Here's Chubbs modelling the smoke ring. I think he should become a professional kitty model. Look how he is sitting so proud with it. Actually we kinda had to bribe him. Eric was petting him until I was ready with the camera. When I was ready, he pulled his hand away causing Chubbs to look up at him. That's when I snapped the picture.Now here's me modelling the smokering. Quivet is suppose to be much warmer than wool be not even half as thick. I'll let you know here when it gets cold enough to wear it. Might not be too long the way the morning temperatures are going. It's been in the high 20s the past few mornings.

We had a few more peas and strawberries that were picked earlier this fall/summer maybe another 2 batches like this one. This was all the bigger the carrots got. We planted alot of them and weren't able to get to them to weed them out. Oops!

No, I'm just kidding. It's actually the caribou headSo that is the trip of the mighty hunter. No bear, but a pretty nice looking caribou!
After 2 weeks, it's nice to have the husband back. It's hard to believe it's been a year already (actually last Monday was the "official" date) since we've been married. We're still working on the whole annivesary gift thing. I'll keep you posted!

HC: I believe that diplomacy is the cornerstone of any foreign policy
SP: I can see Russia from my house
HC: I believe that Global Warming is caused by man.
SP: I believe that Global Warming is god hugging us closer
HC: I don't believe in the Bush Doctrine
SP: I don't know what you mean
(see Sarah Palins interview with Charles Gibson)
Then they talked a little about the sexism in poltics and SP said don't refer to me as a MILF (if I have to explain what a MILF is, you don't need to know ;)

On another note, I got to help out with the high school's Hunter's Education course yesterday. We did a portion of the field course where they go out and work on whether a situation would be a good shot or not. Tomorrow we get to do the air rifle course for shooting performance. I'm so glad that I got myself certified to help with the Hunter's Safety course. It's very obvious that it's needed here in Bethel, so that means it's needed even more in the villages. I'm hoping I can work this into camps next summer.
Speaking of camps, I'm not sure if you all remember my little breakdown this summer over the people in Washington DC calling and talking about pulling funding for the program (more importantly my job!). Anyways, we got a letter in the mail from the Department of Education stating that our program was slated for non-continuation of funding, but since we have shown that we are working on improving our numbers they feel that we are showing progress and decided to let us keep our funding. Big load off the shoulders. Another new development that has come into play is that I am being put on a new grant as the program manager. We haven't gotten the funding yet, probably won't know until sometime next summer. I'll tell you more about it as the details play out. I'm not sure who up here reads my blog, but I don't want to be saying too much because certain people may not know yet.
Well, I am going to get back to surfing the web. Talk to you all soon.
