Neverfind Apartments

When I first moved to Anchorage 30 years ago I lived in the "Neverfind Apartments" owned by some folks with a sense of humor from Finally Found, Colorado.

My new apartment reminds of that place. Except this apartment building has no name.

Coat of Ice

If you look through the trees you can see a guy riding a bike on a sheet of ice. He's pulling a trellis type wheeled wagon. That helps steady him I think. I've seen him going both ways on the one-way frontage road. Once when I was driving it. He was in the middle of the road going the wrong way. I gave him plenty of room. He smiled and waved as I went by.

Fish Earrings

I picked these out. I don't have peirced ears but a friend who does would also like these. With Christmas coming soon I've got to get busy shopping. I don't have any of my canned salmon left to give away as presents this year. Hopefully that will change next year!

Big Lake Pumpkin Family

I had a great couple of days off. Went and visited friends in Big lake. They got their outside Christmas lights up and the inside getting ready for Thanksgiving. I'll be working Turkey Day making 8 turkeys! That will be a record for me.

Mr. Chief

One of the perks of living in Alaska is the diversity of the land. I've lived here 30 years and have only seen 1/90 of the "Great Land". And it still amazes me. I'm in the largest city now where I lived and worked 30 years ago. Since then I've been on any accessable road from Anchorage.

They don't call me the FishTaxi for nothing. Okay, I'm getting on my high horse.

Come along for the ride.

Google Veteran

I am always a day late in posting, clocked in at 11:29 pm Alaska Time and Google shows up on my homepage with what every American should know.

I did my part and volunteered to get the bbq going! Shopped for the ribs, chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob and made the pot salad while the cutup ribs were baking in the oven soaked in coke. They are now out of coke and are resting quietly, in the cooler, to be qued on this Veterans Day.

My View Today

In the top pic I photoshopped out the New Seward HWY and frontage road. The bottom pic is from inside my apt.
I block out the noise of highway by telling myself its a waterfall while listening to Radio Paradise.

Cute Little Raider Fan

Took this pic last Sunday at the American Legion where I work as a cook. On Sundays we do a killer breakfast brunch for football fans. Then after breakfast I put out a big spread for the Texas Hold 'Em crowd. So far they like my cooking, only complaint is it isn't "enough". I'm learning fast how to cook for crowds. Don't want to lose this job! I enjoy it and I signed a year lease on my new apt. I've never been Head Cook before. I do all the ordering, shopping and menu planning. And take the flack if its not done right. Its fun though and I'm meeting new people in the big city. Oh, and GO PACKERS!!!

Brain Food

Thanks for the wakeup/job call! I had a great summer off from blogging, missed it a lot. Took a lot of pictures when I could charge my battery and had my camera in hand. When I had internet connection I joined facebook and hooked up with family and long lost friends. I love it! I no longer need to send a birthday card to my mom or my grandma needs to send me the bd card every year with 5 bucks in it. Its the frugal way now. We are all connected some way.
This is a pic I took out of my hotel window in Spenard. Thats the top of my duffle bag propped up. I came into Anchorage to get my 1999 Toyota Sienna get worked on. Took longer than I thought and in the meantime since then landed a job, got an apt and here I am blogging again.
From Anchorage and beyond!
