… so sad to be reminded of that horrible day… that morning I was scheduled to have a 9am conference call with someone… and found out later his wife and mother-in-law were on that first plane to hit the towers…
… Matt and I were in Harris Hardware today and I decided I wanted to meet this “plumbing lady” I keep hearing so much about around town! Well, here she is… her name is Barbara. The plumbing lady knows more about do-it-yourself plumbing repair than anyone else in town apparently… go, Barbara!

… Oh, dear, I may have created a monster… I had an old gift certificate to use up, and treated Matt today to his first ever massage at Elements Spa… and (as I should have predicted) he LOVED it, I mean really, really loved it!

… my sweet friend Kim Provost, owner of Hunters & Gatherers (pictured on the right here), serving up some wild concoction drink tonight at Gallery Walk… which if I hadn’t had a glass of, I would be able to remember the name of her friend and employee pictured here (on the left) with her. :-) Notice the “I Love Brevard” t-shirts in the background!
… this is Bridget from Razor’s Edge and she cut my hair today (first time ever getting my hair cut in Brevard)… whew, and I’m so glad I no longer have to drive all the way to Asheville to get my hair cut… :-) Thanks, Bridget!

… only the best “all natural & no preservatives”corn for our squirrels! I used to feed them shelled peanuts from Ingles ($7.98/bag that lasted 3-4 days), but switched to this corn from Ace Hardware ($2.19/bag that lasts three weeks)… that’s a $56/month savings!
… the old Grover’s Supply space on Main Street… I think this would be a perfect place for Poppies to relocate (do not get me started on the tacky way they’re being forced out of their current store space on Asheville Highway)… I for one, will not be shopping at the organic foods store that’s moving in to Poppie’s old space. Was anyone else offended by that article in the paper this week where the owner of the old Popppie’s location was interviewed? Wow, in the span of what was probably a 5-minute interview, he likely succeeded in offending the entire community of Brevard. Way to get the community excited about a new store… not.
… Louie’s afternoon at Mountain Mutts getting groomed was (much to my relief) a great experience… and he looks fantastic to boot! :-) Tomorrow it’s Lucas’ turn for a bath and grooming. Looks like we have a terrific new groomer here in Brevard… yay!! :-)
… enjoyed lunch sitting beside these beautiful flowers out in front of Quotations… with Marlaine and Louie (his first time at a restaurant, he was such a good boy!… sat in his chair and everything)…. :-)
… where else (besides in Brevard) can you do your work in front of a waterfall?… Matt & Matt swam while I worked… all fun and games until “Matt 1” came face-to-face with a copperhead snake…. everyone out of the water!
