  • Generally when my friend Tara and I get together food is both talked about and consumed.

    I taught her my secret to amazing stir-fry vegetables (season them with onion powder and dried red chili flakes), and she introduced me to pad thai and satay at a Thai restaurant.

    Last Saturday, to celebrate her birthday, she and I and our husbands went to a seafood, prime rib and sushi buffet where we, as always, both talked about and consumed incredibly delicious food.

  • Betty Hatter sent an email about the Anderson All-star photo on last week’s Way page. She had two sons in the photo, Jacky Hatter and Robby Hatter, the batboy. She said she remembered this “season in our life” really well and the good times with good friends.

    Kenneth DeWitt was something else. A barrel of fun, with an emphasis on barrel, Hatter said. (Explanation later.) Those were the days when CB radios were really popular. Some of the local guys belonged to a CB radio club called “Uncle Charlie Rejects,” according to the email.
