As a former chef and current green thumb with his own penchant for decorating, I can now say that life is a little greener with Martha Stewart being such a good sport when signing her book, “MARTHA’S FLOWERS” to me as if “The South’s Greatest Storyteller” were my middle name! Its actually Spencer but for the sake of this moment, let us all pretend. Martha’s “people” were made curious by it for sure and to be completely honest — its true — Martha has yet to tweet her whimsical compliment or say it anywhere else publicly to my knowledge, but hey, I’ll take what I can get inside of a book flap from The MacGyver of Home Economics!
Martha thinking about her Bonaventure picnic…dreamy ain’t she?
Martha doesn’t know it yet, but one day we’re going to do a show where we cook and prepare a picnic, and then embracing the tradition of The Victorians and their Rural Cemetery Movement, we’re going to head out to The South’s Most Famous Cemetery, Bonaventure! We will dine on biscuits with Green Pepper Jelly and I will tantalize with both my gazpacho and my tales of those gone by and if we do it up right, we’ll start a whole revival craze of picnicking in cemeteries! Then we’ll text each other months later about the good times we shared! Oh wait — I’m sorry — was I getting carried away there for a second?

Oh Martha, you shouldn’t have! (Special Thanks To My Accomplice, A.N.)
This came out last Fall but I failed to put it up on my blog. My fellow storyist and good friend Lisa Marie accompanied me as model and the photo shoot itself was a lot of fun but they didn’t use a single shot of me smiling! The magazine had also lost its editor and not to bite the hand that feeds, but it suffered much from late late night copy editing with very sore eyes so please forgive the glaring errors! All the same, it was a good time had by all and I got to share some previously unknown Savannah historical and haunted facts! It also seemed fitting that The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus was on the cover as I’m a huge fan of the show and as my fans know, I drop a reference to it at least once a day on my Bonaventure Cemetery Journey’s tour in a fun and unexpected way! Cause yeah, I roll like that!
