Thank you for your support!

These are two of the posts that I wrote during the first week of this blog. My fourth anniversary is Sunday, the 27th. I thought I'd share a couple of my first attempts at on-line journalism. The picture? just because it was fun, and how many other North Idaho bloggers can say they rode a camel, She was cute, too, don't you think? Kinda reminds me of my third wife.

At an after hours session yesterday, at the Spokesman-Review,editors Ken Sands and Dave Oliveria attempted to council us folks that are blog addicted. This session was crafted in the hope that we would all go forth and do good in our community.

In The Spokesman-Review today

U.S. Fish & Wildlife co-ordinator, Ed Bangs in an interview. "You can classify Wolves as anything you want but predators"...Duh? How about wildlife disposal units?...

In Huckleberries ..."I left my dollar for salami home". My Mariner heart fluttered, until I realized he was not talking about grand-slam homers ...

Stephen Ambrose, Toby, or "Old Toby" was the nickname of an old Shoshone that guided the expedition through the Bitterroot Mountains ...

And I'll be the first to say "Happy Anniversary!"

You were the first blogger I met, other than DFO, at that long-ago first blogfest at the S-R building. Remember that? You, me, Kristin Hoppe, Bill and Lisa McCrory... Who else was there? Not many.

Oops! counting on the fingers of one hand, I realized, after DFO's prompting, that it is only my third anniversary. Time flies when you are having fun. Four years ago, I was, at this time of year,on my infamous road trip across this great nation, and thankfully, back again.
