Smoking Salmon Postcard
I can't figure out how summer gets so busy (in a good kind of way.) Is it really July already? Papa Bob is still here, and my daughter is up from Juneau, so we are riding bikes at the crack of dawn each day, after watching the Tour de France live at 5am, and then eating and putzing it seems all day long. The good news is all this hanging around makes for relatively easy fish smoking and garden tending. My first batch of salmon is done and ready for the canner this morning. Then I have to pack for Anchorage (I leave tomorrow) and my last week in the dorms at UAA where hopefully my presentation (colloquia it is called) and thesis will be good enough to earn me an MFA in creative writing. In the meantime, here's a little post card from my backyard.
