She's a California girl

She relocated to Maryland with her husband and daughter then the blizzard of 2010 hit the Washington DC area with 40 inches of snow: all she has in her closet for footwear are loafers, sandals, and flipflops.

Gift of Richard Brautigan

Remembering Richard Brautigan and the Confederate General from Big Sur, Revenge of the Lawn, Trout Fishing in America, and The Towel.
