errichten Sie dieses Haus... schneller, schneller!



Well, this little Alaskan cabin is going up fast! Those Germans...
I had a good birthday; low key but nice. Sam got me a toolbelt with some of my own tools to help build our new home. Ran errands in town today...windows, doors, material....it never ends. Tomorrow's another big day, we'll put the beams up for the second floor. AND, I get to build an outhouse!! Hurray! Tomorrow evening Sam and I are going to see What'd ya know? It's a funny radio show on NPR that we listen to all the time and that will be taped here in Fairbanks. Should be fun. Raven is still improving and can now wag her tail.

Saturday @ 7 food @ Bob's.

I can't believe you two are going to that radio show. I don't think there's anything lamer on the radio... but maybe that's just me and everyone that I've talked to about it.

Cool that Raven's getting better. Perhaps this will be the weekend you get the no trespassing sign... we'll see. So much work.

Hey! I can't believe you don't think it's funny! And I thought you had a sense of humour...

I don't know, one person I talked to thought that he knew a few 12 year old boys that find the guy funny but that was pretty much it. Pretty elite company there, sister.

Well, at least you'll get to see Anna get married. Us losers will have to listen on the radio.

12-year-old boys? Hmmmm. Ya know, I think it's hydrology that interests 12-year-old boys. And since you love them so much...well, it's a perfect match...congrats! That's for the chow last night. It was nice to meet Jessie and play heart to heart with Margie. Anyway, next weekend bbq at our place.

I put in a vote for Friday night at the barbecues. We're maybe headed out canoing or something Saturday & Sunday.

Yeah, she digs all y'all, too... What's the Raven update on the day? I'm with Kelly!

The house looks great! solid and such beautiful, clean wood. as for the outhouse, it should be the piece de resistance. may i recommend a stick to fish lost stuff out of the hole and please (!) a window. who am i kidding, you alaskans know much more about outhouses than many!
