Blog Post

Here’s what you need to know…

You’re here! So glad you came. This is my first “official” blog post on, which went live last night (already filled with some fun, backloaded content.) I wanted to test it this morning and be sure everyone is getting notifications and tell you a little about what to expect.

Firstly, this blog is an extension of my work at, where I write about quirky roadside attractions and little-known state history. Here, on this blog, I will write about weird and quirky things from across the country. I backloaded several newly written features, including a post on the Haunted Lemp Mansion in St. Louis, roadside concrete artworks in Jerome, Mo., and a gallery of Very Large Things I’ve visited.

I also write a weekly humor column for on subjects such as my husband, Sweetums, wanting to dress like Sasquatch at our wedding last fall, and “Does being a high-maintenance woman make my butt look big?” I will link them here each week marked “Column,” for those who are followers. That way, you will get an email notification when a new one is posted.

I also will write about Southern Stuff, including everything from southern wedding ideas to my annoyance that Hollywood thinks we all talk like Rhett But-lah. From time-to-time, I’ll include posts on my struggles as a single mother because I didn’t have much support during the leanest years and I hope my posts might offer support to other single moms.

Be sure to click the blog heading for the latest content! I post columns every week (barring illness), usually on Wednesdays and Thursdays and I plan to post original content here about four times weekly. Pick and choose – there’s something for everyone!

Thanks so much for coming aboard. I hope you will sign up for email notifications and keep up with my latest weirdness.
