Edgartown: What a welcome gift

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?

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

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...

Edgartown: I’m grateful to still have him around

Did you miss me last week? It was a rough week and I just could not bring myself to write a column. You see, my father had a bad fall and has been having...

Edgartown: It’s all in what we make of it

January is beginning to fade, as we enter the last few days of the month and head into February, the longest shortest month of the year. I kid, of course. I’m actually making an...

Edgartown: Boy, do I miss them

0
Is it just me, or has January 2022 been a wee bit of a rough start? I try to look for the silver linings, but they seem to be very adept at hiding these...

Edgartown: Keeping my sanity

I always lull myself into a false sense of security that January is a slow month. And it would be if I didn’t still do some bookkeeping work on the side. I slowly stroll...

Edgartown: You are amazing

Happy New Year! 2022 is upon us. It doesn’t seem possible “Y2K” — the change from 1999 to 2000 that had us all on edge that the whole world would crash when our computers...

Edgartown: The lighter side of life

Christmas Day has come and gone. I have to be honest. This year wasn’t overly smooth. The kids are now adults with their own plans and ideas. We’re juggling many homes and visits and...

Edgartown: Hopefully, we’ll all make it through OK

Every year I think that this will be the Christmas season that I’m organized and on top of everything — baking, gift buying, decorating. Apparently, I’m still wrong about that. I’ve bought some gifts,...

Edgartown: It is clearly worth it

The rainy weather certainly didn’t dampen any spirits for Christmas in Edgartown. Thankfully, warmer temperatures accompanied the rain on Saturday so people were still out and about to enjoy the various festivities on Saturday,...
