Living in SE Alaska can be challenging at times, many places wont’t ship their products to Alaska without charging lots for shipping. We do have a hospital in Ketchikan, but for major things it’s often better either to fly toSeattle (1 hr 40 min) or to fly to Anchorage (about a 5 hr flt). The other day my wife said that she was having trouble with one of her eyes, so I called the local eye clinic, explained that she had a area of blackness in her sight of one eye. They wanted her in to the clinic instantly. About a half hr later we were there, they did an exam and said that she had a tear in her retina and needed emergency surgery or would loose vision in that eye. A friend at our church made a phone call to her friend and explained the situation, turns out that our friend’s friend also went to church and believed in the same Bible that we do. This friends friend picked us up in Anchorage at the airport, took us to my wife’s eye exam appointment, her and her husband opened their house to us, as if we had been friends all our lives. My wife’s surgery was scheduled a few days later as they didn’t do surgery over the weekend. The husband of my wife’s friend friend took us to the surgery place today. I am writing this from the surgery waiting room, as my wife is in surgery now. It has been said that you don’t know what you don’t know, which is true, but I would like to change it, you don’t know your friends friends often, but when you have a chance they can be a true answer to prayers and the strength and blessing that you may need in times of distress, times of trials and troubles. I also believe maybe when FB started that’s why it would recommend your friends friend as a possible friend to you. If you get a change meet some of your friends friends expand your people circle, there are many good people out there.

My wife and I have been married almost 36 years. My wife just finished (and published on Amazon) her first E-Book. It’s called “Reflections” and it’s a book about thinking about life, what God offers to us and what we offer back to Him. It is wrote from a Christian woman’s viewpoint.
The wildlife experience near Denver
A fun place near Denver is the “Wildlife Experience”. It has a lot of beautiful statues both indoors and out.
There is lots of taxidermy animals as well as interactive things for kids.
We spent several hours here just walking around looking at things.
It’s a great place for photography as well.
The location is: 10035 S Peoria St, Parker CO. To contact them the phone number is (303) 315-9444. The cost I believe was $12 for adults and $8 for kids 3-12. So if your in the area, check it out.
Uncle Bucks Fish bowl
So recently visited “Uncle Buck’s Fish Bowl” in Colorado Springs CO. It was a fun place and a nice atmosphere. Guess it’s owned by BassPro sporting goods store. Also heard that they have them in various places across the states.
Very fun and friendly for families with kids, or just a nice place to hang out at. Also check out Groupon to possibly find deals or specials.
