August 9, 2013, what an incredible day! Sunny and calm, the first day of the 67th Golden North Salmon Derby and my mother’s 85th birthday.
Juneau must be one of the most beautiful places on earth when the weather is like this. This summer has been awesome; what a difference a year makes. Last summer I found my mind bathing in the deepest darkest depths of despairing self-pity, complaining about the relentless rain.
Have I mentioned I love my Ford F250?
I love my wonderful mother and a sunny Southeast Alaska day more, but I do like that Ford.
