Fall from grace

The Vidette Cat is now here

I couldn’t leave it there.  Have you seen what they eat down there?   They don’t even have a catbox.   Yes the cat that the whole community is trying to help is in the Montesano Today office.  The Vidette posted today about her wandering up.  She belongs to someone.

Those stupid phonebooks

How many have you got?  I must have a dozen or more of them.  They sit in a drawer in my kitchen.  Why, I don’t know.  I haven’t opened one since……well…since THE INTERNET CAME ALONG A COUPLE OF DECADES AGO.

Little Timmy

Culture is a funny thing. Although we can’t see or touch it, it truly is the driving force of our little harbor community. As far as describing it, we can’t. We can only reference its results that occur over long periods of time. It sneaks up on us slowly. At first we stop and notice…
