It is with deep sadness I must inform you that I, my very mayoral self, have been victimized by a computer hacker. It started with a false email sent to me from "windows live members services team" advising me that my email account would be permantly cancelled if I did not verify and confirm pertinent information. This hacker has hijacked my email and is puported to advance his sinister ambition towards my bank account and credit card. Being the ever gulible,trusting soul that I am, I responded. Needless to say, I am among the jaded, walking wounded. 

However, I persevere.  Despite the impending demise of my stint as Mayor of Chappell Hill, and I do hope you all donate generously to the CHVFD for the cause, I will continue to provide you with humorous, if not sometimes meaningless entertainment.

From here forth, you may reach me at this email address: And the blog is still virginal and remains the same: However, once I am de-throned, That address may have to be changed. 

Unless, of course, there emerges a ground-swelling, grass-roots, tea party movement to invite me to a second term. (HINT-HINT)!

The Bluebonnet Festival was, by all accounts, a huge success! And the vendors, patrons and wildflowers did not disappoint! Hot dogs, Kettle Corn, Lemonade...I was puffed up like a sea frog!

Also, I must add, the Kingfisher Ranch provided an additional festival of perfect proportion. My DEAR HUSBAND and I participated in the armadillo race (of course I won, despite DEAR HUSBAND'S attempt to sabbotage and cripple my armadillo).  
I passed on Larry the Camel Guy ride, DEAR HUSBAND took a wild spin at break-neck speed on the souped-up, tricked-out ATV with His Most Gracious Former Royal Air Force Pilot, Sir Roger Imm and the curtain call was the indelible sight of Sir Imm spiraling his airboat across the    place. It made me so nervous, I feared I might hurl my BBQ sandwich. But the MOST PLEASUARBLE Mrs. Paula Imm, said, "Ah! That's nothin'...He was one of the first pilots on the scene after the twin towers fell and landed on practically nothing but rubble!"

If you don't already know these folks, do so. Amazing, interesting people. Part of the reason our MOST BEAUTIFUL VILLAGE is so fascinating! And a great place to live and breathe freely.




  1. Hi Geneva!
    So sorry to hear about your hacker!!!!!!I always enjoy reading, I guess your term is almost up??? I say you don't step down as "Mayor" you just stay in office. To heck with them! maryanne xo

  2. Sweet Maryanne:
    Thank you for your support! With tears, I must tell you I am no longer Mayor of CH. My crown was bought out too the tune of $1250.Too steep for me. But gladly went to Mary Tom Middlebrooks.I gave a wonderful farewell speech, brought those brawly firemen to tears and then made them laugh with my commorative donation of a tiny Dalmation Beanie Baby (came with my happy meal) but "Burnice" rides front and center on the the fire truck.
    Saw a friend at th P.O. today; She said, " Gen, you will always be the Mayor"
    So, I am a Mayor, on a wing and a prayer.

  3. Madame Mayor I am so sorry you lost your post. But keep on posting!!!!!!!xo Maryanne ;)
