Uh, no, that's actually an assault rifle....

 Tonight was the Hillsborough Artwalk and the Eno Gallery is featuring Daniel Essig and his wife Vicki Essig in the upstairs gallery. Wesley and I met our great pals Bob and Laura and had an early dinner with them then went to see the exhibit. Poor Gerry is still covering the John Edwards trial, so he was in Greensboro. Come on jurors, get it over with already! We have a vacation to get on with!!  Laura was wearing Wesley's favorite necklace tonight. Wes has loved it since the first time she saw it in Laura's studio and Laura gave it to her tonight. While we were having dinner someone stopped by our table to say hello, noticed Laura's necklace, commented on how great it was and asked if it was a key.
" Uh no, it's actually an assault rifle", replied Laura. Wes and I snorted, and the poor nice lady left the table probably somewhat confused by all of us, haha! We're an odd bunch, but fun to be with! Somebody has to make edgy art! and Laura does it very well....

 Speaking of edgy art, Daniel Essig's work is pretty incredible. I didn't take a lot of photos, not sure of the rules on that, you can google him and find all sorts of images. I really like his work.
His wife, Vicki had some very beautiful fiber art also, although very difficult to photograph. It was wonderful to look at though.

I have some great friends and it was fun having dinner, laughing and checking out the local art with them tonight. Susan was very busy in her gallery and has some great wood fired work for sale there. I took some photos, but I had really bad exposures and got nothing worth posting. This was the only one that even sort of came out right, a crazy moment at the end of the hall with some suspicious smells coming out of the vents....... could be the reason we were all laughing, you could get a buzz just from the fumes!
Thanks Bob and Laura for a great dinner and a fun time!!!!

However not guilty she was, it was still Hill Arious to see LAURA coming out of the bathroom with the huge cloud of smoke! You and Wes were both sporting rocking necklaces. I love that Nina Bagley. Thanks for bringing cheer to the upstairs!

what a fun post! the assault rifle brought back memories for me... my brother lives in Alaska and used to be a hunting guide, which means he owns LOTS of guns. One time I was visiting and we spent some time target practicing with an assault rifle!!! I am not a gun person, but I will say it felt pretty powerful to fire it off.

Michele! You crazy girl!! I would imagine it is a huge rush to fire a weapon like that, probably why men seem to like guns, gets the testosterone flowing nicely, haha!
