In memory of all who served, we honor each and every one of our veterans as we celebrate Memorial Day 2018.
Memorial Day is the de-facto beginning of Summer 2018.
May your summer be the best ever.
Just the briefest touch-base here.
Oh Yes! Oh Yes Indeed!
My optimistic attitude of a week ago has proven out. I really am feeling one heck-of-a-lot better. In fact, aside from the seeming fact that this two-month bout with the ‘flu’ has taken something out of me I may never quite get back, I feel that I will be up to another trip over to Asia (Hong Kong, Mongolia, Russia) later on this year.
Thanks all of you for all of your support as I have struggled to get fully back-on-my-feet.
We are busy / busy /busy watching both the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the National Hockey League playoffs.
Later this afternoon, we will be tuned-in to Game 7 of the NBA Western Conference Finals down in Houston, Texas, as the Houston Rockets tip-off against the Golden State Warriors.
At the same time, we will also be watching Game 1 of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals between the Washington Capitals and the Las Vegas Golden Knights. Neither team has ever won the Stanley Cup so it will be fun to see who becomes a first-time winner.
I tried to upload some photos and for reasons unknown have not been able to do so. Suddenly I could.
Just North of Anchorage is the small but pleasant suburb of Eagle River, Alaska.
On Trip Advisor, Patti and I spied a small dessert shop named Avalanche Frozen Yogurt.
Nice outdoor seating for our warm summer evenings.
Into Avalanche Frozen Yogurt we walked.
Well, we were surprised that Avalanche Frozen Yogurt actually has a very nice menu of soups and sandwiches as well as sweets. They even serve breakfast. You know, with eggs and pancakes and toast and such.
At the back of the shop is a series of yogurt dispensing machines.
We served up a small, vanilla frozen yogurt and added finely-chopped-peppermint-candy pieces.
Then we got serious and served up a large chocolate and red velvet frozen yogurt, again with the finely-chopped-peppermint-candy pieces.
You pay by the weight of your bowl of frozen yogurt. Our bill was just under $15.
Looking from the rear of Avalanche Frozen Yogurt to the front of the shop.
There you have it. Eat dessert first.
