Timber Folks
By George Miller


June 28, 2005

Dear friends of actual timber country folks.

It seems to me that folks who have live much of their lives in timber country, including those who acually were in the timber industry, would love to see a good lady axe thrower. Especially if they can hit the mark. We can go the tourist route any day and see various 'timber sports' done with theatric flair, by those who may have perhaps actually met a logger, or seen a picture of one somewhere. But a real logger event in Ketchikan seems far more palatable to me. Someone get a life and allow Kristin to throw her axes, it would be a great smile maker and those of us who know and love the timber lifestyle would commend the one who decided in her favor.
