    A bit hesitant to call the thread "photo a day". Last year it went to pot, starting with Photobucket blocking all my pictures, demanding $500 per year "ransom" if I wanted to post them.

    Let's see what I can do this year.

    Hot damn! Another Spinner photo thread. Please don't feel pressured - just post when you can. Heck we'll enjoy them all the more because there will be that feeling of suspense!

    Here is a couple of interesting pictures of Cassidy skinning a deer for the first time. She did it from start to finish. An excellent skill to have in Alaska. She wants to go to a hunt with her dad this autumn.

    I have yet to find a site from which I can save/print pics on the internet which hasn't put a fee on their services. Good luck Spin!

    Watched this WindSurfer for a while. He covered a large area fast. His dog followed him running back and forth onshore. It was blustering cold with winds of 25mph and strong gusts . .

    I was at a party in Anchorage this evening when a friend told me to go check out the sunset. It was beautiful.
