No faces

Six graders at Polk Elementary School made Egyptian "death masks" by applying plaster strips to their faces...and waiting for the plaster to dry. It was an interesting experiment in sensory-deprivation for the kids.

Mooch returns

Georgia, a self-proclaimed "cat lady" came and took Mooch and his girlfriend (the stray cats that live around our building) to get shots and get fixed. She kept them for a couple weeks until they were recovered and returned them to us. Mooch is happy as Larry to be back.

Mr. Samsa greets me in the morning in Alan's bathroom, the gypsies prepare for Punk Rock Prom, some way too hip girls and Zach and Sonia are lit bright red (it was the only light at the prom), and Guido contemplates Jesus at a late night Frontier visit.

My family is pretty great.

On the beach in Talkeetna:

...And some guy, probably a model for Calvin Klein jeans, takes photos of Denali atop trash cans.
