I ended in such a rush yesterday I forgot to give you my news update and I just knew your day would be fulfilled to have my news shorts slowly dribble into your minds if I remembered to get the ones out to you this evening. Where I may lead you to one fabrication or another and the ever hopeful historical phenomenon, or basically of myth and legend, and simply... maybe the truth.
I hope you are all having a great Sunday, because Moose Pass is under mostly clear blue skies, with a few puffy white marshmallows dancing off our mountain tops. However, there is a noticeable fall chill in the air and the yard is becoming covered over in leaves. Also, those dang spiders are coming in to make their winter housing complexes. Now I leave them alone outside, but inside...they lose if I see them. This is when I'm Godzilla stomping Tokyo, taking out these 8-story webbed buildings and sending spider families scampering off in all directions.
Hello. This is one of those cloudy/sunny days and where something or someone is jamming up my computer and TV. I really dislike this when it happens. But, when I put my TV on music mode and listen to soft rock, no problem. I had been watching a morning movie on Netflix and every ten seconds the movie jammed for five seconds or more. Frustrating.
Typhoon by any other name, for the moment, has just hit us, or so it feel like. But prior to this, most of the day wasn't too bad at. I'm concerned we may wake up in the morning and find some of our beautiful trees on the ground some foolish looking with flying around on one or two of them. With Christmas light now out for sale, it's got to have the witches confused about Halloween. As for me I'll be on the roof with the new .22 rifle I was gifted taking pot-shots as its doubtful any of these people ever attended a licensed ground school classes. keep wonder what the cost would be for having one stuffed to mount on the side of my house, might help keep the bugs away.
I wish I could share this beautiful sunny day with all of you, it is one of those truly rewarding experiences to experience God's glory. Oh, another storm is inbound, but for now we can see out mountains, all our greenery and the occasional mountain goat. Robin Hood and his Merry Men would just love Moose Pass, of course nowadays they'd have to change their name from "merry men" to _________, you pick one out. I have this fine-looking Spruce tree growing right outside my writing area's window. I've been watching it grow for 16-years and now it's surrounded by 4 smaller Spruce and a Cotton Wood Tree.
Good Evening Everyone: Rain has returned, hitting hard and we've been told not to be surprised by a sudden frost. The storms seem to have brought a nasty flu-like bug along and everyone in the house is down, but me. Thankfully, no one wants to eat anything. The local newspaper ran a story on our Exit Glacier's receding rate and the photos amazed me. I recalled seeing in the first time in 1984 and it was a good sized glacier. Now, it looks more like an ice dam. President Obama, while visiting Seward in July of this year, walked out on to the glacier and now that very place in only muddy water. Behind the Glacier is the opening gateway to the vast Harding Ice Field. I can only imagine at this current rate of melting, the Harding Ice Field might be massive waterways in 500-years.
