I posted some other pictures of Black Mountain and the Swannanoa River over on other my blog "When I Was 69". There are so many of them, I can't get them all onto this blog!

A cold sunny day lets signs in shops across the street be reflected in the Ice Cream/Fudge shop. Since it was Sunday, many of the shops were closed, but not Kilwins! The Cherry Steet Kids toy store (sign reflected) was closed, as well as Knit Shop, Song of the Wood, etc. We have a pretty conservative business ownership that doesn't work on Sundays, I think. Many tourists (as well as locals) are disappointed.
This posting is being shared at Weekend Reflections. Come over to see more photos all over the world.

We have a little bit forecast tomorrow, but it's due to melt pretty quickly.
You all who live up in the real snow country, I know how tired of it you can get...but I just would like one or two days looking like this.
This is being sent to Friday Fences.

The way I learned math, if you go one mile out in all directions, that makes a circle two miles in diameter. I wonder if that's true. Somehow I think the "men" who did this survey made a square instead. I've always been a trouble maker.

|Rainy winter days are great for visiting galleries, here's Crimson Laurel Gallery (from the parking lot) in Bakersville, NC|
They have a great web page, and are well worth the hour drive from Black Mountain or Asheville.
A great thing to do on a rainy day.

Here's a contribution for the "Weekend Reflections" meme. Well, I would if I could...for some reason the link isn't working, so I'm not giving my picture to that meme yet. I'll keep looking later, and maybe it will be fixed. Nothing I can do about it at this point.

Rabbit Rabbit...which is supposed to mean something for good luck. I may not know the tradition, but I'm a tradition junkie already, borrowing many other people's traditions whenever I am so inclined. Native Americans, Mexicans, Irish, Celts, Norse, Romans, Greeks, Egyptian, Jews, Christians, Pagans, North Carolinians and so on.
Here is our first blog posting of one picture of Western North Carolina, around Black Mountain. I cheated and made a collage. I'll try harder to meet my own discipline. I'm really enjoying browsing through my photo collection to see what to share here.
Hope you'll enjoy this.
