Bemidji!



According to the VISIT BEMIDJI website, Eastman Kodak recognizes these two guys as the most photographed landmarks in the U.S. It did not mention what is the first most. But who cares? I'm going to see these guys for the first time in I-don't-know-how-many decades on August first when I head up to Bemidji to read with Erin Lynn Marsh! (More info over on that sidebar to your right.)

I was born in Bemidji, and though we moved when I was seven years old, I have all sorts of formative memories. I expect the trip to be a lot of fun and to wig me the hell out at alternating invervals.

Luckily, I am traveling with my sister. We can wig out together, or support our separate wigging.

I used to love when I worked at Northwest and people from BJI would call. It gave me an excuse to say "Bemidji!" I was always cheered up by this... until my passenger went on to tell me how much they hated my employer. :-)

I can't wait for the road trip, sister! I think I did most of my wigging out last summer. I'll drive so you can stare out the window. I do believe Paul and Babe still guard the water front along with Chief Bemidji. Everything else is different...
