Two Tries of Tysabri

So I've tried this M.S. drug Tysabri twice now. It is given through an IV in Las Anchorage once a month. It sure beats the shots I've been doing everyday for the past few years. Although the drug is aimed at prevention instead of recovery, I have heard of several cases of patients actually getting better after six months or more of this drug. I also hear rumors of a new oral medication for MS! Take a pill, MS goes away. NICE (pipe dream)

Snow be flying soon, can't wait to ride!

Roses are Red,

Violets are Blue,

Happy B-Day little sister,

thinking of you.

Don't know how old you are,

can't add that high,

but I'm feeling kind of smart,

so I'll give it a try,

I know your younger than me,

by a year or to,

so when I punch in the numbers,

it comes out,


happy B-day

half a year

Boy...68 degrees at 9am in the "cosmic hamlet by the sea"
The next three days host some of the lowest tides of the year! Food scrounging on the beach may lead to a full belly!? Or maybe just a belly full!
Softball team scored 18 runs last night and beat the combined Oiler/Nads for the first time this season. The last three games we have scored 78 runs to our oponents 14. Knock on wood I hope the bats stay hot for the Firecracker tourney this weekend in Kenai. We will be spotting some of the teams (most of them) up to eight runs.

river enforcement

I heard a story yesterday I had to share;
I young local guy I know, who is a frequent spit hole fisherman, was on the Anchor the last weekend of king season. He had a rough season also, as you all know about the pitiful runs everywhere. Anyway, he's down in the tide zone fishing with the scumbags, in there hole. After stoping fishing four or five time so other fisherman could play and exhaust their snagged kings, he wandered downriver, where he came across another young man who had just successfully landed a spawned out steelhead. The fish layed on the rocks, while the guy yelled for his buddy to "get the camera!" Kyle asked the guy to return the fish to the water and release it. The guy mumbled at him, and proceed to get his pliers out to begin surgery on the poor fish. Kyle got mad--Told the guy in a loud angered voice that he was gonna drown him, then release his fish. The guy being angered and scared turned his fish loose, and left the river. Kyle went back to fishing. Half hour later the guy comes back, with four big buddies, and they wanted to fight!
Fortunately Kyle had buddies to, fishing around him that had witnessed the earlyier ordeal. The fight turned out to be a shouting match, and the five gangsters, were outnumbered by the fifty fisherman in that hole. Thank god they moved on instead of coming back again with machine guns! We thought Cambell creek was a tough place to fish!

Season Summary

sixteen sleepless nights,
Three lousy little bites.
If I could do it again,
I would surely sleep in!
The season was not a total loss,
saw a Brown Bear on the river,
almost gave my cookies a toss,
he was born free, and running loose,
I'm sure he was thinking about baby moose.
on the last day, we fished at the bridge,
we didn't know,
we were being watched from the ridge.
When Jimmy caught the only fish of the day,
A large majestic eagle wanted to play,
He swooped down with all his might,
(gave us all quite a fright)
and took Jimmy's fish--into the night.
2008 King Salmon season
in the books

Ode to King Salmon

I've seen them out there,

I've been casting all night.

I wish I could catch one,

and feel the thing fight.

As I stand in the river,

I hear the birds sing,

It remindes me of a time,

when I once caught a King!!

Just wait till next year!!
