Dear Bay Weekly:

In Running into Trouble [Sept. 16: bayweekly.com/articles/features/article/running-trouble] Katie Dodd did a stellar article capturing the agony and ecstasy of running the Annapolis 10-miler. I’m a writer, but I felt like a runner when I read her story

Crossing the languid Patuxent River south on Hill’s Bridge has always meant trading the frenzied world of the metro area for farm and forest. Rolling through southern Anne Arundel into Calvert County brings an involuntary sigh of relief as clouds give way to sunsets under tranquil skies.

Three of our [tagged] birds are moving. Actually four if we include Buck, our South Carolina young from ’09, who surprised us by moving his bivouac down in Venezuela.

Dear Bay Weekly:

We loved the pets issue of Bay Weekly [Aug. 26]. Having six cats and a German shepherd, we had to take turns reading the stories.

The Bay Gardener’s Maine coon cat sounds like a real character … sort of like pets and humans resembling one another. Three of my six are also Maine coons. You’ll see two of them in the enclosed photos of our cats.
