  • Over the past couple of weeks I have had a half dozen people come up to me with stories of amazing vegetables appearing in their yards and gardens.  
    My mother, for one, has what she calls a French squash growing by the sidewalk around a newly planted serviceberry.  
    I don’t think it is the same French squash served up in a fancy restaurant but the fruit does have the small round shape that many of the gourmet squashes possess.

  • I know for me as a young girl in middle school and high school, I tried to find my comfort in things and people.

    BOYERS CHAPEL

  • Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy is on vacation this week. Her husband requested this column from 2004 about his 1968 Ford Falcon station wagon be rerun. He still misses that car. Nancy doesn’t.

    Although a brand new Ford F-150 “Lightning” pickup truck tops my husband’s list of dream vehicles, his eyes still mist whenever anyone mentions ‘the limo.”

  • It was late summer in 2005 when I experienced nighthawks for the first time.  In fact, it was the only time I had seen them peppering the sky until last weekend.  
    On both occasions it was late afternoon, but this year the sky was bright so we watched the nighthawks against a clear blue back ground as they moved about.  
    Since I had seen and identified the nighthawks back in 2005, I knew immediately what was in the sky as more then  two dozen birds soared about in mesmerizing configurations.
