Back in Alaska

On the way back to the island we stopped off in Anchorage to visit with Goldfish's family for a few days. Split between Anchorage and Palmer (about 35 miles apart), her parents, brother and sisters are all wonderful and we enjoyed every minute of our stay - they are an incredibly close-knit bunch and we love them dearly.

I saw a few moose - I sure miss large mammals out here where the biggest thing moving besides the wild horses are foxes - just not as cool as moose, caribou and bears.

Hi Steve! Happy to hear you are back in AK safe and sound! I never did get to see your house (in person that is)....I had Elaine leave something for you and GF...hope you like it :)

Happy New Year to you and yours.

Lauri, we love the plant! We have a nice spot for it in the dining room area, it seems pretty happy!

Oh good, Steve! I was hoping I could find it a good home, and couldn't think of a better one than yours! :)

I love the moose shot...I wish we had large mammals here too! It'd be a lot cheaper for T to go hunting :)
