Huckleberries Online

Best of the Local Blogs — 3/14/06

“The geese have returned to stake their claim on the nesting box. (You can see it behind them.) They are daily visitors, skidding across the ice on the pond. This picture was taken several days ago, before we got our latest big snow” — Toni/Idaho Nature Trails.

New Blog: Jeff/The Bodie Spectre will be added to the “Friends of Huckleberries” blogroll tomorrow. He lives just down the “crik” from the ghost town of Bodie, Wash., and took up blogging as a way to communicate from the boonies to the rest of the world. He’s an independent who leans waaaaaay right and has two children, including a National Guard son who has served in Iraq. For the Bodie Spectre, click here.

*I didn’t have time when Sam Taylor/Vandal Sense paid a visit to Coeur d’Alene Monday and Tuesday, but Mike Kennedy did. And Sam talks about it here.

*Cis Gors/From A Simple Mind discovered something that you don’t want to send to a minister’s wife here.
