From the Wolf Den: I'm Me and Nobody Else

How we've worked so hard to get here. Being Wolf, all day and all the time, is not easy.
I called him yesterday to check in from southeast Alaska, where Yukon and Bear and I are still ferrying around the Inside Passage.

Wolf was doing his morning chores, washing dishes along with another kid. He took a time-out to tell me that he wanted to get some clothes for school. Of course he does, and I said I'd help him take care of that when I got up there.

"Uhhh, well..."

I found this fascinating.

"What's wrong?" I asked.

"Well, nothing, exactly," came the reply. "I'm just trying to find a way to say something in a way that won't sound disrespectful."

Wolf wanted to buy his own clothes.

I high-fived him over the phone.

Whoohoo! Wolf wants to buy his own clothes! Good for him. I trust all is going well for him in his new home.

Our dream is to do the Alaska ferry trip in Southeast Alaska, up the coast and around to Cordova and across the Sound to Whittier. Someday if we can find the bucks. I'm anxious to hear about your trip.
