Hey Trudy,

 

I don't know if you or Jeff ever found a weather radar, but I just did. Weatherbug.com includes Kodiak. It is small, but it's there.

Trudy -

 

I don't know if you like mysteries but I am reading a series of very enjoyable ones set in Alaska. The author is Sue Henry and the one I'm working on is "Death Takes a Passage", set on a cruise ship on the Inside Passage.

 

I :lol :lol last night when I read this:

"Alaska is held together with it. You aren't issued a resident's permit until you can prove you have your own roll of duct tape and know at least 50 ways to use it".

 

The novels are an easy read and have lots of interesting trivia and facts about Alaska. The one I am currently reading as well as several others in the series are *gasp* available at the Kodiak Public Library. ;):)

Dogs thought it was great! They are pretty good with "leave it" and I never actually had to yell "drop it" so that was good :lol

 

Jet tried her best to pee on them all! There was just way too many of them for her to get even close to all of them though :lol :lol g10.gif

So Trudy, honestly, what with the wet weather, a dead salmon filled beach, no good malls nearby and limited shopping, the wonderful roads, no chocolate making :weep , Jeff having been to beautiful Hawaii and Japan without you and least of all, the GT crash, how the HE77 are things in Kodiak and are you enjoying your retirement status???

Wow that's a lot of material to cover, in less than 26 days?

I wish for you that it WAS in Pensacola NAS. You'd probably like the panhandle. I would love to retire in Mary Esther FL, not far from Ft Walton Beach and Eglin AFB.

Where is school and for how long?

Pretty little chinese fishing boat that tried to play a game of hide and seek with the USCGC Munro

IMG_2591.jpg

 

 

 

From the Captain:

Yesterday afternoon, while on patrol, the lookout sighted a somewhat unusual looking fishing boat, sitting still. It was hard to see at first due to the rain, fog, and approaching sunset. As we closed to get a closer look, the vessel started their engines and took off. Silly people - they don't know our engineers and the shape of our engines. We followed them for hours as they tried to outrun us, maneuvering through the fishing fleet in an effort to shake us, even extinguishing their lights (that doesn't work with all the technology we have), and coming at us. We launched our small boat with [removed] serving as point man in attempt to get the vessel to stop, communicate, and verify what appeared to be all the indications we could see of a vessel outfitted for high seas drift net fishing. The master of the vessel finally realized they weren't going to get away and stopped his vessel. After countless hurdles including plenty of expensive phone calls to Juneau and Beijing, we conducted a Cooperative Boarding with our FLEC ship rider that lasted until well after the sun was up. With clear violations of the United Nations moratorium against high seas drift net fishing, we received word this afternoon to support our FLEC ship rider who seized the vessel on behalf of the Government of China. We are now in the process of coordinating where we'll rendezvous with a Chinese FLEC vessel to turn the vessel over with our people remaining on the vessel as a custody crew in support of the People's Republic of China.

I had Jet before I had a fenced yard and we walked at least 3x a day, regardless of weather. We aren't thrilled with walking in heavy rain, but we do it now and then. I try not to let more than a day go by where they don't get a walk, even if it is just a quick one due to really heavy rains.

 

Chocolate - I've done about 15 pounds of chocolates in the last few days and by the time I'm done later this week, will have gone through about 25 pounds of it.

I also seem to have earned "baker" for our Tuesday night gatherings here - fine by me :) I love to bake, but I don't love to eat it all. I was sent home with 2 recipes suggestions for next week :lol

 

Jeff hasn't been to Hawaii since he was stationed there years ago - before I knew him. This patrol has only been S Korea and Japan so far. Hawaii isn't in the plans for this patrol. I have the option of trying to meet the boat, but as they can't plan on boat seizures, they can't make promises to stick to their initial port call schedule, so I didn't find it worth it to try to meet him in Japan for only a couple of days and have a good chance of him actually not being there when I was.

 

Retirement? Somebody should tell my boss I'm retired. I still have my job from/in NY. My project won't end until maybe late this year.

 

Until the salmon issue is umm, not an issue, we'll find some short/easy trails that Ryan can do - which limits us severely, so we'll probably just stick to the dumpster walk for Ryan and then a longer solo walk with Jet later in the day.

 

GT crash - I killed it Sunday night, checked on it Monday morning and went about my normal morning routine. It was fixed when I came back to it. I normally check GT at some point in the morning to see if anything needs attention then go about my normal stuff. I have a life outside of GT (really, I do!). I work at home, so when I am doing work, I can check GT often - who's going to yell at me :lol I charge active work time

 

Online window shopping isn't exactly the same, but it works :)
