|THE ARTIST'S BRUSH STROKES|
|SWELLING BUDS OF MOUNTAIN ASH|
The thaw continues, the march towards spring further exemplified by the swelling, furry buds of the mountain ash trees. I am happy to report that Ann Rumsey at What Goes Round, Bayfield’s used bookstore on Second and Manypenny, found a copy of Robert Ruark’s The Old Man and the Boy for me and I am happily immersed in its homilies. My morning at least will be spent doing my duty as chair of the Bayfield Zoning Appeals Board, which is always interesting and challenging.
