Took me awhile to get it up…
My cover story for last week’s Arkansas Times:
She’s about 5’4″ with blonde-streaked hair and, on some days, bottle-tan skin. She supports conceal and carry rights, touts Christianity on Facebook, makes public appearances in polyester blend and employs phrases like “gotcha” when presiding over city council meetings. Once she juggled a dual management role, overseeing both her daughter’s swim team and her husband’s business. She spends her days composing termination letters for directors of city departments and peppering city hall with GOP figureheads. Dollar Store buzz is she’s got her sights on the mansion. No, not the Hurricane Lake mansion.
I’m sorry I’ve left y’all high and dry for so long. I hope it won’t happen again, but I’m not making any promises.
I only had about a month in Mississippi (post-Pakistan) before moving to Arkansas, which is sad, because I pretty much adore Mississippi.
This is the Ross Barnett Reservoir, in early morning, taken from my parents’ porch. Wish I had had a little more time with it.
