Bluebird day at Alyeska!

From the Tram, view of the hotel, park and ice sheet.

Top of tram about midway up the mountain. View of Turn Again Arm Bay.

Lisa's new bunny gear.

Sunny morning, it's about 12 degrees at 1pm. High would be about 22.

1,2,3,4 I declare a Monty Python and the Holy Grail War!

Give me your best shot, I know this movie better than anyone!
Here are a couple of my favorite quotes, slightly paraphrased.

The coconut's tropical, this is a temperate zone
It could be carried.
What, by a swallow?
It could grip it by the husk.
It's not a question of where he grips it, it's a simple question of weight ratios.
A one ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut.
Listen, in order to maintain air speed velocity a swallow would have to beat it's wings 53 times every second.

Let's not bicker and argue about who killed who, this is supposed to be a happy occasion.

I'm not dead!
What's that?
Nothing. here's you ninepence.
He's says he's not dead.
Well, he will be soon he's very old.
Oh, I can't take him like that.
Aw well do it as a favor.
I can't it's against regulation.
Well can you wait around a moment he won't be long....
I feel happy
Well isn't there something you can do.
I think I'll go for a walk
Oh thanks very much,
no problem see you on thursday.

Who are you then?
I am your king
Oh yeah, well I didn't vote for you.
