Atlantic for the foreseeable future.

Edgartown

Well, summer certainly came overnight.

Edgartown

Was it not just yesterday that I was looking forward to the snow? And now here we are in June.

Edgartown

I went away for the weekend and returned to find the lawn had grown about a foot in my absence.

Edgartown

One week away from Memorial Day weekend, and I feel like I have a forest of oak trees attempting to take root in my lungs.

Edgartown

I hope all you mamas had a nice weekend.

Edgartown

So much to report this week: where do I start? Well, first things first, our bell is back on the Old Whaling Church after being shipped away for repairs.

Edgartown

Town was just hoppin' with people this past Easter weekend.

Edgartown

Where is everybody? Oh, that's right: it's school vacation week.

Edgartown

Finally some good weather! What a beautiful weekend we just had.

Edgartown

I have to tell you all, I believe right now is about the anniversary of my first column, and I'm a little nervous that I will begin repeating myself.
