Trip to Saluda

A week ago or so, I visited Saluda, NC, with my wife. Her family has had a place there for nearly 100 years so it's definitely like stepping back in time.

Our trip up saw two items of interest. First, the back road we used to get there from Easley, SC, had a lot of traffic coming down the mountain...bike traffic, that is.



Second, we saw a typewriter repair van! I knew I was in the country then. No broadband needed! I never expected to see anything like that. (Sorry I wasn't quick enough with the camera)









While there, we ate a tasty lunch at the Whistle Stop (see menu, though my chicken quesadilla's aren't on it) and admired the GIANT ice cream cones coming out of Fudge Mountain in the barn next door but didn't get any.

  • Six Feet Under finale... your thoughts?
    OK everyone, take a deep breath and just relax--it's a TV show, not the end of world.
    Bookmarked, nice to see some decent content for a change. FYI have you seen this we've got a new feature, the 'Flag blog' button, which is inconveniently located between the 'Get Your Own Blog' and 'Next Blog' buttons so that we would presumably be getting some flags on error alone (although if one happens to notice it, you can unflag a blog). I don't know about this, what one person finds offensive is anothers cup of tea? Just my 2 cents, Daily Horoscopes .

    OLD FRIENDS
    Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades.
    Over the years, they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures.
    Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to
    play cards. One day, they were playing cards when one looked at the other
    and said, "Now don't get mad at me ... I know we've been friends
    for a long time ...but I just can't think of your name! I've thought and
    thought, but I can't remember it. Please tell me what your name is." Her
    friend glared at her. For at least three minutes she just stared and glared
    at her.
    Finally she said, "How soon do you need to know?" MORE FROM landscape photo
