Notes from the Geek:
Yes, I will be a judge at Chalk of the Town this Saturday in Old Town. So bone up those drawing skills, kids. And if I don’t survive the triathlon, I want y’all to know I love all of you. Except that one guy. Y’know, the one with the hat? He knows who he is.
I mean it,
Daniel (the Geek)
