Fall is here

Well, Fall is here. Weve had out first freeze up and things change when that happens. Its sure to fluctuate, but the temps will get the Caribou moving and the berry picking will end....so does picking the last of the greens out there till next June.
Time to blast Ducks and Geese too, before they are gone till next May, as well , gotta get ready to set nets under the ice as usuall.
The wife and son might get a couple more Seals after the river freezes, and park the boat down at Kotzebue till Spring. The Second Son is in Kotz getting in some schooling, and hes an expert spear chucker.
Were ready for Caribou now, were outta here for a few days soon as a pard shows up tomarrow and the kids get a couple days off from formal education.

Well, in the last couple weeks , weve been busey, making food, $$ and paying bills....and yet another month looms ~~LOL!!~~

Rainy Days

The Oldest Daughter, Tinmiaq, has been thinking to up and fly away.
Currently shes decided to pass the weekend making crafts to sell, while it pours outside, and we stay in, and keep the nets out as the high water makes hell snaggin' junk that nets love soooo much...
Shes got a couple three Wolves to wack and sew, if she's serious, and just before Winter too, I bet she sells 'em quick.
Anyway, she seems to have made a couple, and looks to get 250$ to 300$ each at get airfare to move to my Mom in SE Ak....... and school there.




Carol plucking Ducks, liking it or not.....
A Scrim Agnes made a couple days ago, with some Ivory we got this summer. Traded this to a Teacher, who sent for outboardparts, a great trade.
Heres Tin making her Ruffs, Figured I d try to load a short clip. Hope it works....
