Dear Readers, Walt and I are skipping across the pond to England for a week! I'm so excited, I have never been abroad and to quote my son, "The trip I have waited for my entire life!"
I doubt I will have access to computers and whatnot, but you never know. Otherwise, I will take lots of pictures and post upon my return. In the meantime, take care while I am gone and I shall see you when I get back.
Tea and crumpets here I come!

Walt and I went to see Jersey Boys in New York! What a hoot! It was an amazing musical (and I really don't like musicals much). But, aside from that tidbit, after the show, I waited by the stage door and collected an autograph or two, screaming like a teenager from the 50's, as opposed to being in my fifties. Anyway, I took some pictures of New York and here they be.

I would like to fill in a little more back story on my second year in the bush. First, November of that year, I remarried. No, not an Alaskan. Women ask me all of the time if it is true that the male/female ratio is more favorable in Alaska. It is. But instead I married an old friend, Walt, who was living in New Jersey which is how I migrated from Ohio. We have been married three and a half years and it has been a good thing.
Second, I spent part of that school year working in Fairbanks. Allow me to sum that up: I LOVE Fairbanks. It is a college town that is immensely diverse and filled with lots of things to do, panoramic views and some of the nicest people I have ever met. Over thirty languages are spoken in the Fairbanks schools. The two also boasts two military bases and I had the extreme pleasure of working with some of the children at Ft. Wainwright. Nice nice kids!
I will try to add some more photos from Fairbanks later.
