Images from the [almost] Frozen North

Finally, after many months (due to a broken camera and lost memory card) we've received photos from the Elder Bubba D! I tried to download a video of his one-year shirt-burning, but after an inordinate amount of time waiting to download, I gave up, so we'll have to settle for a few snapshots of his life captured in seconds.
His artwork.......

Where on earth is he?
Well, of course, near Fort Richardson.  He was here to pay tribute to our fallen heroes. One of them who passed recently, a member of the Church.
Well, for heaven's sake-there's a Wally World!
Hmmm, does that mean they can drive 54 miles per hour?
Assorted wildlife.  He took a video of this baby moose and I heard him say, "wonder where the mama is?"  Good question Elder, watch out for that mama!
And that's about it. Mostly videos, of which Blogger will not upload.
At least I can picture where he is.
And we heard his voice!

Pictures are always fun to get from missionaries!! It looks fairly warm in those pictures (warm being a relative term). Won't this be his second winter there?

I love that you call him Elder Bubba D. Ha Ha
It is always so good to hear from the missionary - Do they understand how mom's crave those words and pictures and video's and any communication at all?? What a good boy!!!

Fantastic artwork. I am always so impressed with artistic ability because I pretty much can't even get a stick figure right.

And it is nice to see through your missionary's artwork that he is focusing on the right during his mission....the Savior of mankind.

Love the art! Thanks for rememering and honoring. It looks coooold. He's way, way to close to that baby moose! Geese are fun to watch but boy do they make big messes!

Momza, I think with this blog there are only about 4 degrees of seperation. That is fun!
