Get organized with the CableFish cable-winder!
Excess flex and cabling for lights, computers, DVD, TV, office and household equipment can be easily organized with this cable winder.
Wind excess flex around the Cable Fish and fixate the wire in the openings.
The Cable Fish is capable of handling a maximum of 32 in. / 81.28cm of flex or cabling.
Size: 5.5 in. / 14cm long.
I thought these Cable Wraps were not only cute but handy!

My friend with the green thumb flowers still look great. All the pictures I've been taking of her beautiful handiwork this summer I am putting on a cd for her to enjoy this winter.
This is what the sky looked like tonight when we got out of swimming. Clearing up nicely for the full bright moon thats out there right now.
Should get some good pictures of the fall colors tomorrow. They are changing fast. Soon it will be dark when we get out of swimming.

Pictured on the left is the new Whole Wheat Radio Chocolate Lab puppy, Beta. I love the white markings on her chest and paws. The perfect new addition to the new Wheat Palace.
The black pup is Dallas. A Lab/Pit mix that my young friend brought home to his house to keep and his dad wouldn't let him. I think his dad his right. A teenager just starting high school won't have the time to train a puppy properly. Luckily, the deal depended on dad's approval and the owner took the puppy back. But not until we had fun playing with her and took a few pictures. This is one of her on my new desk.
I can't leave my dog Roxy out of a puppy post. I tried Blogger's video upload for the first time. This is an un-edited clip of Roxy playing with the cat's ball.

Took this picture from the Bettye Cato "Bridge to Nowhere" over Mineral Creek Canyon this afternoon. In the distance is a super tanker being escorted out of Prince William Sound.
This is my third week straight of swimming M/W/F nights and it just keeps getting funner and funner. Tonight I was swimming two laps in under five minutes. I'm still using the flippers and I'm up to 2 boogie boards now. I swim backwards with them one way and forward the other. Much better as my neck was killing me trying to keep my head out of the water. I can't stand going underwater. I had 3 years of swimming lessons as a child and never got out of beginners. But I am enjoying swim nights and my body shows no more signs of sacrolitis. Besides that my jeans are fitting better!

Humanitarian Artist Peter Wolf Toth has donated his Smithsonian recognized Giant Indian Statues (20-40ft tall) to each of the 50 states and Canada. They were made to honor all Native Americans. Even beyond this they honor the struggle of all mankind against injustice. Peter creates smaller statues that he sells, from $27 to $27,000, the average price of $200-$600, to pay for his philanthropist endeavors. To contact Peter, send mail to 102 Arthur Ave/US 1 Edgewater, Water, FL 32141 For a quicker response email firstname.lastname@example.org. He's in Valdez right now giving our Whispering Giant a facelift.

Signs of fresh snow are appearing through the hanging clouds in every direction. You can't look out a window in Valdez without seeing mountains.

Docked on A float is the steel hulled tug the L P W. No longer a working boat, in her day, she was a shrimper, a long liner and a fuel hauler. During the Exxon Valdez oil spill clean up she was a garbage boat. Now she is pleasure craft used for deer hunting in the Sound and the occasional sea cruise.

Most of the fire hydrants in Valdez are higher up than normal. They also have flags attached to let snow plowers and the fire dept. know where they are in deep snow.

This is the West High School volleyball team from Anchorage visiting the Valdez Buccaneers this morning. They stopped walking towards Valdez High School, for me to take a picture, in front of John Harris's house. He is our District Representative and Speaker of the House in the Alaska Legislature. Thats right folks, John has a little pink house. He's also a working Teamster when not in session.

Its not every day you see such a nice "spruced up" 1955 chevy truck in my favorite color. In Valdez, of all places, at the Old Town Burger joint thats closing down for the winter.

" I was wild...free...living life to the fullest! I never thought I'd end up in the CAN!!!"
Here are a couple of my favorite entries in the Wild Salmon on Parade. I voted for "Canned Salmon" but there are other great ones. Check out the Salmon Gallery to see all of them and vote for your favorite. The clever salmon below is "Silverware Salmon".

After the almost six and half inches of rain we got over the weekend Monday and Tuesday have been beautiful fall days. We are due for an Indian Summer. That would be so nice. As long as its nice on the weekends too and not just during the week.
If you want to see a close-up of the sign on the far right you have to go back to a Soggy Summer Solstice in 2006.

Started up with lap swim at the Valdez Buccaneer's pool tonight. The price went up a buck from last year but still worth it. I forgot how much fun swimming is and how good it makes me feel. As an added bonus I won't wash my hair til morning and maybe it will turn blonde.
