and Ginny (Alicia and Ginny are both pregnant.. that's why I took this picture like this)
Here are all four of the cooks, Lauren left a few weeks before this, there were five of them. Here is Sam's little boy, Logan, he is so cute.... ...but if he doesn't want you to look at him, he screams, just like this... (hahahaha)
Then we went flying in Andrew's Super Cub Straight ahead is the runway we used, it looks like a road, we were crossing the "big" runway.Looking back at the airport where we just took off Ain't that purty? We dropped and came in low over the dock so Darryl Q. could get a video on his camera Here I was trying to get a picture of Darryl, but the picture took too late. Still, I wanted you to see just how low we were to the water. (cringe) Beautiful fall colors along the Andreafsky River Thoroughly enjoyed the flying... can't wait to do it again! Love you, babe!!

You remember the picture of the funny looking car that I posted several weeks ago? It was on this post. Well, it was in our Golden Days parade and I noticed that someone else had gotten a better picture of it than I had and I "stole" their picture and put it on here so you could see it better. It is so funny, I think. I mean, why would you attach birch trees to a car?? I don't get that. :)

It's fall. We're having beautiful days... temps up in the 60's and very clear sunny skies.

I'm struggling to find something to blog about. I'm sure you could tell that by the fact that I've had Sarah Palin's picture up for a week now. Well, I've been immersed in her campaign, the RNC and all the trash talk for the last week and I'm trying to get myself picked up from all of that and blogging about something different.
Most of you know that every resident Alaskan gets a dividend each year. The unique thing about Alaska is that the constitution says that all of the resources the land produces belong to the residents of Alaska. So when oil was discovered they set up a "savings account" with a payout of the "interest" to the people. (this is not the exact definition, but it is the easy way to explain it)
Today we found out what our dividend is going to be.... $2069....each. Oh my word, that's the most ever. And in addition to that we get a $1200 a piece as an "energy boost" that our awesome Governor, soon to be Vice President, proposed and got approved earlier this summer. Isn't that awesome?
Well, if I have to live in this freezing cold, dark place.... I might as well get paid for it. :)
