With Dutch Harbor in the rear view window, I am camped out in Louisville, KY. looking for employment and a new chapter.

Weather continues here. Daily snow, daily thaws. Hard to keep up.
Had to have the Tahoe worked on, to get the 4 wheel drive fixed. I need that to get out of my driveway the last few days. The snow plow leaves a nice WALL of snow to blast through as I exit. But if I blast too boldly, I end up blasted in the other side of the road WALL. Each day I leave tire tracks to be used later. But they get filled with more snow..
Two of the larger boats who come to Dutch docks are in town right now. They do not always come to the dock, as they sit out in the harbor and various boats go to them. They are keeping us busy.
We had a 10 AM delivery scheduled for today. It kept being put back until now it is scheduled for 9AM tomorrow. Guys were on call for a few hours, until the boat made a decision. Not 3 PM. Not 5 PM. Not 10 PM. Now it is 9 AM. It is a BIG boat, and heading to Crowley Dock in view from my window. There is supposedly big weather later tonight (as usual) and Crowley dock is exposed to that. So they will just not come in until tomorrow.
Only after arranging KENNELAGE with OSDianna did it hit me she will have the cats for 8 months. At least THAT based on plans. I may have to go for a visit on the bigger road trip I will be taking in May. I hear there is GOLF in Ocean Shores.
OH yeah, the BOOK is DONE. I finished my last FREE edit tonight. I got up to 50 corrections for free. I used 49. Many of them were GAPS in the paragraph I submitted. Call it Publisher errors.
Search for THE ROAD TO UNALASKA. I need to charge $90 per paperback, factoring in my expenses compared to demand.
I am packing already. All my personal stuff. When I return I have no idea where I will be living.
Looking into the California Zephyr still. Most of the reviews say the train is not the best food or cleanest. But the scenery is awesome. SOLD. Service is spotty good / bad.. Will probably do it.
Crazy Sunday today. We had shipments via three different shipping companies this weekend. They arrived together just by bad luck. 145 pallets to receive and deliver (most of them). Plus a ton of air freight that was all backed up do to weather. Actually several tons.
Three hot deliveries first thing in the AM.
