Hello Faithful Followers!
Yes, we are still alive, still in Alaska, and still at our homestead. The cabin is still standing (knock wood), both trucks and the ATV are running (knock wood, throw salt, and pray), and Ripley and Jackson are fine and dandy (St Francis protect them). Thanks for being worried about us.
To be perfectly honest, 2014 sucked! It sucked so much that Dyson wants to patent it for a new model vacuum cleaner; because, damn, sucking for a whole year straight without interruption is mighty impressive.
I shan't bore you with the details because I'm not one for pity parties unless there is cake and ice cream, some of those cool hats, and those noisemaker things. And maybe some sparklers. Or a pinata.
I'm not even going to postulate what's in store for 2015 or make any plans. There is just too much up in the air right now to figure what's going to land or when. We can only hope it falls where we want it to and doesn't land on anything important. If we catch a break or do something interesting, we'll post.
Happy New Year to everyone (including Gungnir, since I lost track of time again)
