The Lowdown

This past weekend was a bit crazy. Lots going on. So, let’s get to it. Saturday, I went to the River Arts District Artists Studio Stroll. I hadn’t been in a couple of years as  this was something that Franke and I did every Fall until we had our falling out. I ended up going […]

R.I.P. Frances Davis

Yesterday, Frances Davis (known in the pages of this blog as Franke) passed away after a short but intense battle with cancer. It’s only been a little over two months since we found out she had been diagnosed with Stage IV Melanoma that had metastasized in her brain. Needless to say, it’s been a rough […]

Zombies!

Franke, Jonesy and I joined in on the fun of the Zombie Walk over in Asheville yesterday. My major complaint about the event was that the zombies were more “walking” than “shambling.” Here’s some pictures of the bloody fun … And if you look hard … you can spot me in this video of the […]
