There are Girls in Kodiak!

Pulling the anchor on a Fast-Topic-Changing-Friday.

First up, I’ll get the title of this post explained. I’m a fan of the Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch, a show about crab fishing off the coast of Alaska. I like it because I grew up around that stuff in Kodiak. As dangerous and crazy as crab fishing is, the whole thing is very familiar to me. And every now and then I’ll see someone who I’m pretty sure I remember.

There is a new captain on the show, named Big Daddy, who is from Kodiak.

Well, I’m not there anymore, so there is one less girl in Kodiak…

I’m sure she’ll have a future of making crab fishermen want to stay ashore in 20 years or so. Currently, she’s too busy smearing yogurt everywhere.

Since Malabrigo is almost impossible to get, and everyone wants to make a Featherweight Cardi, this can be considered a public service announcement.

His ideas included disembowelment.

Have a great weekend!

  3. I saw your post on Brat Chat and decided to check out your website. Did your Abe come from Texas about 2 years ago? I think I have his brother Buster. I hope things with Tippy look up soon. Thanks for a good read. -Tara
