One Week Late Post....voting, Native Tacos, Salmonberries and Salmon!

This post is a week late in coming so apologies! Dan is on Vacation and so On top of a hotel full to bursting, I have a few more responsibilities. Busy Busy week that has not left much time to have any fun with CD, AG and the Gang. Still, There were a few nice days this week. And How many people get to exercise out most fundamental right, The right to Vote, at a place with a view like this?
So on Tuesday I gathered up a group of Hotel workers and headed off to City Hall to Vote.

Yes, Even here on the very edge of the Bering Sea, Democracy Marches on.

And CD, who was there to volunteer.
In the good news category, God And Saint Michael the Archangel Came through for me again. The Results of the Blood Test on the Person who's needle I got stuck with came back clean. So Bye Bye Anti-Virals and Hello Good Night's Sleep!
