Fondness

One of the neatest experiences in my life was being lucky enough to have one of my best friends tattoo me in honor of one of my favorite people. When I lived in my BattleWagon, I got a tattoo of a rose and fudge stripe cookies. My friend Monkey designed and tattooed it himself. Rose was my grandmother's name, and she always had fudge stripe cookies at her house.

The other day, I was in the store, and I saw a pack of the cookies. I snagged a quick picture and thought of all the good times. We're lucky to have the people we do in our lives. It's good to see that sometimes.


Alaskan Summer Evenings

After a beautiful, sunny day, I came home to a sleeping toddler. I'm still recovering from a cold, and the wind and clouds picked up, so I got comfy with the tyke and popped in The Empire Strikes Back, and enjoyed a quiet evening. I still have this view out the window, so it's not a loss by any means...


A Slice of Heaven in the Morning

This is the way to start a morning in Alaska... or anywhere else, I suppose.

A Random Update

Alaska has been good to us so far, even though I haven't had the means with which to explore as often as I would like. I understand those things are in my future, and like anyone else, I'm patiently waiting and working hard to get those means. It looks like September will bring a road trip through five states and international waters. I'm excited for stops in Moab, Utah and pretty much every hole in the wall done we see on the way.

It's been cool here. Rainy, foggy, amazing. I hear horror stories of friends in Colorado just melting in the 100° heat. I'm happy here.
