Allakariallak and Phillipoosie

I'm not making any big statement with this one, I just think it's really fuckin cute. He's such a fierce little guy.

Here's what strikes me- here we are in our culture, doing everything we can to ensure perfect health and well-being for our babies and there was that little boy, probably raised on titty milk and whale blubber and given a real bow and arrow before he could talk and look at him! Perfect in every way.
I love him from the tip of his tiny homemade hide shoes to the top of his crazy-haired head. And so does that grandparent right there. I THINK it's a grandparent. Don't you?

Definitely someone who loves that kid.

I'm fascinated by the Inuit and Yupik peoples. Just amazing how they live where they live.

It's our adaptability that makes us the dominant life form on Earth. I'm frequently amazed by it.

That kid could kick my ass.

I bet that's his 18 year old dad. That life is rough on the skin.

Not so much with the moisturizers around there then.

They ate their moisturizers. Blubber must be good for the skin, I would think. I also second what Mama said.

That reminds me of Drew eating Dr. Pepper flavored chap stick.

i just thought that it was a shrimper from eastpoint that had given his midget grandma a bow and arrow.

"Midget Grandma: sounds like the name of a band on, say, Full House. Or Saved By the Bell.
