From the publisher's desk: It takes more than weather to make a place perfect

On this night of the warmest day of the year, it’s hard to keep my mind focused on writing a column. The sunset over my left shoulder is such a distraction. As I stare out the window at that bright orange glow, I think I must be living in the best place in the world.

The weather today has been as close to perfect as I could wish for. If only we had more of these days! But if we did we’d never find a stretch of beach to walk the dogs or enough unbroken sand dollars to fill the basket in the guest room. If our weather were like this all the time, Del Norte County would be so crowded with people and congested with traffic that we’d never be able to hear the foghorn.

I have to disagree with the woman who finds the foghorn noise offensive. It’s one of the reasons I choose to live near the ocean. I love the soundtrack of foghorns and buoy bells. At my last home in Brookings I had to really strain to hear the foghorn. Where we live now the foghorn sometimes is drowned out by the barking of the sea lions.

On this balmy evening as I try to concentrate on writing this column I keep thinking about things that bug me like someone complaining about the foghorn. Here’s another one: Three women, all of them younger than me, called me “Hon” last Saturday. “Hon!” Where did that come from?
