I'm having problems with the app my blog uses. My only access to the Internet is by a tablet and the signal is sporadic and weak. Unfortunately, the app is confounded by this combination. I've got technical help trying to straighten out some of the problems, such as dead end categories and the wrong pictures replacing the ones that suit a story. (The app, all on its own, went in and changed them.)
You might see some older posts suddenly jumping to the fore as we work on the problems. I will continue to work on posts to have them ready to insert as soon as possible. These include posts on Robert Service (the poet, or Alaskan Balladeer); telephones in the bush; denizens from another world; more skiff adventures; and a guest blog by my sister.
In the meantime, I thought you might enjoy more of my mom's coloring. Hopefully the app doesn't try to exchange them for unrelated photos!
Thank you for your patience and support. Blogging from the bush is turning out be a challenge--but a rewarding one! All of your comments and encouragement are very much appreciated.
