As part of the fee for my staying here, I will be house sitting for my hostess for a few days while she flies down to the lower forty-eight, Las Vegas to meet a sister and a friend and plan for her upcoming fall wedding to her long term partner. Also keeping some tabs on her two teens who do not need a sitter but an adult to keep things legal and not too crazy but that will not chain me here so long as I come and go a bit randomly and make sure no parties etc.! She will be back the day before I head off to Fairbanks.
Another rather cloudy but mild day and rain farther west/north is not supposed to get here, at least for a few days. So all is well. Below are the pix; not edited since I do not have a program to do much of that on this mini-puter.
The first is a view of the lake and mountains from close to the house here; the second is the promised selfiue of me in the same locale and the next is an afternoon scenic view and then a view of the house, Alaska style modern--no log cabin but a steep roof to shed the snow.They are not placing well; internet is flaky today.The white SUV (a Toyota) is the car I may use. The red one is her son's friend.
