For the tender footed Alaskans, they are called Goat Heads.
My sister and I are enjoying having some time together and getting re-united. We haven't had a lot of time together as adults and have not generally kept up, just a bad habit among the Wilkinson siblings. She is older than me so she was already here when I arrived and she was the first friend I ever had and we were very close when we were young. She is working for the postal service 5 days a week and long days so there is plenty of time for getting moved in, organized and making my new start. I have integrated into the household (Miki and her husband James) fairly smoothly. I feel comfortable here and I am only frustrated to be started moving on my goals so slowly but the rest I am taking is both reasonable and wise. I am actually going to lay down for a bit when I am done here.
