It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas (#1)

Kodiak, uncut! (#3)


 
Call me crazy. But I love Christmas in Alaska. The snow. The chill. The Alpenglow. It's part of our "Big Wild Life" and all that. Our adventures in the winter take on a completely different complexion (duh.). That's NOT to diminish the allure of the beach in Maui. Oh NO NO NO. But here at Chez McMurren, we've got the tree up (after several heated discussions…HA). There's choir practice coming up for Christmas Eve for our Gospel Groove group. We're trading cookies and pies with family and loved ones. It's a wonderful time of year. 
 
Every community, of course, has its special events and traditions. I was on the phone earlier today with Marion Owen, one of my dear friends from Kodiak. Check out her report. 
 
Well, I guess you have about three hours to scoop up Alaska's latest web specials from this week's "Club49". I've detailed the offers HERE. Great bargains for folks headed to Chicago
 
Oh, are you listening to our radio show? We gave away some GREAT prizes last Tuesday. And co-host Erin Kirkland is warming up for a EPIC show next Tuesday. She's ousted me from the Captain's Chair. She and musical guest  Marian Call are taking over the studio to…you'll love this….give stuff away. THE NERVE. Tune in. Erin and Marian…they are a riot!!

There's MORE! Order now and get FREE SHIPPING (U.S. addresses) between now and Dec. 24, 2011. Luvin' it.
 
Don't miss the AWESOME vacation roundup from USTravel. I love my travel agent. She's really wonderful. A cruise? No problem. A car rental? Piece of cake. Bargain air ticket? She's there for me. Check out the deals. Then, call Kelly Jo, Rhonda, or one of the folks in Anchorage. Or call them in Fairbanks, Kodiak, Dutch Harbor, Ketchikan…they're all over.
