Bombs Away

One of the cool things I found out at the museum yesterday was that the building I live in was hit by a bomb when the Japaneese attacked Unalaska on June 3 and 4, 1942. Goldfish claims she told me this already (and she's right, I can kind of remember) but the map of all the bomb strikes at the museum drove it home for me. Sorry the photos are poor and hard to see, it is the bomb strike at lower left of the map - my building was formerly a Bureau of Indian Affairs Hospital.

Anyways, that's my fun fact for the day. I only worked eight hours again today so I sat on the beach in front of my place and watched the sunrise after breakfast - I feel wonderfully rested and got lots done this evening!

That place was bombed? Man it gets better and better with every blog. Must be a much sought after place. Glad to hear you have been able to get some rest lately. Oh i meant to ask who your dinner guests were, the other day. Friends? The Boss?
Well keep an eye at the sky, right? Oh Bad joke.
Love you Dad

The dinner guests were two friends, Keri and Elaine. Keri is way cool in more ways than I can count - she went to College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine; she ran the Boston Marathon; she has a cool job - the list goes on. Elaine is very cool as well and is the person who picked us up at the airport when I got here with a smile and a pan of lasagna. They are both the best, and are both true "island girls".
