New Blogger....

As you can see, I have a new blog listed.
It is called Kellogg Bloggin. Runs under the
name of Raymond Pert, which is the author's
father's name. It is a tribute to his father.

The writings are wonderful. When he talks
about sitting at the kitchen table with his lap
top, writing his blog and hearing music. Well,
you feel like you are there sitting across from
him, you can hear the music and listen to him
tell you the stories of ago.

This man is in a league of his own. The rest
of us are just players. This man writes the
stories of his soul. And the soul of his fellow
towns people.

He lives in Eugene, Oregon and works as a teacher.
But he was raised in Kellogg, Idaho. And Kellogg,
her people, still have his soul. The writings get dark
sometimes. But the times and lives were dark. It
is a mining town. People die there. If not in the mine
itself, then the dust or other fumes.

But he also brings in the good times, the raunchy times.
The times to drink and cuss, to enjoy the soul fullness
of good friends. Who have been lucky enough to
survive this dark mining town. Showing that even
in the darkest of time, friends and family live their
lives like the rest of us...just harder.

There is laughter, and times that he makes you
smile. But most of it is, just telling it like it is.
So hope you will check in with him. Read several
stories. Go down at least 5 or 6 stories. You will
be glad you did.

Like I said, the rest of us are just players... he
is the real deal. A daily book chapter, that you
can't put down.
