It's been kind of a funny week. Most of the time we think we live in civilization, but every once in a while we are reminded that we live remote.

-Sitka is only accessible by boat or plane, therefore it's very expensive to get anything or anyone here. Mr. Adams recently had to Fed-X something to Dallas, TX and they charged him $360. He says that he could have bought it a seat on the plane and fed it peanuts all the way to Dallas cheaper than that!
-Our local grocery store ran out of milk this week. When they are out of milk they are out of milk and we have to wait until the next barge comes in before we can get some more.
-There's a Brown Bear living in our neighborhood. (that's an extra large grizzly bear for those of you that didn't know)
-Our house is located just far enough from town that our cell reception is sketchy. Often I have to stand by the back door or lean my head against the window in the livingroom window to be able to talk on the phone!
It's funny....you'd think we live in Africa or something!
