From Photo Friday, the theme for their weekly photography contest is modern life.

As much as I would like to offer up a picture of Rocko, I will instead offer this story.

Over this summer, the Mannski Unit was able to enjoy a cruise around Alaska’s Inside Passage. To give the trip an international flavor, the boat made a stop in Victoria, British Columbia (which would be in Canada). Sadly, we were only in this beautiful port city for four hours. I wish we could have stayed longer in this locale because there seemed to be a multitude of fascinating tourist places. Perhaps later, I will show pictures of the city’s iconic flower baskets, but for now, I give you this photo of the interesting, modern times we live in when there can be an advertisement for something like this…

My apologies for not posting in some time, but I have been out and about for the past week. It is summer and that screams vacation time so the family and I are taking this opportunity to wing our way back to the United States.

I am currently in Virginia checking on the ol’ homestead and making sure our tenats have not burned it to the ground (which is expressly forbidden in our lease).

Before arriving in the Old Dominion and in celebration of my parent’s 55th wedding anniversary, they treated my family and the families of my siblings to a cruise that took us through the Inside Passage of Alaska.

For the theme provided by Photo Friday, which was “dog“, I offer up a close-up cute-up photo of a sled dog puppy that we saw in Skagway, Alaska, as part of an excusrion.
