A holiday devoted to being thankful nears, so it is a great time to make an assessment of the past year. Living here on a beautiful peninsula flanked by the Olympic Mountains with the Hood Canal on one side and the Puget Sound on the other, our surroundings give us much to be grateful for.
There seems to be a resurgence of novels about World War II. Some romanticize the era, some tell of the struggles and angst and sorrow of this time in our history, and I have just read a novel about the intrigue and intricacies of the spy networks.
On Thanksgiving, the turkey is the iconic bird of the day. But wild turkeys get a lot of attention any time of the year. They’re one of our biggest birds, and a strutting tom is an impressive sight with his fanned peacock tail, distinctive wattle and bright colors.

It’s part of Ed Carriere’s DNA to be patient. His Suquamish ancestors have been here since the beginning, so a year, 100 years, 1,000 years are mere fragments of time.
It was just one of those times. Young sailors on shore leave, out for a good time in Everett. The next morning, Jay Yeager woke up with a large tattoo scrolled across his back. It read “In Nominee Patris, et Filii et Spiritus Sancti.”
I went to the first author event presentation Sept. 8 at Kitsap Publishing, 1450 NW Finn Hill Road, Poulsbo. Marnie Holt Swenson presented and read from her book, “Migratory Moment.” It’s a book of poems and she says it is written from the perspective of a very young child — before they can really understand anything.
Brownsville is one of Puget Sound’s most secluded and snug harbors — and one of its most charming maritime communities. Tidal changes in Port Orchard Channel stir up nutrients that draw birds, seals and other marine life. Boaters and residents shop at Sweeney’s Country Style Meats or dine and visit at the Brownsville Deli, watch sunrises and sunsets at Burke Bay Overlook Park, or picnic at the pavilion.
My Kingston life began with a high-wire act in 1978 and life has been full of synchronicities since my return. That sense of coming full circle pervades my world.
Bill and Barbara Erickson celebrated their golden wedding anniversary Aug. 20 with a gathering at My Girl Drive-In Museum in Kingston.
The Kitsap Peninsula has long been a draw to people who have crafted unique lives and livelihoods for themselves. Lynne Ferguson is just such a person, and here on the Kitsap Peninsula she has created a life for herself that allows her to pursue two great passions from her childhood: Native horsemanship and music.
Nearly 500 aircraft will descend on Bremerton National Airport for the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association’s West Coast Fly-In on Aug. 19-20.
With the Sami gathering in Poulsbo, it seems fitting to recount the story one of the greatest Sami heroes, Anders [or Andrew] Bahr. No Texas trail drive can begin to compare with the distance and hardships he faced during his epic reindeer drive across the frozen arctic. Bahr is buried in Poulsbo.
There are many, great garden-worthy plants that spread out over a garden. I’ve grown quite a few of them. Then there are the garden thugs — plants that romp around overtaking anything not big enough to stand up to them. I’ve grown too many of those bullies.
For writers, writers’ conferences are a wonderful source of information. Besides meeting fellow writers, you can meet, talk to and present your work to agents, publishers, editors and generally submerge yourself into WRITING.
During the latter part of May, that’s when eagles and herons come out to play. That’s according to Kingston-based nature photographer Bonnie Block, explaining the story behind a photograph she submitted to the 2016 Audubon Photography Awards for consideration.
I’m sorry, folks, but I just have to get this off my feminine chest ...
Donna Lee Anderson says goodbye: Hansville Happenings has been a truly lovely gig. Thank you to all for reading my column all these years, and I hope you’ll continue to follow me in Kitsap Weekly — in the Herald and online.
The movie “The Seeds: Pushin’ Too Hard,” will appear one night only on Saturday, Aug. 13 at the Dragonfly Cinema in Port Orchard.
When I moved to the North Kitsap area, I looked around for resources for writers. Field’s End Writers Community was one of the first names I came across. It was housed at the public library on Bainbridge Island and offered speakers, writing events, and classes.
A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of meeting Elena Hartwell, author of the Eddie Shoes Mystery Series.
Our Libby just graduated from high school. She’s our third, so we’ve done this before. But it wasn’t until this time around that I realized I don’t love it when my kids graduate from high school. In fact, it occurred to me that I’ve been tricked.
Some little known facts about me: I have always been a storyteller.
