Hello to my Nikiski neighbors.
"Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter." Mark Twain
I recently celebrated another birthday and found the quote to be fitting.
This time of year is one of my favorites, with the beautifully colored leaves even the rain has been tolerable. The last bit of vegetables has been picked from many gardens and I have talked to many Nikiski residents gearing up to make jelly with area berries.
