Case Dismissed!

on
Let’s hear it for Officer Mike! Quick review:  Officer Mike was the one who gave Kemba/Kelly the off-leash ticket back on July 12.  When he and I walked to the sign at the public entrance, he saw that Kemba had every right to be on that beach at that time.  He said, “You’re absolutely right.

Happy Birthday Dear Kemba . .

on
No, I didn’t forget to post on Kemba’s birthday Thursday.  My laptop got sunstroke or something out here at the beach, and has been spending the last few days at The Computer Shop on Main Street in Amagansett.  Since then, I’ve learned from Suzanne, my social media guru, that I could have actually posted from someone else’s […] [Read More]

Friends of Kemba, Unite!

on
Two weeks ago, in his Roof Rack Report, Ricky exhorted everyone to stand up for Kemba’s “Freedom of Beach.”  Two weeks from now, Kemba has his day in court (see photo, bottom).  While I vowed in my last post that I’d fight this $100 ticket to the end, even if it cost me $1,000 in […] [Read More]

Stand Up For Kemba’s First Amendment Rights: Freedom of Beach!

on
As Beagle Man promised at the end of his last post, he drove over to East Hampton Town Justice Court on Friday, hoping to finally resolve Kemba’s little legal snafu over being off-leash at the beach.  No such luck.  Instead, he got a 12 noon August  24 court date!  And poor Kelly (remember, it’s actually […] [Read More]

The State of New York vs. Kemba the Duck Dog

on
On Sunday, July 12, Kemba was arrested.  Well, actually, Kelly was arrested.  Well, not really arrested.  She got a ticket. So here’s what happened.  On a beautiful, peaceful, sunny Sunday afternoon, my daughter-in-law — I like saying that — came up to the house from the beach with Kemba, looking for her driver’s license.  “We […] [Read More]

The Odd Couple

on
So  by now you know I really like Kemba; we’ve established that.  He’s cool, and he’s got a lot of heart — like some other dog who used to hang out with the Beagle Man.  But he’s almost 11 months old, and he’s still a little, I don’t know . . . foolish?  B-Man has […] [Read More]

The Waiting

on
Beagle Man takes me to the dog park.  He takes me to the beach and launches balls into the ocean with the chuckit for hours.  He takes me on all his errands — Walgreen’s, the dry cleaners, Pet Supplies Plus, Staples.  He takes me when he goes out to dinner, though I usually have to […] [Read More]

Sharing

on
Sharing is over-rated.  I’ve always said it.  Most guys I know feel the same way.  (I do think this is one of those male/female divides.)  I’m talking about sharing food, for the most part.  I’ll order a medium-sized cup of home-made soft ice cream at Bostwick’s, let’s say.  Carol will undoubtedly ask for a taste.  […] [Read More]
