I just spent an enjoyable time with The Thursday Ladies at Harborside Coffee and Goods, getting caught up on important events in town — wondering who has taken awhile to grow up and where grandkids have ended up this summer. These are wise women who have seen a lot of changes, lost much and kept their senses of humor. My kind of people. The matriarch of the group, possibly the matriarch of Kodiak, is Margaret Hall...
