Winston-Salem's first lady, uber-blogger Esbee, has been on hiatus for about 10 days and I have to say it's like having a friend you talk to every day leave town. It's funny because she's interested in things that, quite frankly, I wouldn't do in five lifetimes, but at the same time it's fun to read her dispatches from around town. Since I rarely venture far from the confines of my home office she's been my lifeline to all things Winston-Salem. I have a feeling that she's filled the same role for the thousands of people who visit her blog every day so I'm guessing that she's received hundreds of emails from readers suffering Esbeedrawals asking her what's up and when she'll be back. The sign on her blog says she'll be back November 5-ish and I'm hoping that the -ish is closer to five than to nine or ten.
Until she's back you should check out the profile that Winston-Salem Monthly did on Esbee, aka Lucy Cash.
