Arthur and I drove into town this evening and had dinner with Richard and Jan and Frank and Heidi and Marshall. These are all denizens of Craig, who have been supportive of Arthur over the last summer’s events, and of … Continue reading

Caveat: Walking alone

Somewhat to my surprise, Arthur didn’t want to walk with me today. I think he enjoys walking in the rain less than I do. And I know I’m weird. Anyway, I went on my daily walk alone, in the rain. … Continue reading

Caveat: Botarlos votando

Como suele enunciar mi tio, “never vote for an incumbent.” No estoy seguro de si así hace. Me parece que sus instintos libertarios (o sea, anti-gobierno) son demasiados fuertes para que se atreva a votar por un demócrata. Acá en … Continue reading

Caveat: A daily walk

One thing I try to do is take a daily walk. It’s important to get out of the house. I think it’s good for Arthur,  too. It’s hard to get motivated when it rains for days on end. Interestingly, I … Continue reading

Caveat: An Archeology of the Air

Nothing much to say. Arthur complains he’s not doing anything. I told him he’s retired. He said no, “just tired.” Some pictures. On a stormy, windy morning, the sky broke open and spilled out a rainbow… A jagged snag… The … Continue reading

Caveat: High Stakes

I located the last of the southern platt stakes, today. The context: This was the last one that needed to be found. The three southern stakes were what needed to be located – they are the ones high up on … Continue reading

Caveat: Hard labor at 10:22 PM

Last night, Arthur decided that it was time to bring in the “rails” from his boat ramp. It’s like a miniature, 15 meter railroad stuck out into the water; it’s how he gets his boat in and out of the … Continue reading

Caveat: Saturday Outing

Caveat: Small Steps

I spent a lot of time on my tax work today. I got as far as sending off an email to the preparer with a first draft of the spreadsheet I have to make, summarizing my Korean income for the … Continue reading

Caveat: No brainer

Arthur was talking on the phone with his friend Dean the other day. I only heard one side of the conversation, but Arthur said something quite funny and self-reflective. I guess Dean had asked him how his recovery was going, … Continue reading

Caveat: Just some pictures on a new blog-host

Here are some photos from yesterday and today. It’s been raining a lot. And I’ve been very busy building a new blog host – I’m self hosting it on my server. I’m not sure this is a permanent solution, but … Continue reading

Caveat: Typepad broke my heart (and, not incidentally, broke my blog) today.

I found out today that my blog host, Typepad, has altered a functionality upon which I have relied heavily. I have, for the last 4 years, been hosting all my pictures "off-site" relative to the blog. This helps me keep … Continue reading

Caveat: Becoming Alaskan

Today was a day with a few bureaucratic milestones. I finally completed the process of getting my Alaskan ID/Driver License, and I also got my voter registration. I finally feel I am taking the first steps to becoming an Alaskan. … Continue reading

Caveat: river of text

I did more tromping up on the hillside today, looking for that southwest stake. Earlier, in the morning, I contemplated my destiny in the form of a screen full of text. I do this a lot. Here is the river … Continue reading

Caveat: what, me worry?

It's already the middle of October. This is some vacation, eh? Not so bad at all. I have certain hobbies: I'm doing some writing (I mean besides the poetry, seen here); I tromp up the hill and look for stakes … Continue reading

Caveat: Yesterday’s stake for lunch

Yesterday I found the middle stake on the southern property line – the division between the two lots of Arthur's property here. Now from here, I should be able to use the same technique to find the southwestern stake, which … Continue reading

Caveat: The Mysterious Painted Rock

On our afternoon walk, I found a mysterious brightly painted piece of rock at the 8 mile bridge on the Port Saint Nicholas Expressway. I wonder what it was? [daily log: walking, 4km]
