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

Saw an interesting position I applied for yesterday. They wanted someone to work operations in a company that specializes in selling food, through their food stores, in island communities. Sounded familiar. I think they want more experience than I have, but I gave it a chance. It sounds interesting as they have locations in The Carribean, Hawaii, GUAM, and even Alaska. Sounds like a lot in Alaska. They used to have a store in Dutch when I first went there, but it closed soon after that.
But, like I said, it is a long shot.
Yesterday I was sitting at the computer with the patio door wide open. Weather is perfect right now.
I looked down just in time to see a chipmunk run in and head for the restroom. The good news for it was that the cats were sleeping in the bedroom. It had a lot of energy and was running back and forth, checking the place out.
First thing I did was verify the status of the cats. Fluff was perked up and walking toward the door. I closed her off by shutting one of the doors into the bedroom. There is a second door into the bathroom, and I went to shut it, too. Too late, chipmunk came running into the bedroom. He ran under the bed., then right back out and back through the bathroom. I shut the second door, leaving Dutchie just waking up on the bed with her eyes bugged out sensing something was going on. Good to keep Dutchie away, Fluff could care less.
Meanwhile the chipmunk was into the kitchen and the farthest point possible, the utility closet, AKA The Cat Box Room. It reached panic mode when I started to try to “help” it back out. It was clear that it was not interested in hanging around anymore. I herded it out the kitchen. From there it spotted daylight and was back out the door.
That was the last I saw it.
Reminded me of The Great Desert Toad Debacle of 2004. Goodyear, Arizona. Toad came in and got stuck in my Lazy Boy.
But I think I told that story.
JoeKentucky was stationed in Guam during WW2. GUAM!
