It looks to be a great Day up Dutch Harbor way! I hope this means a good week with none of the dreaded White stuff!
The Sun is shining on our Sunday Brunch, one sadly minus a Junior.
Skyler, Willie, Paul and Rich have made some great looking Salads today to start out with.
Now, My regular camera's batter died while taking pictures so some of these photos are from my I-Phone so sorry about the quality.
Teryaki Pork loin,
And Chicken Chipolte Crepes.
The Snow for the most part is FINALLY melting, though.
And Over by City Hall the other night I noticed a few encouraging signs of life...
In one of the landscape pots near the greening grass by the Council Chambers...
....There are some flowers popping up after a long Winter nap!
In fact Look!! Miss Veda has emerged from her shop and did not see her shadow so that means Spring should be right around the Corner!
Also outside City Hall sits this memorial to the Native Villagers that were removed from the island by the United States Millitary during World War II and placed in Internment camps in South East Alaska. Though I am a strong supporter of the Millitary in most cases, this was a truely Shamefull time in American History, These Villiagers, some of whom I see Every Day and Call Friends, were taken from their homes with a single suitcase and returned after 4 years to their looted and vandalized homes, and an Island damaged and in some cased destroyed by the Millitary.
Lets all just take a moment and say a silent prayer for everyone affected by those terrible times.
The "Other" Post office......
So Yesterday I journied to "The Other Side" In an attempt to chronicle Dan and Darryl's trials to become Volunteer Fire Fighters. Unfortunately, I was not allowed to photograph the trials, so I just stayed and cheered them on. They Passed. Congratulations!!
Then it was on to the Community Yard sale at the PCR Buliding. Above is Theresa who usede to work for the hotel but has since moved on to a City Job.
And Of course Roger and Billie for his Mum!
I actually think everyone.......
...and I mean everyone.....
...was there at some point yesterday.
So this week had started out kinda rough.......
With More wind and snow.
But by midweek it had turned nice enough for a beachwalk with CD, Manderzz, Dylls and Bella!!
The Unbridled Joy that Bella Showed when she Got Her First Perfect Stick was just delightful.
There are VERY few trees on this island, and most of the wood we see is from Broken Pallets which is NOT good for a puppy.
We found a nice piece of Driftwood that was just the perfect size and Shape for Bella Though on this walk.....
....and with a joy that only children and dogs know proceeded to create and entire world of play with this stick.
I need to get a bigger Apartment so I can get a dog!!
Anyay, have a great Sunday Everyone!
