Okay, so I was short on ideas for a 365 pic today… so here’s a shot of Ricky Worley (WSQL radio talent extraordinaire) and his girlfriend sister on their cruise this past week… Ricky so thoughtfully texted me this photo to remind me that he was on a cruise, and I wasn’t…. sweet guy, that Ricky. :-)

Name this entrance way! Oh, okay… it’s the front door to the Biltmore in Asheville. Spent the morning there (also taking a behind-the-scenes tour – it was great!)… love the Biltmore! Click below to see more pics…

This is Alex. Tonight he was working at Dugan’s Pub and was the best waiter ever. He was born and raised in Brevard… he’s a registered Republican (you go, Alex)… and his life motto (which he saw written on a rock somewhere one time) is “Never Give Up.” Continue reading
Okay, some of you already know of Matt’s dream to open a cupcake shop in downtown Brevard on Main Street. But I keep telling him the future is in whoopie pies (although he’s never quite bought my argument). Anyway, he’s never tried one … so when I happened to see some at Fresh Market in Hendersonville this afternoon, I picked some up. Result: he thinks they’re “okay”… still prefers the cupcake idea… and I think they’re a little gross… no, really gross.
If you like Twix bars, you’re gonna love the latest treat to hit the candy shelves at Downtown Chocolates: Caramel Cookie Bars! (yum!) I’ll try to let you know the next time I see something new, since, you know, we’re in there every week! ;-) Ann

Milkshakes at Rocky’s after school… made just the way we like ’em – with vanilla ice cream and just the right amount of chocolate syrup. We usually prefer Caleb to make our shakes, but he wasn’t working today… anyway, the shakes were great today!
Matt and I checked out the Twin Dragons Grand Buffet chinese restaurant for dinner tonight. We didn’t know what to expect… had never been there and had heard they have dirty floors (not naming names…), but the floors were pretty darn spotless, if you ask me. And, the sweet and sour chicken was good, too! My fortune cookie: “Creative and artistic people will visit your house.” Hmmmm… Ann xo

While killing time before Matt’s acting class in Flat Rock, we stopped in at the “Hand in Hand Gallery”… and saw some beautiful watercolors (gorgeous sunsets) by Jane Voorhees (and she was actually there in the store). Found some other nice things too… like some really nice pottery pieces and this pear painting that I might have bought for $450, had I been in an impulsive mood. :-)

There’s no better way to spend a Saturday night, than with good friends and great food! Matt and I love inviting ourselves over for dinner (well. practially inviting ourselves over for dinner) to the home of dear friends, Uncle John and Aunt Joanne (and Beau and Blue)… another reason we love living in Brevard! :-) Ann
The Co-ed Cinema has been Brevard’s movie theatre for 75 years running… and it’s one of my absolute favorite spots in downtown Brevard. Not only is it one of the very few one-room movie theatres left in the nation, but it always shows first-run movies… and the popcorn is the best in town! :-) Ann

It wasn’t until a few minutes ago – as I was crawling into bed after a long day (trust me, it was a very long day… a trip to the DMV office, two hours with a McAfee tech support specialist – need I say more?) – that I realized I didn’t grab a 365 photo today! So, here’s a lame excuse for a 365 photo – my night stand. I promise to do better tomorrow. Sweet dreams, you all! Ann ;-)
