This is our souvenir from last week’s great Christmas 2010 snowstorm. (Note: This post marks the start of my first ever “Project 365” about life in Brevard in a year’s time. Anyone else ever done one? Feel free to email me your sage advice. :-)

I’ve received many emails from people stopping by the blog (thank you all!)… Here’s one that really surprised me and made me smile: :-)
I love to read about Brevard. In 1989 I spent the summer at Camp Gwynn Valley and I have good memories. Great time! Love America!

While walking around downtown today, Matt and I stopped into the Transylvania Humane Society Thrift Shop to visit the cats up for adoption… and Rachel (pictured here) was ready to play! For a very fleeting moment I was tempted to take her home, but reminded myself we’re getting a new puppy in February… but *you’re* probably not getting a new puppy, and should adopt one! ;-) Email me the pics if you do!

The best place to get your fun on in Brevard – by far – is O.P. Taylor’s toy store! Just ask my 10-year-old. No, actually… ask me! I enjoy going there every bit as much as he does. We were in there today. Remember those old Magic 8-balls growing up, where you asked a yes/no question, and it gave you an answer?… Like, “As I see it, yes”…. “Don’t count on it”…”Concentrate, and ask again”…. They have those! I definitely should have gotten one. Maybe next time. :-) Plus, they have Legos, sea monkeys, Webkinz, and a zillion other toys that you don’t need, but gotta have… all in the coolest old building with great creaky floors. What’s your favorite part of a trip into O.P. Taylor’s?
