TEEING OFF: Dealing with a loss
Most years, the start of the National Football League season is a joyous occasion at the Clarkston house. Not this year. I woke up Thursday morning to find that one of the three ferrets that reside in a mansion-like cage inside the apartment had died. It’s not exactly what I wanted to deal with on the first day of my bachelor life. The mom of the house left for a two-week trip to Pennsylvania the day before. I bro...

Not very good advertising, I thought. We try everything in the church but directly inviting a friend. Or Episcopalians do, anyway.

I remember one of my first summers in Kodiak when I wondered if it would ever stop raining and seriously considered growing gills to survive in this climate. After this year’s...
