I haven’t been posting the last few days due to our roof getting new shingles, and the pounding above my head tends to stop me from being on line. I do get on later after they leave, but by that time I’m just too damn tired.
Anyway, thought I’d type out a quick note. It’s been just your normal week really, with the exception of the roofers, work during the day, rest at night. Weather has been mostly cloudy this week, though the temps have been a very nice mid 60’s.
Here are a couple more photos from this past weekend.
Today was the day to clean up our guest bedroom, was full of boxed stuff, and put all the boxes out in the garage, but first, we needed to clean out the garage. Most of the stuff in the garage was either stuff to throw away, or haul out to the shed, now my shop. 🙂 I have a good place to work on the cars back by the shed/shop, but my tools were in the garage, pain in the neck, having to walk back ‘n forth for tools. Now they are all out in the shop, I just need to get that organized now.
The weather lately has been quite predictable, nice in the morning and early afternoon, warm, then come later in the day, rain with thunderstorms pass through, then clearing in the evening. All in all, pretty damn nice.
More photos from yesterdays hike in Archangel Valley.

Can you ever get tired of warm sunny days? I’m not sure, one thing I do know for sure, is it sure the hell is dry. Big time fire danger out there.
Some news from Anchorage caught my eye. I think it’s a great thing!
Police watch for loose dogs in the beds of pickup trucks.
A dog riding loose in the back of a pickup with its head held high sniffing the wind may seem like an iconic image of summer. But it’s illegal in Anchorage.
With the onset of warm weather, police are warning drivers that pooches loose in the backs of pickups can mean fines ranging from $50 to $1,000.

Signs of spring? Well here, the frist golf course is open, now that’s a true sign of spring! I’m no longer a golfer, I did many years ago and maybe I should start up again, don’t know. No matter if you like golf or not, once a golf course opens, you know that spring is here and summer is just around the corner. More and more buds are popping in the trees, not to mention the willows, pussy willows, they are really going at it, well, at least the ones that haven’t been eaten by moose. Just in the past few days, the snow has gone whoosh, almost gone but the piles and a few spots the Sun doesn’t hit.
One thing I will truely miss about spring is the peepers, frogs mating. I have always loved the sound of the peepers in the spring as you go by a pond and hear croaking that almost deafens.

PALMER ? In the Mat-Su Valley, a golf club can serve as a barometer for the seasons. Because as soon as the club comes out of the bag and the ball hits the tee, it?s spring in the Mat-Su Valley.
And spring starts today.
The Palmer Golf Course is set to open today at 9 a.m., continuing its tradition as the first 18-hole course in the state to open for business.Assistant golf pro Hunter Blake takes some practice shots on the first tee at Palmer Golf Course Thursday afternoon. The course is scheduled to open at 9a.m. today. (ROBERT DeBERRY/Frontiersman) A dozen holes will be available for local golfers to play at a rate of $10, PGC director of golf George Collum said.
Another sign of spring, the clouds. The clouds now look like summer clouds and no longer winter snow clouds.
