Mary Wyatt wept yesterday -- tears of joy, this time, instead of tears of despair.The kindness of others simply overwhelmed her and her family, facing the loss of their Northeast Baltimore rowhouse after her husband, Walter, suffered a back injury that rendered him incapable of working.

From the back porch of his Baltimore rowhouse, Daniel Van Allen can look across the alley to a corral and stable where ponies and horses rest after a hard day in the traces of a-rab produce carts. A few chickens and a goat wander into view. "The animals are all quite tame," said Van Allen, who is on the board of the Arabber Preservation Society. "They're used to all the neighborhood kids petting them." Van Allen, a furniture restorer and artist who shares two rowhouses with Spoon Popkin, a painter and seamstress, bought his first home in Sowebo (Southwest Baltimore)

Three of my four sisters telephoned recently to render their decision: We will be using paper plates for Thanksgiving dinner.The invitation list had expanded to 20 this year and they were in no mood to wash the china for a mob that size. Nor was I, so offered no resistance -- though I think they might have welcomed a verbal boxing match. After all, we are entering the season of gatherings. This is another way of saying the family storm clouds are forming fast and ominous.There are a million Maalox moments before a holiday, two million if you really get anxious and micromanage the affair a month in advance.

"It was late in the spring of 1923 and the very popular Anne Arundel County strawberries were running very late. It seemed like the rain would never stop and the sand was being splashed up onto the waiting berries. "Finally, the sun — greeted with mixed emotions — came out in all its glory and beat down on the Maryland hillside. Mixed emotions because now, acres and acres of strawberries would ripen suddenly, needing to be picked, packed, and shipped to Baltimore quickly or the entire spring cash crop would be lost … perhaps a call to a Baltimore agent would yield some help.
