Saturday already? Another week has flashed by and it brings us closer to the end of another year. I am looking forward to the longer days. I gets dark so early. I tried to rememberhow early it turned dark in the north. Well, I know it was early, especially in Alaska. So, the shortest day is coming towards the end of this month and then we start the other way. With no city lights to see in the late afternoon, it is just dark. Dark! But that will change, and we will be welcoming a new season.
