Friday The 13TH

Happy Friday The 13TH. (cue dramatic music...duh, duh, duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.) Most people seem to be a little intimidated by this day. They seem to think it brings bad luck and chaos. Personally, we seem to have the best luck on Friday the 13th (duh, duh, duhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.) I think you find your luck where you look for it. Kind of a cup half full versus cup half empty sort of thing. The Iditarod is cruising along at a steady pace. Lance Mackey is currently in first place. The closest musher was about three hours behind him. So far, three mushers have dropped out. This is a tough race, and a dangerous one. One of the scratchers, Bjornar Andersen from Norway, was seriously injured in a bad accident in the Buffalo Tunnels. They suspect internal injuries. They are only a little over half way through the race. If interested, you can check out the official Iditarod website. There is a link on the right side of this page.

I hope you all enjoy your lovely Friday the 13Th (duh, duh, duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh) and make the most of it. Buy a lottery ticket. You never know...

where did you take the bear picture? Doesn't that ruff on his neck mean he's upset?

They lowered the status on Redoubt from orange to yellow. Things have quieted down, and they are just keep an eye on it. Hopefully it will stay that way. On the bear, I took the pic at a wildlife conservation area. This bear wasn't angry at me. It was irritated by it's sibling who was inching closer to try and get the salmon.
