"What?" she frowned with a puzzled look, "Watched MacGyver????? I don't know what you are talking about but MacGyver is when you turn something into something out of practically nothing. Don't you know that?"
"Oh, I see." I nodded trying not to let my expression say how old I felt at that moment, "Well, back when I was young MacGyver was a T.V. show. The main character's name was "MacGyver". He was always making something out of practically nothing. That's were that term comes from."
"Hum," she shrugged not sure if she should believe me, "Weird."
I felt like I had crossed through some: "You know you're getting older when".....rite of passage.
Meanwhile back at the ranch (stilted trailer) I'm packing for ANCHORAGE!!!! Yep, I'm off to the big city tomorrow afternoon. Haven't been out of the village that far since my arrival in August! I hope writing that down just now didn't jinx me. Watch the wind start blowing. I'm very anxious to get out, see everybody, get my hair done, eat at a restaurant and hike up some mountains! Not to mention the marathon, yikes, seriously I almost don't want to mention the marathon. But if I tell you about the race then there's more reason to finish it, hopefully. Anyway I'm still up at school right now and as my VHF always calls out "It's time to Go home." So have a great weekend everybody I'll be thinking of you from Anchorage.
