Let’s get ready for Sonoma County’s “shortest parade” right here in Bodega. It starts at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday August 19th. If you want to participate in the parade, please visit bodegafire.org and apply for a (float) spot or to be a craft vendor. If simply attending, be prepared for flying sweet morsels.

I hope we all enjoyed celebrating our mothers last month. Before honoring our fathers in mid-June, I want to join in the celebration of Mama Evelyn Casini, owner of the Casino Bar and Grill for 69 years, since July 1, 1949. Evelyn took over the bar only ten years after it began.

What a lovely spring we’re having, perfect balance of sunshine and water. May Day is International Workers’ Day and includes the tradition of the Germanic pagan fertility ritual of the May Pole. This year it’s also when the west county community is gathering to celebrate the life of Bill (William) Wheeler at what he called “Sheep Ridge,” where I remember celebrating May Day when I was a child.

Mid-winter brings fields of lush green grass. This poses the prefect landscape for lovely sheep and their fresh little ones to roam about. I’m lucky enough to live next-door to a lamb farm, so I get to hear all their unique cries to each other. It’s constant amusement. My curiosity peaked and I decided to talk to a local professional.

I love Bodega. I’ve been in West Sonoma County my entire life, my mother and uncles were also raised here, and my Grandparents landed here back in 1969.
