Our good friend Jim spent this past weekend with us, as did my brother and his friend Jamie. Jim came from Manteo, and Bud & Jamie drove down from Chesapeake, so I suppose you could say they each were on a short wydge or woidge.
Some years ago it was typical for some O'cockers to replace initial Vs with Ws. "Village" became "willage," "visitor" became "wisitor," and "voyage" became "woyage" (or "wydge," ...typically pronounced "woidge").
Now everyone has returned home, and it's time to catch up on life's details after an exciting weekend of family, friends, music, and good times.
