Happy 4th of July!

85 degrees in Fairbanks today! Clear sky, lots of sun and hot. I love it! Campground is completely full and my overflow lot is filling up quickly. The minute I sit down, somebody needs quarters for laundry while another is pulling in looking for a site. We have tried putting a sign on the door of our trailer, 'Host-Not On Duty' at 9:00 p.m., but have learned that either people don't read, or more than likely, they truly just don't care....because sign or no sign, they WILL knock on our door. At 7:00 a.m., 1:15 a.m., 11:00 p.m...doesn't matter. We have learned to accept that we pretty much do not have a personal life this summer. Not to say none of it is enjoyable, because some of it is. We've met some really nice people from all over the globe, and it's fun to listen to them talk about where they're from.

We have the tadpole boys staying here, the butterfly man, the bird guys, the taxi drivers, the freeloaders, the down on their luck couples, and last, but not least, the tourists.

Since arriving here, we have been given a case of latex gloves (from the bird guys), a 5 gallon gas can (from the butterfly man), a roll of bubble wrap (from ?), a book about women that travel, halibut, salmon, and a crank for the extensions on a motorhome.

Good help is hard to find! We are on the second set of people to clean the bathrooms and laundry room. The first one I fired, because she simply was not cleaning. The second one is completely undependable. They do a great job when they show up, but are they going to show up today??
Time to go. Gotta run some more.
