Sorry we haven't been around the last couple of days. As we said last week, Mom had to go up to Oregon. She and our Papa (grandpa) drove up there on Thursday, and came home on Saturday. Mama's grandpa died, and they went to his funeral. Mom said he was a wonderful man who was one of the first homesteaders of Alaska. He lived a great life. She got home late Saturday, and spent Sunday resting. We missed her, but were well taken care of. We are trying to get caught up with all of you, and will be around to visit you all as soon as we can.
