Erica is in the hospital waiting for surgery to have her gall bladder removed. And I am home alone with Autumn. Not that Autumn isn't cute, but I'm happier when Erica is at home.

It has been quite a week here.

I've been doing aerial surveys for big game on the res. No, I don't hunt, never have, probably never will, but it is part of my job.

We've been flying in a nice little helicopter, which, if you haven't done it, is remarkably tiring, even if you don't get air sick.

The plan was to cover about 500,000 acres in 5 days. And then it snowed. So, today was postponed. And then Erica went into the hospital, and an BIA (Bureau of Indian Affairs) man that the Natural Resources Program works with a lot died of cancer. So I will probably end up working this weekend too.


Oh...I posted some knife stuff over on Hangedmandesigns too.

Erica's surgery should be pretty minor, a couple little holes in the tummy, some R&R, and she should be able to skate in the tournament up near Seattle next month.

She's hard core.

And I love her.


  1. I hope you'll post that she is home and ok a.s.a.p. too :-)

    Looks fun doing the aerial "hunting".

    {{hugs}} to Erica!

  2. I hope everything goes well with the surgery!
    Tell her the EtsyBloggers wish her the best of luck :)
    Enjoy your time with Autumn :)

  3. Wish Erica well from me :)

    Hope her recovery is quick and restful.

    I'm very jealous you get the fly around taking photos but a plane would be more fun :) T.
