Two pictures

Had the distinct pleasure of spending four days in the Boundary Waters with these three lovely ladies.  They fought rapids, slapped mosquitos, ate my cooking, and lugged incredibly heavy packs over portages without complaining.  Much.  Kacie, Kim, and Teya, it was an honor to enjoy the wilderness with you!  The picture, of course, is not from the Boundary Waters but rather from Artists Point in Grand Marais while we waited for Sven & Ole's Pizza to open after the trip.

My brother has taken in two foster children.  Sam and Ella are probably about six weeks old and are being rehabilitated so they can go back into the wild.  They are appropriately suspicious of humans, hate the sound of the washing machine, and have an amazing ability to ride on people's shoulders once they get over being shy.  

For regular readers, my apologies for not posting much lately.  Hopefully these two pictures give a little bit of an idea of why that's been the case.  Plus my mind seems to have been taking a break from thinking deep thoughts the last few weeks.  Though I watched a documentary about Dietrich Bonhoeffer today and that got me thinking.  He'll do that.


  1. Makes me want Pizza. I know that seems completely random, but you should be used to that from me by now. Check out Sam and Ella's Chicken Palace in Tahlequah, OK.

    oddly enough they don't serve Chicken, except on their Pizza. Yum.

  2. I love that Okie sense of humor. Too fun! And yes, I expect the randomness!
