Things were slow and steady for these four young men crabbing at the Port of South Whidbey at Langley dock. From left are Brandon Brown, Jordan Bond, Cameron Brown and Jaeden Bond. The Bond brothers of Everett were visiting the Browns of Langley. In only a couple hours of tossing their ring traps, they had already hauled up three red rock and two Dungeness crabs.  - Ben Watanabe / The Record

Wedgies and dump cakes; former favorites have their day in the sun — again | WHIDBEY RECIPES

I attended two granddaughters’ high school graduation earlier this month, and among the many things I observed about the attire of young women today was what the majority of them were wearing on their feet. Wedgies, very tall wedgies in most cases. I was surprised, to say the least. Wedgies have to be one of the world’s most dangerous shoe styles, with high stacked heels and a narrow base. I know this because I was teetering around on them a few decades ago. Back then, we referred to them as our “ankle breakers.” As I watched the graduating girls totter up the stairs onto the stage and teeter back down after receiving their diplomas, I thought about how many things in the world of fashion are “hot,” then fade only to come back in some form decades later. It occurred to me that the same thing happens in the food world.
