A journalist observes life in the far north.

I’m a star

Alaskan Abroad posted a picture of me and Lucky. Alaskan Abroad is a blogger and former co-worker. He’s probably one of the first Alaska journalists to blog seriously. He gets about 1,000 hits a day so I feel like a star. He is visiting Fairbanks from Washington DC, where he is pretending to be a pundit for practical reasons. We sat across from each other for awhile when he worked at my paper a couple of years ago. The picture on his blog was taken last night at a bbq in his honor. I was a proud mom when I put Lucky down on the grass and she crawled over to where the big kids (ages 3 and up) were playing and joined in. I think that’s pretty cool for a 10-month-old. The picture to the left was taken over the weekend.

I had plans to go with some other moms to the beach today but I scrapped them to get a close look at a solar car. A Canadian has driven one to Fairbanks from Buffalo, N.Y. I am covering the press conference in about two hours. I plan to hoist Lucky on my back and write the story this afternoon during her nap. I’ll try to get a picture with Lucky and the car if it’s not too cheesy. It looks like a spaceship and caused quite a commotion coming into town yesterday.

    I looked on the blog but did not find the picture you referenced.
    Jade sure seems to be an independent child, and gorgeous of course.
