Another Searcher in Need of a Hand: A “Go Fund Me” For Charissa… — Thrill Of The Chase

October 2018 by an anonymous friend Good Evening Everyone. Many people have asked how to donate (in smaller amounts) to Charissa and Marti. I spoke to Marti, and with her blessing, we created a GoFundMe for her and her sister. We discussed all the ways we can raise money for her, but those country…

And there were bears…

So (our) Intrepid moved to Alaska last year. First day of my first visit, she puts us on a float plane to the island with the highest density population of bears.

I was brave. Really. (The forest ranger and guide had their fingers on the bear spray.)

The mama bear had kicked her 2-year-olds out earlier this summer.

Another day, another trip.

I think I’ll be back.

A “Personality Galore” Hat Contest… — Thrill Of The Chase

Who doesn’t love a contest? Hats off to Dal and Forrest!

Forrest Modeling Mildew Personality Galore Hat Contest More than three years ago Forrest bragged about Mildew..his hat of dubious distinction. He declared that this hat was the most “interesting” on the blog. Shallow claim. I say. Help me prove the point by submitting a photo of your “interesting hat” to me at: dal at lummifilm…

(Shared)Fun How-To by Jeremy

MARCH 2018 by Jeremy First things first, buy the hat. You need an adventure hat. It’s non-negotiable. As soon as you put it on, you’re basically Indiana Jones already. Adventure hats vary greatly depending on how cheap you are, but let’s call this $50. I spent $20. I’m cheap. Next, buy the book. The…

Shared this winter beauty from another blog:

 

Finding beauty in the cold. I bundled up and took my camera out for a walk but the fresh window frost seemed to hold the most intrigue. It is lovely too, along the river’s edge where the water moves so fast that the cold can’t hold it still. It seems like a good time to […]

A Swab of Hope

I’m sharing my friend’s story. Please consider getting swabbed for Be the Match. What a blessing for her.

Diary Of A Not So Wimpy Mom

November 13. A date, in my mind, that will forever denote hope, faith, love and life.

Five years ago, on November 13, 2012, an amazing young woman named Megan donated her stem cells to me. Her healthy cells replaced my diseased bone marrow after a diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia, an aggressive blood cancer. She was a complete stranger to me at that time, who gave selflessly and unconditionally, simply because she knew she had the ability to save a life. Today, my five-year transplant anniversary marks an important milestone. The chance of relapse after five years is highly unlikely (that’s your cue to knock on wood). Today is my 5th “rebirthday”.
