Not only does this stop show views both to the southeast and northwest, but they've a little shop inside, as well as a special display outside their door today. (This post is a duplicate of one being shown on my other blog, When I was 69)

(repost from When I was 69)
Lunch with(out) the animals
Actually most of them were out in the garden, and only one donkey came into my dining area, and was easily steered out to the garden by one of the staff, and that was before we ate.
I got there early, at The Bush Farmhouse, which has gone through several changes over the years When I moved here in 2007, it was a little farmers market which was owned by folks who soon became friends of mine. It was a bit pricy but local produce was available all year round.
Later owners put a lot of effort into raising various veggies right on the property...and those beds are still active.
OK, I've already shown you a lot, so let's do other photos tomorrow!
The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas-covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal, is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be. -Douglas Adams, author (11 Mar 1952-2001)

A fun juxtaposition of a sweet sign (Hey Hey Cupcakes) and a earth moving vehicle being carted behind a flat-bed truck, making it look as if it's flying
I had stimulated my appetite by walking around Lake Tomahawk earlier with a friend. More on that in another post.

There weren't as many pop-up tents or vendors at the Tailgate Market behind the First Baptist church this week. There didn't seem to be a big crowd of shoppers either. But the Mud Buddies said they did alright for an "off season" Saturday morning. The next tourist season will be October when people come to see the pretty fall foliage in the mountains.

Black Mountain NC has rocking chairs all over the place.
I sat in this one while waiting for a table outside at our local "Bistro". But while we had waited for 20 minutes, all the patio tables were designated for a party of 15 who had called in. We were already on the list, but somehow that reservation got precedence. We sat inside, but I wasn't happy about it.
True compassion recognizes that all the boundaries we perceive between ourselves and others are an illusion.
