Hoot & Holler

Monday, June 7th 2010 by Pat

I’m heading out to the cabin at the end of the week and probably won’t have time to post new comics or films until I get back around the 4th of July.

I’m hoping to get some fishing in but it’s mostly a work trip, fix what’s broken, patch what’s leaking, try to straighten out the foundation without dropping the cabin on my head. That sort of thing.

The trip is also for Rod Selvig’s memorial service, the good mayor of Idaho Inlet. Rod lived at Nip & Tuck, about a half mile down the beach from our place, and we always stopped by for a visit when we were out that way.

We spent a lot of time playing horseshoes, drinking Rainier, and listening to his stories. He had a gravel voice and a sparkle in his eye, just looking at him you knew the guy could move a mountain if he wanted to. He was rare.
