I’m a media ho’!

Was waiting for my Chick-Fil-A to-go order this morning and saw a copy of the Commercial Appeal sitting on a table next to me.

I opened it up and looked for the Go Memphis section (was the Playbook) to see if my show got listed.


I opened it up and viola- there I was!


It almost scared me a bit. Glad I wasn’t having my morning coffee when I saw this!


Great listing, and I couldn’t ask for a better placement!


I’m also listed on the GoMemphis.com site!

Lots of other great Halloween happenings going on around town listed, too- like Haunted Web of Horrors haunted house and “Gorey Stories”, a macabre assortment of tales, songs, and limericks from the gothic outpourings of writer-illustrator Edward Gorey.


Looking forward to just hanging out and having fun tonight at my art show finally. Finished the last painting for it this morning before leaving for work (Jack).


Stick a pitchfork in me- I’m done!

Hope to see you tonight. If you need directions, just click here!
