WP&YR dock shuttle driver Jim Anderson gives directions to visitors off a ship on the Railroad Dock as he whizzes by with his new red light atop his vehicle. Jeff Brady

-Heard on the Wind-

From the dock...
“I think I’m going back on board. I missed the waffles,” a man said to is wife.
“Honey, they have waffles all day.”
“Waffles, are you sure? All day? I don’t think so.”
This went on for about a minute while they waited for their tour.

From the tour shack...
“Are those real whales?”
“Where do I pick up the tour called ‘Excursion?’”

From the street....
“I understand the Gold Rush, but when did the Diamond Rush begin?”
Another commented, “Skagway should build a mall for all their shops. That would keep all the people off the boardwalk and more room to walk.”

From the gallery...
A clerk explained to a customer, “This is all mammoth ivory here.”
“Mammoths aren’t endangered, are they?” the customer asked.
“Worse, they’re extinct.”

Where there’s a party...
A ditzy local decided to have a BBQ at her house and wanted to make sure guests knew the time and details so she sent out multiple postcard invitations. She forgot to sign the cards or put where the BBQ was. One invitee guessed who the host was, but just to be sure, said he was planning on putting his lawn chair in back of his truck and driving around until he saw the likely party.

If we only knew what the question was...
Wife to her husband in the produce isle of the local grocery store: “How the bleep should I know. You’re the mayor!”

Ahhh, what a relief to have a real blow. The sun is getting to us. Grab a breath when you can and store it for the windy one...
