49F Day, Party for Dan, and Some CM news

After unloading at Unisea the Cornelia Marie headed to The Delta Western Fuel Dock to fuel up before heading back out to Fish. (They Are hoping to get out before midnight tonight so they do not have to wait till Saturday). 800,000 lbs to go...... On My First Trip to the Grocery store today (Bad Veda, making Phil upset and needing a card and chocolate to cheer him up..) Alexander decided to follow me.
"Swan Nets" is currently repairing some of the Pollock nets and has them stretched out all over the upper portion of the block between the Hotel and the Grocery Store. Alexander followed me all the way over and back. (Don't worry, he got plenty of treats to reward him.) Isn't he growing up nicely?
Yesterday, While the rest of Alaska was dealing with a blizzard watch and record snow amounts, In Dutch it hit 49F and All the snow melted leading to a beautiful, but muddy day.

AND Finally Dan Left today for his treck to Sweden. To cross the Arctic Circle in Feb, In Sweden. I organized a suprise party yesterday,, and for once I was able to pull it off without him finding out till the singinng started!!

Got You Dan.

And Finally, KATHERINE!!! She have that baby yet? Melissa and I both need some help with our Natural "highlights"!!!

Really, At this point, I suggest the "waking her each morning by screaming" approach again.

Have a great night everyone!!

Great shots! Glad the CM's doing well. It's really cool to follow Alexander through his life. :) I hope Dan has a great time on his trek! I've been reading his blog to see what all he's going to be up to over there. Oh, and I'm all about that cake. :)
