I took a weekend to go home and get some sweet friend time in with my BFF Jamie. I thought I'd share some snapshots of my trip, if you're interested:
Shenandoah Valley Arts Center to check out my friend Pat Jarrett's photo exhibit. It's about manhood in modern times, and has amazing portraits of men, from Boy Scouts to gangstas to grandpas.
Robo's Drive-In in Pound, Va. For like six years, Jamie and I had a tradition: at the beginning and end of every summer, we went to Robo's. I would get a Reese's Cup milkshake, Jamie would get a peanut butter shake. And for my money, it's one of the best cheeseburgers in the universe, as good as Five Guys, if not better.
And a parting shot — the kudzu enveloping the mountainside. Such a common sight in my childhood, I didn't even know it wasn't the norm.
