SHERWOOD FOREST LADIES GOLF by Nancy Waclawek

League results for June 10

What a beautiful day for golf on Monday. We welcomed two new players to our league and had 22 golfers play the back nine in a game of Like Handicaps/Low Gross. Winner: Peggy Baldwin. Low net: Marolyn Smith, a new player.  Next Monday we play the front nine in a game of Low Putts (only the number of putts will count as the game score for each team). Thanks to everyone for showing up at 8:30 each week so we can start off well at 9 a.m. Please give us a call if you're running late - clubhouse number is 828-884-7825. Watch for emails if it looks like we will be rained out. 

 

CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace


I put a lot into one week:  traveled to Waynesville for 1 day of the annual 5-day “Gourd Gathering” show.  So much to see and do at those events, which was in its 22nd year!  The day I went I taught a class on sculpting a sheep on a mini warty gourd.  My grandson Cooper assisted me and was a big hit.  The class was all ladies who were determined to master our clay-of-choice “Quikwood”, which is a 2-part, epoxy that, once mixed, hardens in 15 minutes!  So I showed how to work in layers.  A great thing about Quikwood (no “c” in the name) is that it self-adheres to the gourd.  You can see more photos and hear about this show at: gourdgathering.org

This August, right here in Cedar Mountain, will be the annual “Mountain Gourd Gathering” which will be our 16th year.  I will teach only 1 class during this 3-day event as I stay busy being the host.  My contact is: chris_p_artist@yahoo.com.   

 Finally back home I visited the nursing home where I work on Sunday and enjoyed a church service from Destiny Church.  They come there every 2nd Sunday at 1pm.

School is out now for students but not teachers so on Monday I took my grandson to the nursing home (Sapphire Ridge; old Accordius Health & Brian Center) as his mom’s a teacher.  Outside in the beautiful “Alice’s Garden” we weeded, watered & snipped for 2 hours.  Cooper loves anything outside and I love having his help!  Next week the Transylvania Boys & Girls Club begins their summer camp program and Coop’s will be attending that.     

So the summer months are upon us; they’ll fly by.  Summer officially begins on June 20th.  Actually this whole year feels like it’s flying by!  Is it just me?  There’s just 168 days left until Thanksgiving, and 195 days until Christmas. 

 

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young

My honey and I attended the Cedar Mountain Community Center potluck and program last Monday, the food was good, the entertainment even better, and the parking lot was overrun.


Our own hillbilly, Ron Chapman, gave a hilarious and informative talk on The Southern Mountain Dialect. He delved into the origins of our unique way of speaking, how it has evolved over time, and what makes our dialect so special.  We learned that hillbillies seem to have an aversion for the letters W and R.  For example the word arrow might be pronounced era.  More is mo and shower shar.  PIC
