HBO’s Best of the Local Blogs — 8/7/06

Pecky Cox/As The Lake Churns snapped this photo en route to a romantic lunch on upper Priest Lake last Aug. 31, her birthday. Don’t forget to check out her blog on happenings around Priest Lake.

*Drag queens in Coeur d’Alene on a quiet Sunday. You betcha. And Patrick/Making Flippy Floppy was there at Club Pendulum in the downtown area to file a report here.

*Frum Helen Back/Hauser Thoughts posts a “death clock” on her blog, so you’ll know when you’re going to check out here. After Sept. 1, 2021, I’ll be living on borrowed time.

*Speaking of death, Mommy Dearest/BrodH2O sez she almost checked out during her annual rafting trip, which still still rates as one of the best ever river floats, here.

*Cis Gors/From A Simple Mind, who did a knockout job subbing for Best of the Local Blogs last week, wonders why Americans are drawn to tragic movies, like “JFK,” “In Cold Blood,” etc., here.

*Councilman MikeK reminisces about Susan Butcher, the first person to win three consecutive Iditarod championships, who died Saturday here.

*CDADave/Thin Air eschews the German sausages at Art on the Green for one that was $2.50 cheeper at the Memorial Field concession stand here.

Meanwhile, Marianne spots her first ripening tomato here, Stebbijo and Bob are becoming addicted to their salt-water tank hobby here, Family Phil is sorting through photos after a weeklong vacay here, the various wars are getting to Mari here, and Jim introduces us to a daily blog from one of the UI Vandal football players here.
