Caveat: Just Us Chickens (And Goats and Dogs and Bears…)

This morning Arthur and I took Wayne to the Klawock airport, and he flew back to his home on Vancouver Island, BC.  That leaves just Arthur and me alone together again, at this place Arthur calls "Rockpit, Alaska." That's Arthur's … Continue reading

Caveat: Cake

Today was Arthur's birthday. Last week was my birthday. Wayne was very cool – he ordered us a chocolate cake, with both of our names on it. So we had a birthday party. And the rain came, to help us … Continue reading

Caveat: On Conversation

I don't have much to report. We went out on the boat today. It felt like Arthur had decided this would be a last trip of the season. When we got back, we pulled the boat out of the water. … Continue reading

Caveat: Chupe de pescado al estilo alasquense

I made chupe de pescado. This is a South American dish, a type of fish chowder. I had it frequently in Chile, and later I had it often at a Peruvian restaurant in Newport Beach, California, when I was working … Continue reading

Caveat: Lottafish

This morning, Juli and Keith left to return back to Portland. They took the ferry across to Ketchikan, which requires a very early departure from the house – 6 AM. Wayne drove them over there, and then went and did … Continue reading

Caveat: Up and down and here and there

I had a rather busy day today. First, in the morning, I tried tromping up to the southeast corner of the lot. I didn't reach it – I got about two-thirds of the way, which would be about 50m. But … Continue reading

Art's friend and sometime service provider Richard came out today with his backhoe to start work on digging the new driveway for the western parcel. This was the project that Arthur had initiated back in May when he was trying … Continue reading

Caveat: Another Fish

We went out fishing this morning. Arthur caught one fish. In the afternoon, I went up the hill on what's becoming my daily trompabout. I still can't find the stake marking the southwest corner of the lot. Searching and sliding…  … Continue reading

Caveat: Lost in the woods

I went out tromping on the hillside again this morning. You'd be surprised to learn it's possible to get lost within 200 feet of the road – the brush is so thick, and the hillside is so steep and irregular. … Continue reading

Caveat: Somewhere Under The…

Arthur found a rainbow. He wanted to clean his boat, so he got it out of the water. I let him do his thing, although of course I watched and worried. I think it's important for him to not feel … Continue reading

Caveat: Just In Case I Was Running Out Of Books

Just in case I was running out of books, someone generously mailed some books to me from Korea. Oh, wait. That was me. They took a while to cross the Pacific in a boat. Yay! More books. In other news, … Continue reading

Caveat: On Managing Risk

So today was a hard day. It started with heavy rain, which perhaps annoyed Art because he'd ideated going fishing again. When the rain cleared in the afternoon, we took a walk down to the bridge (which we're trying to … Continue reading

Caveat: One Fish

Finally, there was a non-rainy day that could make it possible for Arthur to fulfill his long-felt destiny: going fishing. We got in the boat, and got ready. It's an odd experience – I am relying on him for his … Continue reading

Caveat: My Kingdom of Cellulose

I have a lot of stuff, there's no denying that – now that it's put all together, and nothing is in storage any more. 90% of it is cellulose, meaning, obviously books, but also a vast packrattery of files and … Continue reading

Caveat: the move becomes concrete

I woke up before dawn. This was the Sunny Hay, shrouded in clouds across the water. We went into town in the morning. Arthur was confident at the bank, but confused at the library. That's because he was thrown off … Continue reading

Caveat: Road

We drove up the road. But first, we had some breakfast with Barb and Tom Peters, in Eureka. These are old friends of my mom's and Arthur's. Their house is charming. Across the street is a high school my sister … Continue reading

Caveat: This Place Where I Am
