Ms. Abby Sure Can Pick 'Em/The Nose Knows
Our good friend Oddjob snapped this photo of The Ditty Bops signing autographs at their show at Amoeba. After he had posted the pic on The Ditty Bops Website, someone else pointed out that it looks as though the Ladies are closer than we'd like to think. It reminds our Publisher of something his mother always says. It goes something like, "You can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you're pretty much stuck with your relatives".
The Bicyle Tour has picked up quite a following. The Ditty Bops have two support vehicles. A Toyota Prius Hybrid car, which is the official American car of the Holabird Advocate and a van that is powered with Willie Diesel, which is a soy based fuel.
There are more details on The Ditty Bops tour on their website at www.thedittybops.com
E.E. Hinkle Has Ups and Downs
It has been slow going for E.E. Hinkle since falling in his house last Tuesday evening. Some, including all of us here at the Holabird Advocate, would like to know just how he fell down. Nobody seems to know, and E.E. isn't talking. He's put a brave face on through it all. He has even started walking on his treadmill again. He's not running any marathons exactly, but considering he is two months away from his 104th birthday, he is moving along very smartly indeed. If anything has suffered, it's his appetite. He's down to just 3 meals a day, and sometimes 4. It's not all bad. He sleeps through the night, too!
I've Got A Secret?

Earlier this week, a Reader was bold enough to say that I don't talk about myself enough. Of course, so far this Reader is the only one of this opinion. A valid point was made, however. After all not all of the Readers know me all that well. Still, the reason I don't say too much about myself is that there are other people in the world who need to be profiled. The Amanda Barretts, the Hunter Mees, the Bridget Deuters, The Joan Hansens, and yes, the E.E. Hinkles.
If anyone is really all that curious, I understand that the September issue of South Dakota Magazine will tell you more than you probably want to know. There is also an FAQ section at the bottom of the Front Page for all who can't wait that long.
