Q. What are some bad things about Alaska? My mother is wanting to move there and I don’t want her to do so. -Fred
A. Fred, you bad boy! You have stumped the expert! You aren’t going to like this, but I can’t think of ANY bad things! I’m serious, guy! You didn’t say how old your mother is. Is she able to get around pretty good? Has she always been an adventuresome sort, or maybe wanting to be one? Either way, she’ll like it here.
If your mom is a senior citizen, well, there are an awful lot of us up here! Some folks ‘wimp out’ and go south for their golden years, but not me. Alaska is good to its citizens and its seniors.
I suppose if she hates cold weather, she might not want to come…..but we do have stoves and warm clothing up here. I suppose if she loathes mosquitoes, she might hesitate….but they only last for about 6 weeks and there are solutions to them. (see the archives for that subject).
Does she still work? Is she retired? Tell me a little more. Or better yet, have her tell me. If you dare! (heh heh) She can reach me by e mail at firstname.lastname@example.org Now, be a man, Fred, and give her my addy and trust her to do the right thing. You could always come too you know? Take care, Bonnie J.
