Inside Huckleberries — 7/25/06

4:23 p.m., I tried to persuade another HBO bloke that neither JBelle or UBob is channeling Marmitetoasty, the newby from Jolly Old England. She’s for real, a single mother of four boys-to-men who lives in a 102yo cottage in the County Hampshire. I’ve talked to her on the phone. So be nice to her.

3:56 p.m., I ordered several changes to the blogrolls, adding Pecky Cox’s As The Lake Turns, BrodH20, David Newberger’s CDA Times, Amyrebba’s That’s Life. Life Goes On, and changing Your Turn to Stebbijo Unzipped. Also, I asked for a link to Frank Stennett’s Hard 7 (Under SR blogs) and Idawa’s Word Forge (Friends of Huckleberries). Blogmeister KenP is working on it.

11:30 a.m., DanG dropped by with a copy of Idaho’s disappointing special quarter and a conspiracy theory that’s intriguing. If you look closely at the peregrine’s feathers, you see something that looks similar to signatures in various places, including Dirk Kempthorne’s. Is it possible that Dirk not only gave us the bird but his signature and those of friends in the mix to be commemorated in perpetuity? Interesting.

11:20 a.m., Great note from Pecky Cox of Priest Lake, author of the blog, As The Lake Turns: “THANK YOU for your wonderful article on BOAT BOORS! I found it and have published it in my website: PLEASE share with AS THE LAKE CHURNS any other stuff you ever
write on Priest Lake.” You can bet I’m going to add Pecky’s blog to the North Idaho roll ASAP.

9:30 a.m., On the Police Scanner: A man calling from a pay phone sez there’s 3 bombs planted at Hagadone HQ.

8:47 a.m., I’ll be dedicating my work today and tomorrow to Robideaux Motors, where my daughter’s car is now parked waiting for, what a surgery patient would call, “a procedure.” Two days pay should take care of the ransom. Fortunately, service manager Jerry Kelly is one of the best in town. So, I know the little Ford Taurus is in good hands.
