That someone offered to pay me to drive around the country for 9 months and experience what different parts of the country are like, no strings attached. The organization had already bought me a VW Bug to drive around in, so the catch was that I could only take with me what I could fit in the car. I cried and cried because I was so happy.

That someone gave me and/or Preston a couple big plastic sacks full of frozen fish. We didn’t know what to do with it. I thought we should can it, and I fired up the computer this morning thinking for a minute that I should look up the canning times for fish, thinking that we really had sacks of thawing fish stinking up the kitchen. It was big flakes of beautiful pink salmon and huge rainbow trout with the skin still on.
