Hi all ~ just a quick note to let you know that I will be a vendor at the show at Malabar Farm this Saturday, September 27 from 10-4 p.m.   I made a decision in the Spring to bow out as we just came back from vacation Tuesday night and I thought I would be too tired.  But, I'm ready to roll and there was a place for me to squeeze in so ~ come see us all!  Lots of antiques, folk art and wool for your shopping pleasure!!!  Nothing better than a show on a sunny fall day down in the Pleasant Valley!!!

We took a bus tour of the city of Juneau and the Mendenhall Glacier today!

A telephoto of the glacier ~ it's blue ~ icy blue!

We took a two mile round-trip hike to Nugget Falls ~ 34 years ago it was covered by the glacier ~ global warming is a real thing!!

We had a wonderful driver/tour guide ~ Archie ~ a Tlingit Indian ~ so interesting and informative!

It is a privilege to be able to see the glacier and this land of some real pioneers! Pretty rugged territory!
