A quick shout out to the Midnight Sun Cowboy, VERN NUSUNGINYA, who calls Soldotna home, under the watchful eye of the Federal Wit Protection Program. Sorry to blow your cover, Vern, but we must give credit where credit is due. And it goes without saying that any real Alaskan man is more than a match for some down-south-foul-mouth radio shock jock.
Next week I will be working on a year-end wrap up review of Name that 'Toon.
I would love to hear from you all about which of the caption contest cartoons you think deserve to be part of the big wrap-up. You can check out the Name that 'Toon archive by clicking on the archive link at the right.
Size them up, and let us know what you think by replying to this post. And if anybody has any more stories about Jimmy "Shortneck" Pribiloff, King of the Copper River Delta Bluesmen, send those along too. Been looking for a good copy of his "Hellhusky on my Trail" on 78 rpm. They say Leonhard Seppala was listening to it on his iPod when he finally made it to Nome.
This was a blast for me, we'll keep it going. Thanks to all of you for contributing.
