Today was wait for important phone calls. We had to have conference calls with my Mom’s Nursing home to get some care issues taken care of. They were resolved so the day was not wasted.
At our social gathering we celebrated Mary’s birthday. It’s not really her birthday but we let her think it was. She gets confused according to Gary and wants to celebrate it months ahead of time and then doesn’t count any of them…smile.
Here are the Arctic Circle Gang. Jean & Claudette on the right will be departing the group and moving at a little faster pace that we are. It was really nice having them along and glad they could make it this far. They has some mechanical problems down in Valdez but survived. Jim & Pat are around somewhere but are out of cell phone service. Larry & Marilyn are down in anchorage waiting for their new Frig.
They got back yesterday. They really enjoyed the trip and said they would do it again for sure. They brought back everyone a bottle of Arctic water. Ours is yellow. What does that mean?
Plus on the dry side. Carol had pulled pork. It was tasteless. It didn’t taste like pork much less any flavor. The corn bread pancake was burnt black on the underside. That tells me the cook don’t care about what he serves. The Texas toast was not toasted and had very little butter. On the good side the fried okra was good and the corn on the cob was too. Carol liked the sweet cole slaw. Sweet?
Tomorrow we head 12 miles down the road to North Pole. We will be staying in the area and sorting our mail that should be ready for pick up.
