Boystown Arrives in Pigeon Forge

In an email with the subject line of "Hello from Death Vally," my friend Aaron...


...Master Aaron as he refers to himself here on ARE YOU THERE, BLOG?...

...
wrote me to tell me that he has arrived in East Tennessee to begin his new contract performing at Dollywood for their Winter Festival.

Yep. You heard me. Dollywood. THAT Dollywood. Like there are others?

I love it when friends from here in Chicago visit East Tennessee, because afterwards, they have more of an appreciation of what makes me "me" and why I am the way I am.

Aaron put it best in the email when he wrote...

"HOW THE FUCK DID YOU GET OUT OF HERE?!?!?!?
GOOD FOR YOU!!!!"

I can't wait to go home for Thanksgiving and Christmas and hang out with Master Aaron, his partner John and my extended family.

My kinfolk have never seen as much leather as they're about to see in all their born days!
