I'm your Huckleberry

Rafting Riding down the mightly Mississippi (or some of it at least)
By Karen Cook
#728 - posted Sunday July 24, 2016 by Neil Gunton

"No not THAT Huckleberry! I am referring to Huckleberry Finn. The Huckleberry Finn from the book by Mark Twain that we American kids all read, or at least the book we are supposed to read. I'm sure I read most some of it in school?

Anyway, at some point in my life I read the book. That much I know. The book is about about Huckleberry Finn and his pal Jim, who float down the Mississippi River on a raft. Of course they have all kinds of adventures and insightful life experiences.

I can't say my trip will match theirs in excitement but I'm sure things will happen. Oh, things will happen!
