Default puffin smoke

I got a little blue smoke on startup today. I thought it was my imagination so i let it sit until it was completely cold and looked this time. Sure enough, got blue smoke at the tail pipe. 90,000 miles and some change. It does'nt run funny or anything and has never done this before. The truck does sit for weeks at a time though. Anybody heard any issues with the hemi's concerning this?

My '06 with a 4.7 did that after sitting for weeks at 98,000 miles. The dealer wasn't concerned since it wasn't consuming measurable oil between oil changes. If you are seeing this it is probably a sign of slowly failing valve seals.
