ROOM MATES OR CAR MATES?
Either way, both Deb Holland and Christine Pace's vehicles are sharing spaces side-by-side at Charlie's Tires building in Brevard right now, each awaiting parts to get them on the road again. It's funny, says Christine, that when my car broke down (the radiator blew) I ended up pulling over in the exact same spot where Deb had to pull over when her car broke down! It's not fun being without your mode of transportation. Hopefully by the time this edition comes out we'll both be happily in possession of our cars again.
Rocky Hill Baptist Church was full to the brim with members and visitors for their annual "Homecoming" this past Sunday. The Slick Fisher Boys from Lake Toxaway, with a very talented banjo picker from Pickens, SC were special guests and gave us an enjoyable "Bluegrass Homecoming"! Always the 4th Sunday in August, if you want more information on Rocky Hill's next homecoming please call the pastor Dr. Leland Holland at (828)862-5611.
Doug Pace has installed a new sculpture at Doghobble, home of Joe and Gloria Harris at Cedar Mountain. This wonderful piece of iron work needs a name. So if you know what this object was in another life and would like to submit guess and a name suggestion, send it along to Cedar Mountain News.The winner will gain fame as long as an iron object survives. A hint - it weighs a ton!
CHRISTINE'S CORNER It is difficult to realize right now, that my dear sweet husband Joe Earl Pace may not be at next year's homecoming at Rocky Hill Baptist church, where he is a life-long member and a faithful deacon. The prognosis by his cancer doctor, given us just this past Monday, is not good, with the new finding that he now has a third cancer and that his first is a rapidly-spreading variety. Though very weak, Joe was able to attend the homecoming this past Sunday at Rocky Hill! We both believe God is the greatest physician and that only He knows the future, and so we ask that those who believe as we do, and pray, that you include Joe in your prayers please. I thank you personally and from my heart.

AROUND THE HOUSE ~ Linda Young
My BFF, Dnita is visiting for two weeks from Illinois and would like to move here. We are having a good time window shopping houses. She wants to get an idea of what she could afford. As luck would have it the ones she liked are pending for sale. The weather isn’t as warm as we’d like but at least we are high and dry and counting our blessings.
What’s happening with you or in the community? We’d love to hear what’s going on, if you would like to share. Please email your news to email@example.com by 6 pm on Mondays for inclusion in the Thursday edition of the Transylvania Times.
