Thank goodness, it's Friday! Firstly, I must apologize for Thursday's greeting, as I began it with "Happy Wednesday!" I suppose my Wednesday must've been happy, if I tried to celebrate it twice. Maybe all my days from now on will be only Wednesdays, like an episode from the "The Twilight Zone." No biggie, as long as I get to take an occasional Wednesday off.
Meanwhile, closer to the now: A cute little coyote pup, which was rescued recently by a state trooper in Revere, now is rehabilitating in the Berkshires. It'll eventually be returned to the wild.
In cannabis news, a twofer: The first retail site in Adams likely will open before the year is out, and, in Lee, a dispensary next door to the Massachusetts Turnpike is contending with a delay in its opening.
A fire that destroyed a home on Swamp Road in West Stockbridge has been ruled accidental.
A cyclist in Pittsfield was injured when he collided with a Berkshire Regional Transportation Authority shuttle bus.
Also in Pittsfield, the city's highway chief is on leave, but City Hall is mum on the reason why.
And the terrace at The Mount, Edith Wharton's gilded home in Lenox, is the beneficiary of a $760,000 renovation, which will leave the mansion in tip-top shape for the upcoming tourist season.
