First Day

First Friday in downtown Panama City is usually a good time. Tonight, it was really extremely better than that. I strolled the crowd, saying hello to friends and acquaintances, bumped into our neighbors, and had a good chat with Jayson Kretzer and his wife Heather at the McKenzie Park fountain as I checked out the Festival of the Arts "preview" night. Then north again and upstairs to the Gallery Above and its opening reception for the "Light" show:



Spent part of the evening prepping for a yard sale. That's right: Head over to 707 Gabriel Street in the morning and check out the books, comics, CDs, DVDs, VHS, toys, magazines, various electronics, home decor, tools and other things we've filled the tables in the garage with.

Today's Word: Divest.

Tomorrow's Word: Haggle.

Also tomorrow: Free Comicbook Day. All over the country. Go to your local comic shop and pick up something for absolutely free. In addition, lots of shops are having local costumers come out and play superhero for the day. Check out this video from last year's event at Arena Comics:



If i can get away from the yard sale for an hour tomorrow, that's where I'll be. (Jayson said he'll be there doing sketches.) Check the site above for a list of participating shops and what sorts of titles they may have available.

Peace.
