Opening This Weekend! (4/9-4/11)

Well hello again my darlings. Sorry about the lack of listing last week, I was out in the middle of the desert looking at wildflowers. I was woken up one morning by a scorpion (thankfully in a jar), and man, those things are cool looking. We turned him loose in the desert a couple hours later. Oh, the desert, it's awesome. I also discovered that my favorite decrepit old motel, the North Shore Yacht Club on the sunny (and stinky) shores of the Salton Sea, has been remodeled. SUCK! I also acquired a Brownie Beau from my husband's grandmother (it belonged to her aunt), and shot a roll of film with it. Firggin' AWESOME! But now I'm back, and ready to rock and roll.
