  • From this Chair…
    The other morning I heard rata-tat-tat outside my bedroom window and thought “That darn woodpecker is back at it again trying to drill a hole in my house.” Two years ago I had to have a patch put on the house to cover up a hole made by a woodpecker. So this time I was going to beat him at his own game, got out of bed and went looking for my 12-gauge shotgun to shoot at him. When I couldn’t find the shotgun…I remembered. I don’t own one!

In fact, one station in Kooskia told me they get their gas off the same truck as the one that delivers to Orofino. To read the rest of this article, subscribe or log in.
