a fond farewell

Well, our time in Alaska has come to a close, and we'll be leaving for the airport in about an hour. It's always a little bittersweet to leave here, but I'm anxious to get home. I have all of my fingers and toes crossed that my plants survived the last couple of weeks. We shall see.

We had a great time while we were here. We got to visit with a lot of old friends, and some new ones. I finally got to meet this sweet chica...

You can't help but like Ruth! She's a total hoot to hang out with! Definitely wish she lived closer. We even got to meet up with some of our old military friends from up here. We used to have such a great crew to hang out with when Bryan was stationed here. I miss those guys TONS!

I finally put some glue to paper, and got my little gnomie project going...

This is going to be my little travel album. I'll just have to remember to take my little gnome friend along on our trips so that he can have his picture taken, and write about his many adventures. I'll finish my Alaska page when I get home. But, for now, at least the book is put together. I'll share more of that ongoing project.

Well, I had better get ta' crackin'. I have a few more things to pack before we head out for the airport. It will probably be a couple of days before I make a return to bloggy land. It always seems to take a little longer than expected to get settled back in at home. So, I hope that everyone had a great weekend! I'll be chattin' with you soon. But for now, I'll leave you with a funny little picture of Sake.

The poor little dear seems to have lost all of her puppy teeth at once. And, without any teeth to hold it in, her tongue just seems to loll out of her mouth all day long. Cute nonetheless, no?

Cute picture of you with Ruth! You're so pretty, Holly!

I'm glad you had a good time, that's really cool. Sake must have had fun too, eh? Cute picture of her. At least she's getting through her chewing stage, or is she?

The title to your travel book is too funny! Love it!
