So glad you are "back in the saddle".

Hey, keep your camera posted by the back door so you can share a bear shot with us! How amazing!

Hope the dust continues to settle and you (and the cats!) find a new normal.

Congratulations on your new house!!! Nice to hear all is well!! Looks like everyone likes the new "digs"!!! :-)

Glad to see you're back! I blogged about you yesterday: http://scrapsbystephanie.blogspot.com/2011/09/skagway-in-afternoon.html. So sorry I missed you when I was there!

Hi Alison, I knew you would be back after cruise season. I would be freaking about the mice. Lots of interesting things around your house, black bears and train siren alarm clock. The quilting may be delayed because of remodeling. I'm so glad to hear from you again.

Love your cat (and other random animal) stories! I visited Skagway once (sorry - I was one of those noisy intrusive train-riding tourists...) and really really liked it. My dad's dad was in Skagway some time in the early 1900s for the gold rush. Haven't quite tracked him down yet. Love the beautiful scenery you show. Good luck with the remodeling and hope all the mice find new homes somewhere else.

Welcome back!! I check your blog everyday and was pleasantly surprised to see you wrote!!! The scenery pics are gorgeous. The bear and mice stories are not so much fun. Well they make good reading but not good experiencing. Looking forward to seeing remodel pics and quilting pics.

I am glad to see the cats have adjusted well...and that you are back to blogging! Happy day for me! (although it'd be happier if you'd come on down south already)


I agree - glad to see you back. I check at least once a week to see if you have a new post because they are always so interesting to read. we sometimes have to deal with mice as well - but it was the snake in the bathroom this summer that put me over the edge! my husband's daughter said snakes are good for catching the mice (thanks but no thanks!!) never did find the snake again. maybe i scared him to death! looking forward to your next post!

Hi Alison! I knew it was tourist season there and that you were in full glory of the job you love. You have really had a crazy summer with tourist season and the move....time to breath I'd say! I'm looking forward to hearing more about your home and surrounding area...because of you I keep telling hubby I want to see Alaska and he wonders why all the sudden I have interest there. I tell him about your photos and stories of bears and such! Hugs...

Hi Alison - great to see you back...I kept checking in all summer...just in case! I can't imagine having bears snuffling around my house all night - wow! I LOVE the sound of Alaska....one day I'll make it there!!

It's great to see you back, Allyson and your pictures are wonderful! Best of luck with that home remodeling. I'll be out here lurking and waiting to see this winter's quilting (and some remodeling pix as well). Don't suppose you can just put those pesky mice out on the deck by the bird feeder - maybe Mr. Bear would like a little protein? Oh, yuck, now that I've typed that I am doing a full body shiver :o)

That's a very full summer, cats, trains, bears, boxes, birdseed, and remodeling. I can't fault you for not throwing blogging in there too! Hope things get sorted soon and you can return to your regular programming :)

I'm so glad you're back! I really enjoy reading your blog - you have wonderful humour in your writing. It sounds like you've had a busy and full summer. Moving to a new house is such an adventure! Just take it one day at a time now and all will get done.

Glad you are back! I missed hearing from you :-) Your posts and pictures are always wonderful. Happy new house to you!!

I wish I were there to help remodel...a lot of work, but so much fun. I can't wait to hear more about all your projects.

Glad that you are back .....

Hubby and I were in Skagway once (arrived on the ferry) and caught the train up the pass to continue on our voyage.

Bears and mice .... yikes!

Oh, goody. You are back. I've missed you all summer. Can't wait to see your remodeling projects and hear all about your new digs.

I have to admit that I have been checking on this on a regular basis...nice to have you back. Your writing is so wonderful...I chuckled at the image of Tigger with the mouse in his jaws, and I could just picture Butter defending the entrance to the litterbox! I figured you had taken a summer hiatus from writing...and especially with a new home too, it's a wonder you even had time to feed the cats.

love and hugs from Sitka...jane

OMG that is terrific! I love your work! Guess I am not as contemporaneous as your regular subscribers! I swear I have fallen in love with this blog... Breathtaking writing! You're an outstanding and talented person, keep up the individuality :)
