North Idaho Blog Rdp — 7.25.11

Either Herb or I didn't get the memo re: what to where at the Hucks Summer Bentfest at the Fort Ground Grill Sunday. If you look closely enough, you'll see that the two Hawaiian shirts aren't exactly alike. But you have to look awfully close to figure that out. Mebbe this is a case of great minds think alike. Herb later changed his shirt to an orange one after I told him he couldn't sit anywhere near me with the one he has on here. That's Digger's knee in the foreground. Stebbijo snapped this photo. You can read Herb's review of Blogfest here. And: Dogwalk Musings break down of Blogfest here.

Top Post: The age of 27 has claimed more than its share of performers. Jimi Hendrix. Janis Joplin. Kurt Cobain. And now Amy Winehouse. Jim Morrison basically drank himself to death, although it's rumored there was heroin in his system when he was found in the bathtub. Janis was also drunk, buzzed and stoned a lot of the time. She accidentally overdosed; she didn't know the heroin she was sold almost Pure, not 'cut' heroin. But it's nice to know Van Morrison is still alive and singing his heart out, just in case you wondered/Atmospheric Ruminations. More here.
