I have many things to write about but can't seem to get to them. Perhaps there are too many and that is the problem. Also, we are involved in discussions about going as a family to Grand Canyon for Thanksgiving. Chris will be coming from Norway, JA from Nome, etc. Very exciting.
Speaking of JA, he is discouraged by his coworkers simply not showing up for work. Apparently, this lack of work ethic is not uncommon in Nome. He has said quite clearly that he could offer a job to someone who would simply show up five days a week. So if you have some job-seeking person willing to join the adventure of living in Nome - there are downsides and inconveniences, but it is one of those great-in-the-biography things - point them toward Nome. Contact me, if you want.
