Stalker Cat

 What you can’t see in this photo is that Sir Pounce a Lot (previous story) has been stalking the birds since they arrived this spring.  My dad has been making bird feeders similar to this, and we hing this particular one near our cat’s normal perch. Yes, the white stuff in the background is snow….

Not going to see May flowers any time soon

I took this photo last night at 11 pm Yes, it’s light out. The white in the porch banister is snow. Freshly fallen snow in fact. So freshly fallen that it was still snowing. In North Pole, Alaska. The 29th day of April.

Camp LiWa- pt 1

If you’ve been reading for awhile you might remember that post where I mentioned that I would be at a camp for two months last summer. I’m doing it again this summer! That means from the beginning of June until August, I’ll be spending my time with a group of people my age to be counselors and assistant counselors to campers. We have a lot of…

Hello, my name is CraftyAggie.

Why hello road. My name is CraftyAggie. I know it’s been a while since we’ve seen each other, but I’ve missed you. I hope you wouldn’t mind hanging around. Please breakup with snow. You two just aren’t good for each other, and no one likes your lasting relationship. It’s been going on too long.

Ice, please go away!

The ice is acting crazy here in Alaska right now. Since it’s still, let me repeat, still hanging around not melting, it’s been making funky shapes all over the place. This is a picture my Dad took of the ice on his workshop.

My 2 Cents on Fair-weather Friends

I’m of the opinion that if you know the person, and they ask you, “How has your week been?” You answer truthfully, especially when you call that person “friend”. And when you’re a person like me, you have about as many “friends” as a half-dollar has nickels, that means something (although I still don’t think…

Shouldn’t have spoken so soon…

…winter is back! More surprises in Alaska. Snow! For this whole week possibly. Hoping the weatherman is wrong. How about you? Do you still have snow?

Sorry, Snow. This isn’t working out. We need to break up.

Here in Alaska, “Spring” is a welcome season. That means the snow will finally go away, after arriving as early as September and as late as November. Living here we are guaranteed to have a white Christmas. On the flip side, we are not guaranteed that the snow will melt by the end of April,…

Wish I may, wish I might…

…first star I see tonight…” A new realization cane to mind recently; when I was a child loving in South Carolina and Texas I always wanted to live somewhere it snowed and I wanted a horse. Driving hone from work yesterday, I looked up at the stars I used to wish on miles away and…

The History of the Digital Ecosystem

Look for a book about the Internet.  Most of them are not actually about the Internet, but its effect on humans and society.  Also they are mostly about negative effects on the user.  What most people don’t know about the Internet is its history and its rather innocent origins.  Although there are some negatives that…

The Beauty of God

The beauty of God has gone unnoticed, from my perspective by the others is this metal bucket hurtling across the asphalt and ice. It is veiled by longs pieces of wood stuck deep in the ground to grow. It is also covered by distractions. Whether it be by others singing, talking, or what others have…
