CHRISTINE’S CORNER My “corners” were curves this week as I drove to Franklin (NC) on the “scenic” back roads. There are more curves going up through Lake Toxaway, Sapphire, Cashiers, Highlands (beautiful Highlands!), and on to Franklin. I was on Hwy. 64 all the way. It takes something important to take me that far away from Cedar Mountain; this was important. And fun! And only 62 miles one way. Our columnist Linda Young, as you now know, is engaged to be married to a talented gentleman (Richard) who has a very large home in Franklin that he plans to sell “hopefully before we’re married, in September”. His talent isn’t in snagging Linda (ahem) but in woodworking and stained glass. And, I understand he cooks too! I don’t know this firsthand yet, but he owns several hundred cookbooks. I drove with Linda in the front passenger seat and a “backseat driver in the back. We traveled to Franklin to have a look at this marvelous house we’ve heard so much about, and what a fun day we had! The house (for sale) is three stories tall including a fully finished basement and filled with the most amazing woodwork handmade by Richard himself. There were tables, benches, cabinets, and a most useful (and portable) kitchen island. “The island will be moving to Cedar Mountain with me.” says Richard. The yard showcases more of Richard’s talents as it has several unique, life-size buildings on it. First was a Lemonade Stand similar to ones I’d see in the Peanut cartoons growing up. And a Wishing Well! The one I liked most was a wooden “shed” for storing garden tools & shovels and such. The handle was a small garden trowel. We stopped snooping through two stories of Richard’s house to go eat lunch on Franklin’s Main Street and got too full for having to go back and explore the third floor still! My farm-raised Buffalo burger was superb, though I was fascinated with their Elk burger! Roland, the owner, and chef came out and thanked us for coming. He did the cooking himself. We promised to return. I may go back to Rockin’ Rollie Pollies Restaurant for lunch next week as Linda and I go back to Richard’s house to categorize some collectibles he wants to get into good homes. Is anyone here a bear collector? Boyd’s and Gund Bears plush & resin abound. There are a few train items, baskets & basket-making materials, and household furniture sets. Let me or Linda know! Finally, I must mention here one more March birthday that I left off last week. My grandson Levi will turn 12 on March 26th! Any others? Let me know at (828) 885-2103 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m gathering April birthdays & anniversaries now too. Enjoy this beautiful weather, and please remember to “spring forward” one hour this Saturday night.
AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Young
After what Christine wrote I don’t have much to say. I just hope I can survive all this chaos.
My dearest friend ever (BFF) called this morning from Iowa and said she was going to make the wedding cake for us. She used to do cake decorating so it should be spectacular.
Things are moving along.
