I hope you find these photos as gorgeous as I did.  My thanks to Marty for sending them to me.

Humor --

A man walks into a bar with a slab of asphalt under his arm, and says: "A beer please, and one for the road."

I went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day, but I couldn't find any.

I went to a seafood disco last week...And pulled a mussel.


  1. Dahlias in Alaska--who knew? I knew about the fireweed (4th picture) because a friend who loves Alaska sent me a postcard and I have tons of the stuff behind my house which means I'm always pulling it out around here. Of course I'm not doing that with views of snow capped mountains.

  2. I was thinking zinnias in Alaska! But you're right, LynnM, those are dahlias. (Zinnias like a dryer environment than that looks like.) I have a friend who once sent me a postcard from Alaska of a grizzly bear leaning on a sign warning of grizzly bears past this point.

  3. My youngest brother and his wife (and my niece Maddie) moved to a town east of Anchorage. He and his wife will be teaching. He has loved Alaska since the first time he visited, and I am very glad he was able to make the choice to try living there :-}

  4. Alison, if they are dahlias (and I think we're both right) those tubers would HAVE to be lifted, wouldn't they? I can't imagine they'd survive sustained frozen soil. That's a LOT of digging in spring.

  5. I know I'm obsessing but I found this:

    Seems they're low on the list of Urban Moose Food. HAHAHAHAHAHA.
