Remember, remember the 5th of November

 Celebrated Guy Fawkes Day on Friday with a bonfire at a friend's house whereupon we burned an effigy of Guy Fawkes.  This is a strange tradition but it involves fire and alcohol which have been dear friends of mine since childhood.

Jim heaves our newspaper-filled friend into the fire.
Guy Fawkes was originally hanged for his efforts, we decided to save our noose for next year.

Last night a fog rolled into the hills around Fairbanks and frosted all the trees, when the sun returns it will be stunning.  This is a beautiful time of year here because we still have light and everyone knows it's on the way out.
