This particular photo never ceases to amaze me. And although I’ve used it before in various and sundry other posts, I am compelled to bring it to the forefront yet again…in response to this week’s Word Press photo challenge…surprise!!!
That’s Sitka, named after a charming Alaskan village. I was there once, as a voyager on a Holland America Alaskan cruise.
A year later, 9/11 happened. The following day I adopted Sitka from the local Humane Society, along with his brother Juneau, also a namesake for a town in Alaska.
These two are daily reminders of both…the best and worst experiences I’ve known…cruising the glacial fjords of Alaska with 25 family members…and suffering through one of the saddest days for our country and, indeed, the world at large.
…life is…full of surprises…both good and…not so good…

Sitka was in for a surprise that day, hahaha, what a cute photo! Thanks for making me smile, Hugmamma 🙂
Have a wonderful Christmas, my dear, and all the best in the new year.
I wasn’t expecting to see such a look of surprise on his face. I’m surprised, actually, every time I view the photo. ha, ha. Take care and have a jolly, holly, happy holiday. Extra hugs, dear friend. 😆
Sitka does look a little scary, doesn’t he? 🙂
