Mineral Point Market Pics

Have been setting up at the Mineral Point Farmer's Market the past couple weeks and will continue to do so for the remainder of the season. Just giving the community a little insight into what the Walker House is offering before we open up the doors and it has been a lot of fun actually getting out in the public and meeting people outside of the restaurants that I frequent, so that has been a lot of fun.

Here are some pics that I took of and around the market and of course, my pasties (I have sold out of pasties every week since I started going) So now we are selling my mini-pasties, pulled southern BBQ Pork and our new Heat and Eat Whole Wheat Pizzas.

Thanks to everyone for their support of not only the Walker House but of our local farms and farmers and the other local businesses that frequent the market

Pics, Pics and more Pics

An array of pictures...some of life here in Mineral Point with some included of my little town in Virginia and friends there, especially a couple pics of Trish Z. whom we had lost this year...

Jewel and other Stars

Again this ain't my pic....I just gotta story...
I went out for a cocktail after work (and Cheffy doesn't do TV) and I saw Jewel perfoming on Jay Leno...Man...she looked hot....
This was not the Jewel that I met, I mean she is hot no matter what but people like her and Alison and Bonnie and Reba really know how to play the game...
When you see them in cut off overalls, rock and roll t-shirts and being who they are and what they do is when I find them the sexiest...
Tonight on Jay Leno Jewel wore a short skirt that accenuated parts of her body and I am here to tell you that is not the most sexiest part of that woman...not even close....
The same can be said about Alison or Alicia...they might be hot when they are on stage, but when they are backstage and really being "people" is when they are the hottest...
I am not being selfish or sexist, but you know when someone is sexy...they are who they are and not for any reason, not for a camera, not for a fan, not for any reason at all...
just cuz....
This is one of the reasons that I love Alison, Alicia, Melissa, Jewel...
They don't have to try to be something that they are not...
They just are...
Some of us love poetry
There are others that put music to the words...
I love them all...

My Lil' Vickie...Soulmate, Best Friend, Photographer

A lot of the old Cheffy photos were taken by Vick, I don't talk about her too much anymore since I left Tennessee but she is a very important part of who and what I am...

A while ago Vickie had written a poem for me that I kind of forgot about and I thought I would post it on the blog, just cuz I think it is a cool poem and there are a lot of people that can relate to it...

Forever Yours,
Big Soft Cheek Kisses


The Shirt In My Closet

A shirt still hangs in my closet
even though its not one I wear

I guess it's some how a comfort
just knowing its hanging there

Some jeans folded neatly on the shelf
never to be worn again

Just a small reminder
of things that could have been

I guess we keep things sometimes
we know will never fit

But a woman has hopes and dreams
that are sometimes hard to quit

So for now the shirt and jeans will stay there

Even though they do not fit...

(pic of me scribbling in the snow this winter thinking about my baby...)

Sometimes life's road takes us many places.

Regrets or no regrets my world and career landed me in the beautiful world of Mineral Point.

Vickie would really love it here, as I do.

I just wanted to pay homage to this beautiful person for helping me become the man that I am today and for loving me unconditionally no matter what choices in life I have chosen.

Love You Baby...

Walker House Stories-Remember When?

Remember When?
It seems that everyone has stories about the Walker House so we had started a blog site so that people can tell their stories and we will publish them on the blogsite.
If you have a story you want to tell either send it to me or type it in as a comment on one of the blog entries and I will transfer it into a post on the blog.
We just started it, and I transferred one story over there and will probably transfer some of the stories that are buried on this blog over to that one just to get things started and maybe finish up my "What's Time To A Walker House Ghost?" story
Peace, Hugs and Mini-Pasties with Sweet Chili Jam
