NIdaho Blogs: Back From The Dead

This photo by Stickman/Walkabout underscores the expression, "free as a bird." How would you like to sit on a snag in the middle of Tubbs Hill & view the panorama of our viewtiful part of the country?

Post of the Day: Just when I thought today would be like any other Sunday, I found I was wrong. What started out as a normal morning reading the Sunday paper turned bizarre as the phone rang. I picked it up hearing a familiar voice. Not having my hearing aids in yet, I at first had trouble understanding who I was talking to. I plugged in my ears in and lo and behold, it was Rhon Holm, former Bayview resident. It seems that the rumor had it that Rhon was deceased. His wife, Dee even received a sympathy card. The call began with Rhon saying, "hello from hell. Why aren't you here with me?" I explained that I had woke up alive this morning and wasn't scheduled to visit hell quite yet/Herb Huseland, Bay Views. More here.

Question: Have you ever thought a person was deceased when s/he wasn't?
