Razor clam diggers can rejoice and be thankful. Eight digs are scheduled from November 30 through December 7 on harbor beaches. Then there’s another eight days of tentatively scheduled digs starting December 14. Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Coastal Shellfish Manager Dan Ayres chatted with the Herald while walking his dog Sunday afternoon.

It’s hard to believe that it’s Thanksgiving already. Jeez, where did the summer go? And autumn disappeared in the blink of an eye. On that note, did we even have fall? It felt like one day it was warm, and everyone was in shorts complaining about droughts, and then it was cold and rainy. There wasn’t even much in the way of fall colors. Such is Washington weather, I suppose.
Even so, I’m very much looking forward to Thanksgiving this year. I’m eating at a friend’s place, so I don’t have to even cook that much. After some of the holidays I’ve had in recent years, that sounds just like heaven. Oh, well. On with the show…
