My Words with Pictures

I'm old-school enough to still enjoy the print product.

So today's "Style Weekly," weighing in at a hefty 236 pages, is right up my alley as a reader.

As a writer, it was a lot of fun to work on, albeit in a ridiculously short period of time.

Did I mention that is was 236 pages?

As I read through the magazine, I was reminded of why I live here and blog in the first place.

Richmond has so much to offer and as one who is always out trying to avail myself of all that, it's nice to see that others acknowledge it, too.

Back in the Food and Drink section, my pieces on Buz Grossberg of Buz and Ned's Real Barbecue (my first time there, something I didn't mention at the interview), pricey wine (none of which I'll likely ever taste), fisherman "Cowboy" Smith (who paid me more than a few compliments on a bridge), and Man Most Likely to Be Dining Out (which is exactly how we met and bonded) were the most eye-catching, while some of my smaller submissions didn't garner pictures, but still represented work on my part.

Not that I'm complaining because I had loads of fun doing it.

Well, doing what I always do, but sharing it with an even wider audience this time.

And of course I always enjoy talking to strangers.

So if you're feeling at all old-school, check out "Style" in print.

It's a visual treat.


  1. I must get one now! Btw, earnest readers want to know what you're doing at 4 am Friday. Is it a party we can crash too? Some of us--I think perhaps you included?--don't have TVs! Shall I sign this ... anonymous?

  2. Maybe if I hadn't gone to bed at 2:15...
