It's me..and Heder...we've been posing for 26 years now...hmmm you'd think we'd tire of it --nope!
HB & SB...he found us at the airport, helped with my bags and said goodbye -- I swore I'd be up at 3:30 or 4am to say bye, but Heder and I were up past midnight visiting.

Huge zucchini and rhubarb from their garden to take home with me!
I don't know much about gardening...but that rhubarb looks impressive to me!
Just not right, Anchorage is usually gorgeous in August.
A complete deluge, we hardly ever see rain like this.
I won't even say anything about PenAir...I'm sure they have perfectly legitimate reasons for making me sit around the airport for hours...then taking just 23 passengers and no luggage! Hello!!! Tell me there isn't a chance of me getting out early and let me go home and see my family, maybe do something constructive --or not. But no....they tell me to wait. Then do they even say ANYTHING after the flight goes..NO! I had to go back up to the counter and try to be nice.
So, I didn't get out one flight early to make it to ANC at a decent hour. I left at 4pm got there at 7. Waited in line for over an hour in the Thrifty Car Rental line to be told that there is no longer a car available for me. (I really didn't think trying to go one flight earlier would be such a hassle!) I was over 2 hours late, ANYONE over 2 hours late simply will not get their car. The customer in front of me was on military orders, he was delayed due to weather, they didn't budge. Flights are so RARELY delayed in Alaska, this is a great new rule --NOT! The ever-so bored, but fairly polite agent said to call if I'm goign to be later, not sure if that means call Anchorage or the 800#??
It was raining so hard it was difficult to see while driving, that is weird Anchorage is generally so much nicer than Unalaska...but it was nice on Monday and Tuesday.
I had to have Heder run out to get me, I love Heder, she is so good to me, always! I ate a small portion of caribu steak --told her I don't eat steak. OMG...was it because I was starved or was it just that good?? It was chicken fried and was better than moose...sorry T. Go out to Adak, get some caribu! Her husbad is an amazing cook. I'm going to make some of our moose steak the same way tomorrow --except Dills will have gluten-free flour. The kids are jealous that I had steak made that way...they're definately carnivores (Dills and Manderzz...not Jr. all I see him eat is Life cereal)
