Merry Christmas

I received a subscription to Biblical Archaeology Magazine last year for Christmas. I knew it was mine, because it said, “to Hank’s Wife.” I knew from whom it came because it said, “to Hank’s Wife.” The brother of my Significant One has a pet name for me when he’s calling up the stairs

Roxanne Murphy

At last Saturday’s two-year anniversary party at the Tempest Lounge, all eyes softened when they saw Roxanne Murphy, the PR bitty from the city, in this sweet Chinese dress. She calls this look “Asian up the Indian” (her mother’s side of the family is from the Nooksack Tribe just outside of

Thanksgiving in a bar

Just like the rest of the peeps in the United States, I have some things to be thankful for: My family, friends, a cozy home, and the fact that it’s snowing in the mountains. But one of the things that I appreciate the most out of life is something that’s not quite
