humans aren’t my favorite people, but Chiplis is okay. i’ve no proof he’s actually human, but if he is, he’s one of the good ones.

Chiplis is the proprietor of the Fairy Tale Love Shack Out Back, a very small 2 room house where Lady and i lived for 6 weeks before leaving the country the 1st time, and for 10 weeks before we left the country the 2nd time. the shower was in the kitchen between the fridge and stove.

our friend had us read at his Razzle Dazzle art closing right after we got back to cleveland after 14 months overseas.
