Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015

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)

so wonderful to read your post! I've still checked your blog almost daily for a year always hoping to see a snippet of your life again. funny, but what you think is nothing interesting, I imagine most of us would think the opposite! I had finally assumed you moved elsewhere, so it was nice to have the update. wishing you the very best for 2015!

SO glad to hear you are alive and kicking...just kick something that won't hurt afterward...and make sure you have on your steel toeds before you do.
Best of luck in 2015, I wish you lots of sunshine and no mud at all.

As a faithful follower of your blog since 2009 when I was contemplating a job offer in Alaska I'm happy to read that you are alive and still around. I hope that 2015 shapes up the way you want it to!
