What’s up with me

This weekend, I took time from work and went to the RiverRun Film Festival in Winston-Salem. We were given free tickets to the Gala a couple of year ago and had a big time. We bought tickets this year and decided it's more fun for less money. The same band played less dance-able songs and…

Nevermore 2017

My friend, Meg, came up from South Carolina to go to Nevermore with me.  I think she had a good time.  I was disappointed. The computer system crashed Friday so we were unable to buy the ticket package (buy 8, get 2 free).  I asked to for punch cards (their usual deal is buy 4,…
