Ok now...Since I have been letting Fred stay at my place I think I deserve 2 vacation homes. They do not have to be anything fancy and only need to be around 800 to 1000 square feet in size.

Home #1...Located on an island in the Southeast Alaska panhandle. The island will be on the Pacific ocean side of things versus the inside passage of the panhandle. The house will be on a bluff overlooking the Pacific ocean.

Home #2...Located in the Rocky Mountains. It will be up on a ridge overlooking a small valley with a lake in the center. Close by will be a fast moving river.

Home #3 (I just got greedy)...Located in the back country of Kluane Lake wich is located along the Alaskan Highway in Canada. This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen.


Bonus Question:

The last time you were disappointed was it due to a
Thing ?
Probably this one
Person ?
Event ?



Extra Credit Question:


I really need to catch up on sleep


Just for Fun:

I can now officially add
Tour Guide to my "resume" ?

Drawing a total blank on this one.

No Pants Day. While there are a few people I can see this working for, I am NOT one of them.

Great Lakes Awareness Day
Yea! I wish there were more awareness when it comes to them. I don't think most people have a clue about them.

It's finally Friday! We have a Patriot Guard Mission tomorrow...

It's a really cool one....The veteran we're honoring was MIA from the Vietnam War and had been missing since 1972. Sadly it was DNA that identified him but now the family can put him to rest. It's the least we can do to be there to show our respects.

ETA: Because so many asked..the name of the soldier finally coming home is Sgt James H. Alley, 22, USAF.
Thanks and really..it's not about us and what we're doing it's all about them.
