Niagara Gazette — Fahim and friends at Island Ship Center, who seem to drop every project to help us with trivial reprints. Only you, Santa, exceed their delivery skills.
Tops Markets. Years ago, when Polly sent Doug up here, she’d better have a big reward ready when he returned. Something has changed the whole culture here. Almost everybody, from the managers to the industrious cart-retriever, seems willing to at least try to help. Doug’s favorite moment: In mid-July, watching a young woman not even sufficiently clad for the beach, while the cashier, in the all-encompassing garb of the Middle East, processed her without a twitch of the burka. Oh, yes, Santa, we did recently check out 21 items in the 15-and-under line. We’d have done the same for you.
And ... Kathy, anyone who gives her a ride in the rain, Carlo the beauty baron, both people who recently returned Doug’s wallet, Phyllis Lange just for being there, Dana the traveling cat-clipper, the two joyfully noisy little girls next door who make us feel younger, critics with the conviction to sign their names and Old Soldier Herm Roberts, as good a neighbor as this world as ever known.
Come visit. Bring whatever.
