HoCo Korner

I've decided to add a segment to the blog called "HoCo Korner".  As most of you know I was born and raised in Huron County, affectionately known as HoCo to its native sons and daughters.  It's a large area of land made up of small farm community after smaller farm community.  It would be near impossible to accurately describe what it's like there, at least not in one entry.  I'm actually very happy I grew up where I did, and have many wonderful memory's.  However, I feel that with every passing year that I don't live in HoCo (it's been 10 since I've lived there on a full time basis) I become a little more what they called "citified".  I'm not sure if I have become "citified" or not, I'm sure my brothers would say that I have.  I do notice that I might have gained a little more perspective on things.  I would like to think that it's just a byproduct of becoming older and having a small increase in wisdom.  That and putting some distance between myself and HoCo.  Kind of like the saying "You can't see the forest through the trees" I've distanced myself from the forest and can see it a little more clearly....and I've found it can be rather funny to look at.

Anyway, Huron County has one daily paper called The Huron Daily Tribune.  Many would consider it to be a "bad paper", but I think a large part of that stigma has to do with a limited amount of news in the area.  Some of the issues they have to report on may not seem to be as important to us "citified" individuals as to the rest of the residence.  Well the Huron Daily Tribune has recently updated their website to include pictures, FINALLY!!!  From time to time when I see a picture of interest on their site I'm going to post it to "HoCo Korner" and challenge you fine people to post the best quote, saying, short story, or what have you in response.  So with no further adieu, I give you the first "HoCo Korner"

Some girls learn to kiss on their hands or their mirrors or a pillow, this 13 year old is learning to kiss with her furry friend Tina the llama, only in Huron county can you find this.

Unbeknowst to poor Suzy, her schoolmates were all in on the gag of making her believe that "The Frog Prince" was a true story. Also unfortunate is the fact that Suzy failed science and cannot tell the difference between a llama and a frog.
