Another Day in Paradise: The secret's out
This has been a great week to walk the dogs early in the morning. The tide has been out, giving us some beautiful beach time on Mission Beach. Our little dog, Smidgeon, checks out every strip of kelp because she just knows there are some treasures there to eat. The people may tidepool for treasur...

Another Day in Paradise: An act of grace
The old adage says, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” We have all seen pictures taken by great photographers that give credence to that thought. Right here in Kodiak, we have some great photographers whose pictures are shared on the walls of the Fly-By from time to time by the Arts Council. ...

Another Day in Paradise: Keeping a schedule
I loved the commercial thirty years ago for Dunkin Donuts. “Time to make the donuts” was the slogan repeated throughout. Their basic thought was, you get them fresh no matter when you come in.

Another Day in Paradise: Finding comfort In paradise
The lyrics of the John Denver song that rang through my head were, “Oh, it’s good to be back home again.” Visiting friends and family and friends that are more like family to us than just friends is great. We got to work through a couple of our ‘bucket list’ items. We saw a dinner show that was j...
