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.
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!!
