Well, as usual I don't have as much time as I'd like to spend talking about our unusual family. I've been busy with my on-line writing "gig" and keeping up a schedule of hiking and running (to keep my weight from ballooning over the impending holidays).
I find that it takes me 1-2 days to complete a trail description for VisitRainier.com and that doesn't include doing the hike. But I am not complaining; I am fortunate to earn a modest income from my writing. And I do stress "modest".
Still, I am not complaining about "modest". How many of us are fortunate enough to get paid anything for what we love doing most?
Here's a photo of Grandfather Dalby and the war canoe on "the point". It's still there though not much of it remains.
