CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace
LASTING FRIENDSHIPS After 14 years gone my good friend, Lynne Baldwin, returned to Brevard for her niece’s wedding in Hendersonville. After the wedding Lynne spent 3 lovely days with me; my pups felt she came to visit them though! Lynne has lived in Illinois then California until last year when she moved to Florida, where she now resides. That’s a lot closer.
We spent the 2nd day here visiting the French Broad Weaver’s workhouse on Williamson Creek Road where they meet every Tuesday. Lynne used to be a member of that group! This same day we visited several shops in downtown Brevard where Lynne ran into an even longer friend, quite by surprise; pictured above are Lynne on the left, with her friend-from-the-past, Kay.

While here, Lynne was fondly remembered by several folks she hadn’t seen in 14 years, which was fun & up-lifting. She hopes to return soon for a longer visit. Me too! JUNE CELEBRATIONS:
BIRTHDAYS - Marshall Duke June 11th, Evie Rackley June 14th. Doug Pace on the 22nd and both Lenoir Bishop & Billy Carden share the same birthday on June 23rd.
ANNIVERSARIES - Bobby & Lucy Jones’ anniversary is June 5th. Allen & Nancy Cadora celebrated 64 years together June 11th.
WHAT’S YOURS? I have a long list of July celebrations so far, and would love to add yours to it. Please send your July dates to me for publication next month. If I missed your June birthday or anniversary I’ll be happy to mention it in next week’s column if you email it to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (828)885-2103.

THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY:
CRAFTING NOVELS USING LOCAL HISTORY AND FOLKLORE
Meet Sharyn McCrumb, an award-winning writer beloved for her Appalachian Ballad novels, set in the North Carolina/Tennessee Mountains. She compares her best-sellers to Appalachian quilts, “brightly colored scraps of legends, ballads, fragments of rural life and local tragedy, pieced together into a complex whole that tells not only a story, but also a deeper truth about the culture of the mountain South.”

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young
I was getting ready to finish up the news at 5:38pm Tuesday night when the power went out. Estimated time for power on was 10:15 pm. We were lucky to have the motor home to retreat to but no internet. I could write but not send the news. Fortunately we had two single serving pizzas in the freezer and fixed one for our supper in the toaster oven. We watched TV until after the projected return of power and I went for a nap. The power came on at 12:38 am and it’s now way after 2pm. Yawn.
