Huckleberries Online

HBO’s Best of the Local Blogs — 12/18/06

Dunno who this guy is, other than he isn’t Thom George. He was at the Kootenai County Courthouse today, protesting that Idaho Republicans still haven’t ponied up the $3,500 to pay for veep Dick Cheney’s electioneering in Kootenai County prior to November’s election. Kerri Thoreson/fyiNorthIdaho.com snapped the photo.

Extra! A blogger who purports to be CodaDave has made it to his new home in the Pacific NW and already is chuckling about newscasters who warn that temperatures could drop below 30. The big storm knocked out his phone service. So, he wrote to Huckleberries from the library. He sez hello to his fans here and promises to start posting regularly when he gets online in a week or two.

*”Amateur” is a noble word when it’s uttered by Raymond Pert/Kellogg Bloggin’, who continues in praise of amateur journalism as performed by all bloggers in the North Idaho blogosphere here.

*Not only does TuBob have a new blog that’s devoted to his current weight loss program (“My Beautiful and Special Weight Loss Blog”) here, but he treats us to a nice post about watching his man-cub come of age on the slope here.

*Do you remember that Barf-o-rama in “Stand By Me” (Stephen King’s short story, “The Body”)? Well, Katrina/Notes on a Napkin sez her son, Caleb, performed his own Barf-o-rama last week that involved 5 pajama changes here.

*Sam/Vandal Sense empathizes with a kindergartener who made a fuss while getting his hair clipped because he’d been nicked before here.

*Stebbijo knows when a winter has been unusually cold because she remembers it — like the time she was a first-grader in an ugly snow suit with berms 10 feet high here.

*Nathan Empsall/Wayward Episcopalian, who’s helping the clean-up effort in Lousiana, is ashamed of the district that re-elected corrupt U.S. Rep. William Jefferson to another term here.

Put your hands together for Friends of Huckleberries faves Bubblehead/The Stupid Shall Be Punished and Pickaxe Pete/The Bodie Specter who finished second and seven, respectively, in their national contest brackets for best blogs.

Meanwhile, Toad tells a fellow One Star Stater what he misses most about Texas here, Southwark Lad is bent about hidden fees here, Bayview Herb has little sympathy for adventurers who get caught on mountains here, Dr. Jim sez a sports concussion is serious business here, and Marianne has posted cool photos of her horses and Lovestead here.
