Book Review: WWII spy yarn has local angle

On a bluff overlooking the Hazel River, a couple of miles below its confluence with the Hughes, sits Longlea. In the figurative middle of nowhere, just across the Rappahanock line in Culpeper County, this grand manor house on a large estate is a witness to some of the most tantalizing happenings in 20th century history.

Washington: Compliment earns one in return

On my daily walks through town each week, I pass by the Inn at Little Washington and I see these two awesome ladies, Sharon Starr and Linda Cole, working away, Starr cleaning on the outside of the Gift Shop and the Norman House and Cole sweeping off the front entrance of The Inn. Last Wednesday, I took the time to stop and tell Starr what a great job she was doing.

RAWL Dogs: Buddy

If I am outside when you drive up to the shelter here in Amissville, you will hear me. My bass voice – rather musical, if I may say so – will ring out as you approach. In truth, it makes me sound bigger than I really am. This sound of greeting, or warning, will go well at your place, especially at night, should intruders on four feet or two feet venture near.

My name is Buddy. There’s Shepherd and Great Dane in my DNA. I’m only a year and a half old, and in my short time here I’ve learned what a leash is for, and how we use it together. […]
