Some Friday Variety



Soon these will be on our peach trees.  Though not soon enough. 

Nice to know that Appalachian Folkways are being kept alive here.  

If you missed this classic, very southern, obituary that floated around the web this past week, then you really missed out.  Lucky for you I am passing along the link ;) 

Sadly Lynn's Paradise Cafe is no more.  *sniff*sniff* 

For a good read, Garden and Gun, whether on paper or on the web, cannot be beat.  

The weekend is upon us.....be good my friends.

  7. What!??? Lynn's Paradise Cafe closed? I'm in shock. This calls for a great amount of mourning. Loved that place. We stopped there once on a cross country drive because we had read about it in the book ROADFOOD. What a great place - both the crazy art and the awesome food. I'm sorry to hear it closed.

  12. Loved this! So by very southern, do you mean this is what southern obituaries sound like? Because our very northern obituaries are so stuffy, stiff, and boring. Thanks for sharing!

  18. oh my -- that obituary was so interesting and written in such a delightful "tongue in cheek" manner that I'm sure Mr. Stamps was a well loved, if slightly cantankerous, man! LOL! Thanks for sharing it!

    Sad to see a long loved establishment fade away but it seems to be happening more and more these days!

    I shall peruse Garden and Gun next -- can't wait to see what it is all about!

  25. I thought I was here but don't see the comment.

    So, I like the peach tree blooms. I used to have an almond tree. Looked almost exactly like a peach tree. I miss it. Thanks for the link.
