Email is a treat. Blogs are great. Skype is fun. With all this new technology we’re hearing from lots of people in many different ways and enjoying every moment of it. Of course there’s still regular old mail, too.

At least once a week we’ve got something to get excited about showing up in P O Box 115.

Today we saw these guys out on the river; four–can you spot them all? There’s a snowmachine out there too, but it’s behind some ice. When we took our all-school walk/hike on Friday, one of the high school kids told us that eventually the snow will fill in all that rough ice and snowmachines will use it like a highway. That’s not happening yet.

This week a very, very special get well wish to Dick!
And finally, at Anna’s request, here’s a little something…
