..........And the Fish are literally Choking Illiuluk Creek.
V So Last night CD Convinced us to go Blueberry picking. "It's just right up the Valley from my House".
She even Enlisted Bella, the Berry Hound to go.
Little did we know at the time that soon we would be clinging to the sides of ravines.........
.........battling cold biting winds..............
...........and being forced by a cruel taskmaster to get more berries!
As She stood above and "Managed" Poor CB, Manderzz and Alicia were forced into precarious positions all for the "Precious" Blueberries!
Poor Dear Manderzz was even forced to do this in shorts and with no supper!
"Sitting on the Cold Hard Ground and starving" was just one of Dear Sweet Manderzz Complaints as CD's Berry Obsession took hold.
Bella abandoned looking for Blueberries and instead went after the last of the Salmonberies.
It was at this time that Alicia noticed her phone was gone. After searching for over half an hour in the biting wind.............
..........with even Bella joining in..................
........I Called out the Big guns with a Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel and Saint Jude, the Patron Saint of Lost Causes.
And Within 5 minutes the phone was located.
So Thank You Saint Michael The Archangel and Saint Jude!!
O glorious Apostle St. Jude, true relative of Jesus and Mary, I salute you through the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Through this Heart, I praise and thank God for all the graces He has bestowed upon you. Humbly prostrate before you, I implore you through this Heart to look down upon me with compassion. Despise not my poor prayer and let not my trust be in vain. To you has been assigned the privilege of aiding mankind in the most desperate cases. Oh, come to my aid that I may praise the mercies of God. All my life I will be grateful to you and will be your faithful client until I can thank you in heaven. Amen.
