302/366 (2012): My Shoes For The Bobcats Tux And Tennies Event

Last night, my shoes were a runner-up for the women's sneaker award at the 2012 My Hero Gala. Although they didn't win first place, they were a big hit with the Bobcats. A few players even tried for some free throws. Too bad not a single one made it in the basket. I hope the season turns out better than this.

300/366 (2012): The Vanishing Point Of An Organized Art Studio

 Fantasy

My art studio is usually a mess. I try to keep it neat (see above) but once I get into a project things tend to get disorganized (see below). And I'm always in the middle of a project.

299/366 (2012): A Charlotte Quirk

On Elizabeth Avenue there are brand new tracks, but no trolley. Inside the Atherton Mill and Market sits Trolley #1. How can we get these two together? Why is the city keeping them apart?

295/366 (2012): Hula Hoops

This toy dates back to the 5th century ancient Greece, not the late 1950's as Wham-O would like us to believe.

Watch Beth Lavinder, she's amazing with the hula hoop. She hooped it up Wednesday at the James McMurtry show. Very nice, thanks for the inspiration, Beth.

Joe Pug performs a moving acoustic version of The Great Despiser, the title track off his latest LP at The Visulite Theatre in Charlotte.

Thanks Joe, you are such a solid song writer and poet. Keep your pen moving and I'll keep my ears open.

Petunia rests in her front yard in Todd, North Carolina after a busy Saturday greeting her adoring friends and fans. She wanted me to tell the world she REALLY dislikes bacon jokes, so please STOP!

but it's a good attempt.

285/366 (2012): I Can't Make You Love Me

Bonnie Raitt does an amazing cover of "I Can't Make You Love Me" by Allen Shamblin and Mike Reid. At almost 63, she still rocks the house and dishes up some sweet blues on her slide guitar. Go Bonnie!
