Ocracoke native, Molly Lovejoy, is a sophomore at the University of New Orleans. In case you missed it, our June, 2012 Ocracoke Newsletter is a transcript of Molly's high school valedictory address.
Molly's parents, Dave & Karen, visited Molly a few months ago, and brought back several boxes of beignet mix. I was the lucky recipient of one box. Last Sunday afternoon I decided to fry up a couple of batches of these delicious French donuts.
Of course, I had more than I could eat...so I carried a few to Amy, David & Lachlan; several to cousin Blanche; and some to Karen & Dave. Even so, I ate more than my fair share. But they were definitely "good some," as O'cockers would say!
Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter documents the day telephones came to the island. The article includes
