What’s her deal!?

What’s her deal!?

“Adventures in Boundary County!” In our last episodes our characters got stuck on a mountain and had to be rescued! Their vehicle was brought back to life and has been in good repair ever since! Then they moved on to the county fair! In todays episode our main character is a tempremental indecisive maiden. One moment we are hiding from her fiery temper, the next shielding from her icy stares and today, sheltering from her deluge of tears. She is…

Is that rain or blue skies!?

Is that rain or blue skies!?

We were sitting in our living room doing regular old sitting in the living room things. Nothing stands out to me from that day. Nothing, that is, until our middle child got a curious look on her face and asked excitedly, “is that rain?!” I had to stop, stand still and listen intently for a second before I realized it was indeed rain falling from the sky. It made a distinct noise due to our “tin” roof. What a glorious…

Friends….

Friends….

Now, I want you to think of how many friends you have. Then I want you to think of how you define that word. Do you define it as someone who clicked accept of Facepage? In which case you may have hundreds if not thousands of “friends”. Do you define it as the people you work with/go to school with (and actually get along with)? Then you may have tens of friends. Do you define it as someone you go…

The fair…. continued

Thank you for tuning back into another episode of “Adventures in Boundary County!” We last left off wondering if anyone in the family had won any ribbons! Would hopes be dashed? Would all that work be for naught?! Or would a ribbon entice life long Fair addicts?! We round the corner into the photohraphy section. Beautiful photos taken many people of many skill levels! Walk through this building to a little sandbox where you can put prints in the sand…

The Fair…..

Rave! We tune in to a new episode of “Adventures in Boundary County!” The adventures have resumed! As you may recall our characters were initially stranded. Then two heros rescued them and put them back on the path to adventures big and small! A slight breeze is blowing. Kids in inflated hamster balls giggle in a pool. People from all backgrounds walking with the look of wonder you can only get at a fair! What will the next booth have?!…

A nod to the ol’ timers

A nod to the ol’ timers

I was on a walk around our little town awhile back and it made me wonder. How many of us appreciate the trades men and women (got to keep it politically correct….) of yesteryears? Our downtown was built before most of us were born. Segments of an old bridge are still there to admire, an old generator on display on the north west side of city hall. I invite you to tour your town with a new set of eyes….

The Idahoan

The Idahoan

(Tips for the prospective Idahoan.) For you the prospective Idahoan. We already covered the Idahoan’s staple food. The Huckleberry. Now let’s cover the actual Idahoan itself. We already know, generally speaking, that the Idahoan is a blunt, kind, and a patriotic critter. What you may not know about the Idahoan, it is perplexing, is that they are never happy yet full of joy. Now the Idahoan is constantly changing their minds. You will hear them complain….. A LOT! So these…

(Also taken from North Idaho Life post I put up) I have a FORMAL COMPLAINT (From the Raul portion of this account). I would appreciate it if someone could pay attention to it this time. Some time back I requested you folks stop putting beautiful photos which entice my family to Idaho. I was assured “the contest” was ending soon and the flood of photos would slow. WELLLLLL they didn’t. They continued. Then this guy Keith gets my kids involved…
