Chuck Heath, Jr. on Facebook, you're missing out on all of the wonderful stories from the "Our Sarah Made In Alaska" book signing tour. Chuck Jr. has a real talent for sharing the day to day experiences that he and Chuck Sr. go through whether it be the agonies of travel, their fun side trips or the great people they meet at each signing location. In today's post, Chuck Jr. mentioned that there were reporters at the Coeur d'Alene, ID signing so I used my "Googling" skills to find what might be one of the most comprehensive and factually correct articles I've ever seen when it comes to the Heath/Palin families.

They laughed often - "Anybody that calls me Mr. Palin, I charge them a dollar. I could be rich on that," Heath Sr. said, grinning.
But they also often expressed frustration with the media they accused of twisting words and making up stories about Sarah Palin and her family.
"Most of the stuff written about us is totally untrue," Chuck Jr. said.
"You guys that know her personally, she is as regular as anybody you will ever meet," he added
