I am home. I had an amazing visit in an amazing village. If Tricia and Dave were to stay there, I would probably be up there as often as possible.
Thanks for the great week Tricia, Dave, Ben, Cooper and all of the amazing people I met in Kotzebue.

The cemetery up on the hill again. I love it. It is so primitive, yet beautiful and serene. Standing on this hill and looking west, you look down onto the village and harbor.
My grandson Ben and I out on the Tundra. There were several people out there picking blueberries and low bush cranberries.This lovely lady was very agreeable to allowing me to take her picture while she was picking. She also stopped and showed me what she had picked.
She had been out there for about an hour and a half. She was trying to get a gallon picked tonight and is striving for a gallon every night this week. She also had blueberries in her bucket. She says she cooks them all together with a little sugar and then adds flour to thicken them. I did not think to ask how they eat them though.

It really means what it says. Not only look both ways, but look up also, there may be one landing. The road to the beach goes across the end of the runway, so you really have to be careful!!
I am planning to start home Thursday morning. Will fly to Anchorage have a short layover and on to Seattle in the afternoon. Unfortunately, I will get into Seattle right at the height of rush hour but my other option was late Thursday night, early Friday morning. That is to hard on Stan since he has to work on Friday so I am opting for the rush hour choice.

Tricia's friend Kathy built a raging hot fire for us, using pallets from the store.
While we waited for the fire to burn down, Ben and his friends were entertaining themselves with rocks. You know the boy thing with rocks and water.
Finally the fire burned down enough for us to roast our hot dogs. It was still very hot, I was trying to avoid the heat, yet get my hot dog cooked.
After the hot dogs, there were s'mores.
BUT THE VERY BEST THING ABOUT OUR DAY WAS.....................
My son in law David had to opportunity to baptize my grandson Ben during the Church Service!!

My police friend told me that this is so common that they do not even try to track down these people. Actually, since they are in Africa someplace it is impossible to track them down or stop them. We just have to be alert to what is going on.
Woman duped in US-UK Facebook scam
(UKPA) – 2 days ago
A woman has been duped out of £2,500 after receiving a scam message through Facebook by someone posing as her real-life friend claiming to be stuck in England and in need of emergency funds, US police said.
It began last week when Grace Parry, who lives in Missouri, realised she could not access her Facebook account. Police say someone hacked into the account, posed as Ms Parry, and sent out messages saying she and her husband were being detained in London and needed money.
A friend of Ms Parry's got several of those messages, as well as a call from a man with a British accent who claimed to be an immigration official.
"He said the woman (Parry) and her husband were being detained and that more money was needed to fly them home," police spokesman Jason Selzer said. "She sent three different wire transfers to London."
Ms Parry, meanwhile, tried to warn Facebook friends about the false messages but was unable to get into her account. Her husband posted warnings about the scam, and Ms Parry has since suspended her account.
Ms Parry's friend, who wired the money through Western Union, notified police on August 26.
"I not only felt angry, but violated," Ms Parry told the Southeast Missourian newspaper. She worried that whoever hacked into her computer might also come to her door.
Ms Parry did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment from The Associated Press.
Mr Selzer said there's probably no good way for the woman who was scammed to get her money back. He added, "There's no 100% guaranteed way to protect yourself online."
He encouraged people to change their passwords often and to be careful about posting personal information.

On Tuesday, Brystan #2310 was downtown riding his bike with his brother Cannyn #2208. It is the bike (above) that he got for his birthday in February.
While he and his brother went into a coffeshop some low life drove up in his pickup, grabbed Bry's bike, threw it into the back and drove off with it. They saw it happen, but were totally unable to stop him.
So, to this neanderthal, I say...............go find your hole and crawl back into it. Arlington does not want you. You hurt this boy with your thoughtless greed more than you will ever know or care. I am sure you are the type who thinks we should pay for your medical too. Creep a--h--- cretin miscreant.

A happy boyA long climb
To the topAnd a view to the valley below.Smudges on the picture are because DH does not know he should keep his finger off of the lens
I am thinking that instead of worrying about what he does not say, be more attuned to how he says it.
