May is a Cool Month at Mat-Su

May is a busy month. Mother’s Day, graduations, Nurses’ Day, Memorial Day, and also my birthday. To celebrate my birthday we are offering $56 off of every CoolSculpting treatment hour unit purchased in May. (You can guess how old I am now.) As always,...

Happy Spring! Happy Easter!

There’s no denying it: Spring is here. The snow and ice have completely melted from my drive. The mud and muck in the woods have replaced the snow drifts, and of course the pups love to play in the muck. (So tasty!) I see as many four wheelers on...

Luck of the Irish

Happy March. The days are longer, the Daytona 500 has been completed, Iron Dog just finished, and Iditarod will be starting soon……in Fairbanks. It all adds up to the promise of Spring. March also brings us St. Patrick’s Day, and why not have a bit...

Happy Valentine’s Day!

February is already upon us. We took about 10 days off in January to go to the Galapagos Islands. If you are a birder you are probably familiar with all the species found on the islands. We are not birders at all, but it was fun to see all the varieties....

PUPPIES!

As many of you know, we lost our sweet Ruthie and Molly early this summer. Ruthie’s passing was not a surprise, but Molly’s death was beyond heartbreaking. She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma and left us within 2 months of Ruthie. Perhaps our girls...

A Month of Change

September is a month of change. Labor Day bids farewell to summer and escorts autumn to our doors. The leaves are changing. The angle of the sun is notably different, and we have actual night now. Gone are the days of whining about not being able to sleep...

Hooray for Fishing

July is winding down. Back-to-school ads are in the paper, and here in Alaska, we are fishing. In Alaska we all fish. Some more than others, and certainly some with better results than others. But we fish. This week Gary and I went dip-netting at Fish...
