HBO’s Best of the Local Blogs — 7/19/06

“It’s summer and it’s awful hot/Happy, we are surely not/Our fur is holding in the heat/The one thing cool, our kitty feet” —Mistrie Rose/The Calico Girls.

*Bayview Herb apparently isn’t the only one in his small community on Lake Pend Oreille who’s unhappy about newcomers trying to take over things here.

*Mari Meehan/Dogwalk Musings asks an old Pete Seegar/Peter, Paul & Mary question re. war: When will we ever learn … here.

*Amy Crooks/That’s Life, Life Goes On has re-emerged with a revitalized blog on genealogy here.

*Mommy Dearest/BrodH20 has a sure-fire way to make everything seem more affordable here.

*Marianne Love/Slight Detour comes out well ahead every time she calls repairman Tony Bitton to fix his lawnmower here.

Meanwhile, Family Phil’s having trouble getting shut eye here, Cis marvels that her kids are getting old even though she isn’t here, CDADave plays old music to relieve a funk here, Granati’s helping out again at the Union Gospel Mission here, and UBob leaves on vacation here.
