People who know me well wonder how long I’ll be able to work from ideas that have been stewing in me for years. I wonder the same thing. Giving up on Alaska and Hawaii to return to the “united” days of the United States is one of those. If I wait a year, I could write it to commemorate 50 years, but I’ve decided not to wait. Who knows what will be happening a year from now, right? So I chose the Alaska piece for this week — pure fun. I hope you enjoy it.
