Martha2 February 2010I’m tickled pink over this year’s Yukon Quest.  You all know Hans Gatt broke the record and finished the race in just 9 days and 26 minutes.  Odd thing is, what were the chances that two other mushers would also break the finish record?  And what about a 1,000 mile race and only 2 teams stratching?  I’d say we’re surrounded by athletes that rate right up there with  Olympians.  And by golly, I like doing it the Alaskan way!  I’ve been rootin’ for that young man from Fort Yukon, Josh Cadzow, for years.  Congrats on receiving the Rookie Award– keep up the good work!

Keep that snow a-coming down.  We need it for the Open North American which is just a few weeks away.  And while we’re waiting for that and more outside fun, we’ve been busy as beavers inside the store getting gussied up for spring.  You’ll need to come by to see what the staff put out this week-new scarves that appeal to your arty side, books, stuffed animals, bright new bath fizzies (I’m about ready for a bath this time of year), handbags, and lots more.  Come on by–it’s a party!
