A friend of a friend

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.

Instagram pictures

So a while back we had our portfolio on Zenfolilo, that cost over $100 a year, since our return on that was almost non existent, we cancelled that. since then we have displayed some of our pictures on Instagram, here is the link to it. If your looking for pictures of cruise ships, Alaska sunrise or sunsets, totem poles, eagles, black bears, or some travel pictures let us know. Trying to make it so that people can order digital copies of our pictures, without the watermarks, to use as they see fit or just to print and display.

Bears

So we just finished another E-Book. This one is a picture book of black bears that are seen in and near Ketchikan Alaska. Many people travel as tourists to Ketchikan every year, most want to see black bears in the wild. Some get a chance to see them, many do not. Seeing them depends on the tide and the time of the day as well as bears can’t tell time, so they show up when they want. This book is a combination of many years, just waiting until they arrive.

Time for some games

While many of us have extra home time, it’s a good time to play some games, here are a few game designs with a few of our pictures. Please click on each image to learn more about it. Thank you.
