Bob's back in Kodiak! Bob was an archaeological fixture on Kodiak from 1997 through 2003. He joined us every summer for the dig season and generally stayed at our house. But he has not been back since. Yesterday I picked up Bob and his friend Matt at the airport in the pouring rain, and drove back into town. Bob pointed out all the things that have changed in the last 6 years. Wow! It's been 6 years!
Bob had never seen the new windmills, eaten at the powerhouse, met our new dog jake, seen our new addition, or experienced our house with kids. I did not realize how much had happened in 6 years. It certainly does not seem like Bob has been away all that long. I guess as I get older time starts to fly faster.
Due to the weather, cancelled flights etc - Bob was not able to give his talk last night at the Museum. But it has been rescheduled for Saturday at 3:30 PM at the Museum with dinner afterwards at the KI. See you there. Also don't forget that tonight is the showing of the Radical Reels film fest at the Auditorium. Tickets go on sale at 7PM. Patrick
