BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages
(click to see movie trailer)

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Nocturnal Visitor

Each day, in addition to filling the bird feeders, I prepare a tray of seed and peanut butter balls.
I place the tray on a table outside the window by my computer, so I can watch the birdies.
As I type, I'm watching a pair of Carolina Wrens enjoy the treats.

If I forget to bring in the tray at night, I have interesting visitors.

Peter Opposum is trying out a peanut butter ball.

Looks like Peter bit off more than he can swallow.

Does the Heimlich Maneuver work on opposums?

I guess I should put out a glass of milk to help wash it down-chuckle!

Ellie Mae Clampett was my role-model!


My buddy, Wayne Hall, completed the Yukon Quest!!!!

Congrats Wayne and Scarlett!

Now all eyes are on Anchorage...

Be sure to check out this view next Saturday for the Ceremonial Start of the 2009 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.


We were invited to our neighbors' (and dear friends) house this week for an Iditarod Bon Voyage dinner. We had delicious lasagna and Baked Alaska for dessert. How cool is that!?!

They also gave me this beautiful chest.

Thank you from the bottom of my Alaska-Bound heart!

What a cool chest! And what a cute little guy eating your peanut butter - but I'm glad he's on your side of the computer!

You will have a wonderful time in Anchorage! Hopefully you will get there in time to participate in some of the Fur Rendezvous events. My youngest daughter was there this weekend watching the sprint dog races. Buddy Streeper won this year by 9 seconds.

Have a wonderful trip and enjoy our Alaskan weather!
