Death Club Celebrates Poe!

We have a business with no office. It's mighty darn cold. My sister had her purse stolen in a most obnoxious way. And our 4 year old began the day by vomiting in our bed.

There's only one thing that can pull me from this funk... DEATH CLUB!

This Saturday (January 16) is the anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe's birth and the venerated and quirky Poe Museum of distinguished Richmond, Virginia is throwing a party. Let's join them, shall we?

Arrive at 1914 East Main Street no later than 5:30 or you will miss the zombie cheerleaders. At 6 we will take part in the Eerie Nights ghost tour. After all this joy and fun we may head off to supper somewhere close unless we are all freezing and miserable; in which case you can pick up your Death Club Calendar of upcoming events and head home.

For more information on the Poe celebrations go to

For more on Death Club: stay tuned here or see you at Poe!

Happy Birthday to Poe!
Happy Birthday to Poe!
He wrote frightening stories...
And led a life of woe!

Living Up in the Air

Things have been up in the air at home and work.

My husband and I have gone into business together which is either one of our more brilliant decisions (like having kids), or one of our less inspired ones (like living at Ft. Bragg, NC). Only time will tell.

Right now we are hustling every day just to do the basic work tasks because we have no office space. Well, that's an exaggeration. We have coffee shops, courthouse meeting rooms, my husband's car, and our dining room table. But other than that, no office space.

{------ This is our office space last week. Once the space is done I am hoping that stilt man will remain. He is chill and seems nice, and hell, how many law offices do you know with a guy on stilts walking around?

I am in the early stages of discerning how a fifteen year career in ministry translates into being an office manager and Gal Friday in a family business. Right now I am just surprised and grateful each day that no one appears to be dying. They are all in jail... but you pick your blessings.

Will be posting the Death Club calendar shortly. I have a dozen events planned in the coming months for all who embrace life and make sure their ducks are in a row in case of death. In case of incarceration... call the office. The lines are forwarded to the coffee shop/dining room table.
