Day 59-June 25, 2013

Today I scored some alone time.  That’s a rare event, but I had some errands to run.  The first important task I did was to stop by Barnes & Noble.  Dirty work, but someone had to do it.  And, I was the person for the job.  Right in the middle of the store was a round fireplace with a large hearth around it.  All the over-stuffed chairs were filled with people reading and propping their feet up while the fire blazed.  I could just imagine that as my hideout when the weather outside was a little colder.  I loved it.  I picked up the other books in Sharon Sala's Rebel Ridge series.  I read the 3rd one first, ('Til Death) but it didn't matter that it was the last one.  It definitely stood alone.  I liked the other members of Meg's family and really wanted to know their stories, too.

Fairbanks Alaska
Not far from where we are staying here in Fairbanks is the Large Animal Research Station at the University of Alaska. Each year, thousands of visitors take tours of the 134-acre site set up for nutritional, behavioral and physiological studies of muskoxen, caribou and domestic reindeer.  It’s a cool place.
This post isn’t going to be long because my evening was interrupted by . . . well, take a look at this picture of Mr. I Can Ride That Muskox.

Okay, so that’s not what really happened, but Richard thought it sounded more masculine than Mr. I Bent Over To Clip My Toenails and Pulled A Muscle.

For those of you who have asked--this is
what 3:15 in the morning looks like in Alaska
Until next time,

  1. I absolutely love that fireplace at B&N. What a lovely cozy place to read in the winter.

    I'm still chuckling over Richard and the muskox
