It’s a wonder we stay afloat

Service in the armed forces is as much a part of life in this small town as any other

Being with the kids reminded me of the Riddle of the Sphinx

Some ground rules for the summer

“I certainly am lucky”

My trips from the office or home base add up to real money

It’s hard not to feel at least a little envious in a place where so many people have exquisite and expansive private gardens.

“Have you written your thank-you notes yet?”

Nothing affects the gardening mettle more than being on view
Lilacs, already . . . Durell Godfrey

Violence and grace . . . truth and beauty. . . . They make such sports nuts of us all
