Summer Solstice, It was a good night!!!

First this year my Daughter turned 23 on the Summer Solstice. It is the perfect day of the year to have a baby girl. She is a ray of sunshine in my life.
(Nancy, Della, Stephanie, Jessica, Baby Hamlin, Linda, Lorraine, Diana, Katlyn, Patty, me and Terry)
Then my friends Nancy and Lorraine had comploted the perfect goodbye party at the Glacier Brewhouse private room. So eleven of us partied hard for a long time. They spoiled me with nice words, good food, good wine, beautiful flowers, a gorgeous whale bone native mask
, but it is the friendship that those women have given me for so many years that has made my life so fabulous here in Alaska without them I would have been a lost soul. Few of them (Denise, Ruth, Jennifer, Kathlyn, Pat, Debbie, Gail and Janie, I know I am forgetting some at the moment) could not present but are in my heart and found ways to be with us anyway. They have all helped me put my roots deep in the grown and those are going to be hard to pull because of them. So a huge thank you for friends in my life in Alaska. I love you all so much and will miss "hanging out" with you. Thank you. this is Bill
Five of us finished the evening with a double horse carriage ride downtown.

I hate that you have to leave here.
You will be missed. I hope to see you down at the show in Seattle some time!
