On an overcast Saturday, July 4th, Joe and I went to Brevard with our umbrellas which we decided not to use after arriving. With the sun hiding and a slight breeze it really made for a great day. And apparently we weren't the only ones thinking this way; the town was packed.

Thinking we would just go long enough for Joe to look at the antique cars and trucks I didn't wear the most comfortable shoes. As it turned out we walked the whole town, Main and Broad Streets.

Walking past the dunking booth I noticed friend, Metta Redding, perched upon the paddle, already wet from a few dunks. Joe bought a few balls and dunked her some more. A few steps further I thought I recognized someone in the GOP booth and he recognized me too, but from where? Turns out a few years’ ago we had been in the same water-aerobics class.

Neighbor, Rob Travis, had a wonderful display on Main Street in front of "Gravy's" with his photos and Giclées - the bright spot on the block. His work is incredible. And I met a gourd artist who was not from here and whom I did not know. She had a flock of polka-dotted gourd chickens.

While in town I ducked into several shops too, and laughed when I saw a big "Daddy Day Care" sign pointing in to "Hunter's and Gatherer's". I had to go and see, and came away with a great idea for one of Joe's used horse saddles: make a bar seat out of it.

We met a lady from Franklinton, NC who made wonderful dog harnesses and were able to find one small enough for our teacup Chihuahua "Jill". It goes on easy and is very soft, and pretty. I certainly will keep her business card.

Where "Gallery on Main" used to be (East Main St.), a new shop called "Nutcrackers" has gone in and a new restaurant next door.

Finally, I have to admit to almost making the same mistake as Joe when I saw a lady (with her husband) crossing the intersection, who looked just like our friend, local artist Linda Richardson. But I caught myself in time and as I heard Joe saying (to this lady) "Well hello." I turned and explained that she looked just like a good friend of ours. Figured I better do this before her husband got the wrong idea. Of course they were just visiting and did not know Linda. She really did look like her though.

We closed the day back at the car show. Joe said he saw "every car I ever drove or learned how to drive" at the show. He learned on a 1940 Ford Coupe. He was age twelve; Shhhhhhh.


As our sweet golden retriever had his yearly checkup scheduled Monday morning we decided to bathe him on Sunday night. When we bathe Burley we all get a bath. I figure it is equal to bathing five 20-pound dogs, as Burley weighs one hundred pounds. That is actually eight pounds less than last year.


After joining an exercise group at Rocky Hill I have lost 1lb. Not much, but better than gaining 1. There were a bunch of us at the last class with new people showing up as the word gets out. Suzanne Lawson does a wonderful job of “getting us moving”. Thanks Suzanne.

I thought my refrigerator was on the fritz because it was making a weird noise like metal rattling when it ran. I was all set to call for repair but discovered that it was a casserole lid making the racket when the motor ran. Putting a dish cloth between the lid and the shelf above it “repaired” my refrigerator. What a relief.

If you have a tale to tell or news you would like to share please email it to Linda Young at or call 828-877-5407.
