Readers of Two Wheels North know that Vic amd Ray carried with them a small figurine of a "Billiken," the mascot of the Alaska Pacific Yukon Exposition. Their Billiken survived a number of mishaps, including being briefly stolen. Sadly, its fate is unknown--both Vic and Ray in later life assumed that the other had the Billiken, but neither did.
We learned this year when we met Evelyn that she, also, did not have a Billiken. Well, we have taken car of that. The US Postal Service yesterday delivered one to her, courtesy of Wheels North.
The Billikens are starting to return home, and we look forward to carrying ours back to Seattle after his 100-year absence next year.
