A super chocolate suggestion

People were busy enjoying a sunny Super Chocoholic Sundae Sunday at Westport Winery this past weekend. The inagural event brought people out to Markham to sample chocolate, make ice cream sundaes, play oreo checkers, watch glass blowing, sample wine and listen to live music.

It’s Hawku week

Get your blue and green on! We all know what week it is - especially if you happen to live in Hawkuiam. You have to appreciate the spirit Jack Durney, mayor of Hoquiam — excuse me, that is, Hawkuiam this week — for his town spirit. In our neck of the wooded Washington state, colors are flying over both harbors and spirits are high. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know well that the home team is once again in the championship.

Woman loves boyfriend, not son

Dear Abby: I am in a great relationship with a wonderful man, “Kevin.” He loves me very much and we get along well. I have three kids — two with special needs — and Kevin loves them and treats them like his own. He also has a son, age 6, who has cystic fibrosis.

Husband hopes wife is willing to spice up their love life

Dear Abby: My wife and I have been married for quite a while, and our intimate life became monotonous and unimaginative a long time ago. Over the years I have suggested we try things like role-playing and other non-extreme variations during intimate times. My suggestions were met with rolling eyes and retorts like, “I’m your wife, not a hooker.” I finally gave up and try to be content with what we have together.
