By Sally Gracie Hurray to the curators, Salyna Gracie and Sarah Jo Lightner, for bringing back Christmas trees to Confluence Gallery’s annual gift show. “Miniatures: It’s the Little Things,” is especially lovely this year. Christmas trees in the main gallery and the gift shop are hung with ornaments made by local artists in glass, wood...

By Sally Gracie Last week a friend had to brake to a sudden stop on Twisp-Winthrop Eastside Road. Not for the black cattle being moved at night — which also happened recently — but for two mule deer “doing the dirty deed,” as my friend politely described it. It’s rutting season, and the deer have abandoned reason. You’re as...

By Sally Gracie One of the photos in last week’s column was misidentified as Jeff Newman when, of course, it was really Phil Woras, who played at the Twisp River Pub with Shakedonia on Halloween. When I asked friends if they had noticed the mistake, they said they took the word of the Methow Valley News to...

By Sally Gracie OK, you guys, stop kvetching about losing Daylight Saving Time and enjoy the lovely mornings that “fall back” has given us. Instead of staying in front of the TV (I was binge-watching five new episodes of “Gotham” — I’m learning all about Cat, Penguin, and the young Bruce Wayne), I pulled on some black...

By Sally Gracie Although the “free deer skinning” sign was not out by Highway 20 when I drove by on Monday, I took a chance and drove into Katie Russell’s place north of Twisp. Turns out that she and her two friends, Rollean and Callie, were there but had so much work they had pulled...

By Sally Gracie The sermon title on the billboard at Friendship Church caught my attention this morning. It was something like “A crisis is an opportunity for change.” Of course. Change can be an “opportunity.” I just wasn’t feeling it today. I haven’t had any crises to live through this summer, and for that I...

By Sally Gracie Did you miss the Harper Lee discussion at the Twisp library? No worries. The Winthrop library will host a discussion of Harper Lee’s books (To Kill a Mockingbird and Go Set a Watchman), and this year’s Columbia River Reads selection The Mockingbird Next Door by Marja Mills, next Wednesday (Oct. 21) at...

By Sally Gracie Sunday afternoon was beautiful, wasn’t it? Basking in the warm sun, Barley the cat was spread beneath the invasion of mulleins growing at the back of the yard. My neighbor was tossing logs for the wood stove from the back of his pickup. And my pots of summer annuals were finally blazing...

By Sally Gracie Elva Scott was my first Twisp pal, my Canyon Street neighbor when I moved to the valley in 1999. She and her husband, Ed Dunkin (she took back her maiden name after Ed’s death), became my fast friends. When I’d call on the phone, Ed called out to Elva, “It’s Sally down-the-street.”...

By Sally Gracie Barri Bernier told me that “it was Garth’s idea to buy it.” Garth Mudge (the Winthrop glassblower) will accept the rap, but Barri is the most passionate of the two about their new property, which they purchased with an inheritance from a relative. The couple bought a tree! With a plot of...
