The Carousel of Light and its Legacy - An Endless Supply of Smiles

Rob Hutchinson has a lifetime of Falmouth memories. The Falmouth native, who now lives in Hingham but frequently returns to visit family, fondly remembers days during his childhood when he would get his hair cut at Stone’s Barber Shop back when it was located farther down Main Street, near where Celebrations is now. When Rob would finish his haircut, Phil and Dickie Stone would escort Rob out of the barber shop and help him cross the street on his way home.

Jesus and the Lepers

By Jack Sheedy

I’m home, ill, today. Why else would I be typing a blog on a Tuesday afternoon while the rest of the world is at work.

I caught something. I came down with it on Sunday, was a bit of a mope around the house yesterday (Labor Day – isn’t that nice), and now, today, I’m at home with my dog, Willie, and he’s not quite understanding this disruption in his usual routine. He seems rather put off by my presence, like I’m interfering with some prearranged schedule of doggie events.

Season Change, Brewster Grist Mill & Orange Sherbet Salad

      Well as we start to wind down from the normal season and transition into our second season the weather seems to ramping up again. If you enjoy cooler weather this past season has been your year for experiencing the Cape. Not overly warm, and not overly rainy, some would say just about right. Me on the other hand could have used a few more days in the 80s and a few less cloudy days. I love the beach and I love being out in the sun. So as this second season starts I am hoping that we get more days of full sunshine and less of those cloudy days.
