Showered with sunshine.

August in Anchorage. How delightful. Seventy-plus degree temps. Wow. Got to share anniversary 52–thanks to gift certificate from Pam’s brother and sis-in-law–to Seven Glacier Restaurant in Girdwood/Alyeska ski area. Awesome. Highly recommend the view and the grub.


Picked up a hard copy proof yesterday of Trapped!, our Alaska romance novel about a pilot who takes a debutante on a flight that ends "part way." Will proof and prepare for e-book and probable publication. I removed the Teflon Chameleon (from original 1997) and replaced with competent "voter." I continue to work with Orin Seybert, founder of Peninsula Air, now going into sixth decade–oldest family owned, ongoing airline in the world. Orin (80 yrs. old) and I are editing the "final" version pre-publication. I am also completing SAFE with Bears, a volume dedicated to saving lives "out there."


Another glorious week in Alaska…more rain, more grass to mow and transport to a garden compost. Busy meeting folks, providing books, pursuing signage for our biz vehicle. Hope your week was great.

from heat to wet

July was the hottest month in Alaska history with a 62-plus average daily temp. August followed with some great news in the form of liquid sunshine. Yesterday Aug. 8 set a record for rainfall with over an inch in Anchorage. It was wet. I helped granddaughter Sarah unload her pickup of hay, spreading a tarp over her horse trailer and pickup bed. Glad I did because after twenty minutes I was no longer dry but a sponge.
