Two sets of photos!

Yesterday, I did a ton of fun things! I took a ride out to the end of the Knik Goose Bay Road. There isn't anything but a private airport out there. I was disappointed. I thought there would be this beautiful view or something. There wasn't. Just trees. There are a bunch of trees here. Lots of birch trees. Actually the birch trees are pretty, but it's like in Ireland... You start getting tired of ruins in Ireland, in Alaska you start getting tired of trees. I found this boat out in … [Read more...]

Musk Ox Farm

On Monday I went to the Musk Ox Farm in Palmer. Apparently the Musk Ox had been hunted into extinction, and they brought in new Musk Oxen in the 1930's from Greenland. The Musk Ox farm in Palmer has 150 some odd Musk Ox. It is a really nice little farm. They had babies, and some adult males that weighed over 1000 pounds. At the Musk Ox Farm, I purchased some Qiviut. I bought 2 oz. of yarn. I know, that's not a lot of yarn. It was so pricey. $88. But, when am I ever going to see it … [Read more...]

Mt. McKinley, by air!

Yesterday Mom and I went out to Talkeetna. Apparently, it is the base camp for all the people who want to go and climb Mt. McKinley. Ok, so mom can't climb Mt. McKinley, and I'm not going to climb it without her. So we walked around the town. It was a really quaint little town. Lots of Alaskan products. I bought the GNO girls some roses made out of rabbit fur. You know, there is a lot of fur to be purchased in Alaska. Not really sure how I feel about that. Anyway, in the morning, it was … [Read more...]

I saw many mountains today!

I took this picture today while waiting for my mom to pick me up so I could go to the store. It's the view from our hotel. Isn't it lovely? This is what we had for dessert tonight. It's it lovely? even better it tasted great! … [Read more...]


I woke up in Alaska this morning. Without my luggage. Alaska Airlines sent the bag they forced me to check to Spokane rather than Anchorage. Yeah, I'm a happy camper. But it's lovely here. Absolutely lovely. Unfortunately, the digital camera card reader was in the bag they forced me to check. So, I can't show you how pretty it is... Yet. Hopefully, I will have my bag just after 1:00 today. If not, there is a Nordstrom (apparently there is no Target) in Anchorage. I'll just buy new … [Read more...]

i’m just blank

You know... I checked my site today, and it's blank. Can you believe it? I can. That is exactally how I feel. That isn't to say that there isn't stuff going on. There is. My house closes next Wednesday, the 19th. The house we purchased last week closes on the 26th. I have 3 weeks from the time I close to move into my new house. I got pulled over for a DUI. Yes, I know. I don't drink. I got pulled over anyway. The officer didn't smell anything and let me go. I thought it was funny … [Read more...]

DisneyLand - The Happiest Place on Earth! - part three

As far as days go, Friday was the best day. I felt like crap, couldn't speak well, but I felt more relaxed. Maybe it was because Stephens mom had gone back to Bakersfield. Who knows. We started the day with breakfast at the Carnation Cafe on Main Street. I had Pecan Pancakes. Boy howdy were they good. We then went over to California Adventure. You know, I really like that park. When I'm feeling well. First we went to get fast passes for Tower of Terror. I thought that would be best. … [Read more...]
