Yes, that is right, for the first time this year they are predicting snow at our Sea Level Altitude. It certainly feels cold enough out there today!!
All the Boats are doing fine, with Slow to medium fishing. Most of them will be delivering to Saint Paul Island first, then they will finish up on trips to Dutch Harbor/Unalaska and Akutan. Hopefully I will be able to "Follow That Crab" again this year at one of the processing plants.

To see the Processing of Cornelia Marie crab up close!!!
So Anyhoo, while I was out on Dan's boat the other day I took Care of a Little Housekeeping "Errand" I had been meaning to do...........(hey, it's ME, You know there is always a method to my Madness)
This is my Name badge from the Hilton Hotels. I had worked for that Corporation for a good number of years before I took on this challange. I was told that If I ever wanted to come back just bring my name badge to the nearest Hilton and I would have a job in a snap.
Now, Don't get me wrong, Hilton is the Best Hotel Company in the World, I loved my time there and I always try to stay at Hilton Properties if possible. However I do not want "That" life anymore. I Love this little island and the people on it.
I love taking a little boat ride and seeing Whales, Seals, Otters and Eagles.
I love Little Priest Rock!
And though it may seem funny for a boy who grew up in the mountains of PA, I Love Boats and the Ocean. Even Little boats!
Did I mention I love Eagles?
And I love my almost nightly walk around or up Bunker Hill. This job give me more satisfaction than I ever thought possible, This town gives me Great people to be even Better friends. And my Company pays me enough, and give me wnough vacation time that I can take great trips Home or to Europe not just once in a lifetime but twice a year.
September 29th, 2008 at 12:15pm is when I first set foot on this Island. October 29th, 2008 at 5:15pm is when I moved here. Ask ANYONE on this island and they can tell you when they first got here too. That is how Special this place is. I wish you could all experience it just once, the way we get to every day.
Have a Great one Everybody!!!
