Dear Crabby
by Mrs. Crabcakes - Ketchikan, Alaska
Monday - July 19, 2004

This column is strictly for entertainment purposes only and
is not intended to be taken to heart as serious advice.



I've been coming to Ketchikan for several years to drive a tour bus in town, and thought you might enjoy hearing some of the silly questions the tourists ask us.

After I've just explained that this is an island: "How long does it take to drive to Anchorage from here?"

"What is the exchange rate here?"

To one of the Saxman residents that just finished saying he was a native: "So how long have you lived up here?"

After having looked up and down Front Street at all the jewelry stores, "Where are all your bears?"

After being told about the tides: "What IS the altitude here, anyway?"

On a hot, sunny, day, with no snow in sight: "Where are all the igloos?"

There are more, but these came to mind for now. I'll bet some of your readers have some good ones too. Keep up the good work.





You all speak English here very well.
