A Merry Bill Holm Christmas

Cabins of Minnesota, by Bill Holm. Photography by Doug Ohman. Minnesota Byways Series. St. Paul: Minnesota Historical Society Press, 2007. 128 pgs.

I was delighted to receive a copy of this book from Jody in Minnesota. It is fun to read (Bill wrote the text), and fun to enjoy all the cabin photos--it may also give us some planning ideas for the Condemnation Plantation. As I read through it last night I was delighted to find that Bill spends the last chapter ruminating on time spent at his cabin in Hofsós, Iceland. When we met Bill in Hofsós he visited us at the house we were renting, and while we have photos of his house (cabin), we don't have any photos of him in front of it. Now that I own this book we do! A great Christmas gift, Jody; thank you.

Doug Ohman is a regular customer where I work, I've printed many of his big prints.

A return to the old layout! Could it be that a new post is imminent?
I await with bated breath!

Yes, a new post would be an excellent idea. As you can see, I am having problems. First my dates all disappeared, then my links (e.g. Flippism!). Must do some blog doctoring this weekend!
