The Christmas / Fairy lights are up again.
Mince meat? If it haves meat in it I do not want it. It would make me look silly when I douse it with whipped cream.
We just had a boat order 40 LBS of minced ox.
What is the word on the floods UK?
Today looks quiet, just one phone call so far. One email regarding an order that can be delivered tomorrow. But the day is young. As well as dreary. Light rain off and on, as well as some nice wind gusts.
Last Tuesday night it was really blowing. The high wind I measured overnight was a disappointing 63 mph. I heard the noise, it kept me awake. One minute there would be a BOOM as a gust slammed into my duplex, then it would subside to dead calm.
The rain blasted my window, then changing to sleet.
No snow on the ground right now, it has not been that cold. The only snow is high in the mountains.
NOBLE DISCOVERER, one of the two drill rigs which went north was back in Dutch recently.
This was the vessel that came “close” to grounding on shore a couple months ago in a wind storm.
When it was here recently it had an engine backfire. BIG engine, big backfire. Just like a car. The fire department responded but was turned away. Noble Discoverer left town over a week ago but broke down near Cold Bay. A tug will pull it further southbound east to Seward.
Kulluk is here, but for how long is up in the air. Nobody knows. May head south for maintenance, may sit here.
There are two new foxes who have become regulars at the chow venue. Juan Ear and Juanda. They are a couple I believe, but do not always show up together. In the evening, and in the AM. I turn on the light and they are waiting patiently in the dark.
A couple days ago I took a drive, first in 6 weeks. Over the pass. There was a little snow drifting, and a bit of plate ice. But the ride was doable. Maybe two wheel drives would have a bit of trouble, mainly due to the gravel road having severe erosion. It may be my last ride there this season, not sure.
GNU is gone until early January. Me and two new guys right now. Lost another bookkeeper, looking again.
Been back almost a month, just had Thanksgiving Day off since, maybe today... Good day to hunker down and watch football.
Everyone loves football!
