WHY? It all started on Martha's Vineyard. I was hosting. It was 6:00pm, and the bird still wasn't ready. Outrage / hunger / bewilderment amongst family members. (Like, get your shit together, Bonni!!)

THEN ... there's the part where one guest inhaled a turkey giblet, and we ran him to the emergency room.  SHARE MY ANGST!!!

Dear Ebie, we will miss you so . . .

We are saddened to report the passing of dear Ebie Wood. I interviewed her and her beloved Rich in Pound Ridge Past ("Into the Woods," page 78). I loved that they met in second grade at Pound Ridge Elementary School in 1945. A true love story.

Ebie was gracious, worldly, and kind-hearted. We had a mutual love for Pound Ridge and Martha's Vineyard, where she had a home in Cottage City, and we had one in Chilmark. And what a storyteller! Ebie was a walking history book and always told stories about Pound Ridge with sincere passion.

Our most heartfelt condolences to Rich and the family and to all who knew and loved Ebie.
