Boys sneak away, try to heist 1957 Corvette; As of this afternoon, I am gone




Lavina had to be at work at 8:00 AM today, which meant we would have had to leave for Anchorage by about 6:30 to be assured we would have time to buy a McDonald's egg McMuffin breakfast along the way and still get there in time for Margie to babysit Lynx. This made no sense for us, as I must catch the 4:30 PM flight for Barrow and my time will be much better spent here than it would be in Anchorage.

So this afternoon, Jacob brought Lynx to the house so he could spend the night with us and then go back home with Margie after she drops me off at the airport. Kalib and Jobe came, too. Then they disappeared. They are never supposed to be in my office without an adult, but my office seemed to be the only place they could have gone. I checked. Sure enough, I found them - and up to no good, either!

That's a 1957 Corvette they are teaming up to heist

See the beautiful woman waving from the frame at the upper left? That's Margie - their grandma - and that's baby Jacob, Dad to these two boys, whom she is holding.

I ushered them back into the house. Soon, Kalib shot no holes in one.












Here is Lynx, come to spend the night with us. His world has been turned upside down.




















Jake and the big brothers only stayed for a couple of hours. On the way to the car, Kalib stopped to try to catch rain water in his mouth.
























Then he dipped his head right into the place where the water streamed off the roof.

Then they drove away. I do not expect to see them again for somewhere between two and four weeks.

Beautiful photos, beautiful family. Tell Margie she was/is indeed a very beautiful woman with very beautiful children and grandchildren, as you pointed out to everyone. I'm sure there is an equally dashing photo of you--unless you were always taking photos, not posing for them--from those days. Keep getting well and enjoy making the most of your new adventure.
