A Little Excitement To Share

This past Saturday, my sister, Anne, and I left home to drive up to Mountain City, Ga.  Home of Foxfire.  The very place where LMHC filmed our video, Appalachia Goodbye.  I have known about Foxfire for quite sometime…indeed, most Georgians are aware of the series of books that came from the English program at Rabun Gap Nacoochee School(and later Rabun County High School).  It’s a...

You’ll Never Believe Where We’re Playing Next!

Looks like we have one more winter blast before we get to officially say Hello Spring!  We are hoping to give it a little push when we play at Abbott’s Bar and Grill Sat, March 8.  This long standing neighborhood “joint” welcomes new faces and offers exceptional food (not the usual bar fare), excellent selection of adult beverages and some pretty good music.  We hope to see you...

Surprises…..Once In A Lifetime

Surprises that are once in a lifetime! There are really very few…speaking for myself. I’ve had friends give me wonderful surprise parties…but there was still an inkling that something was up….you know that “ I suspect” feeling? So… ‘So Far’…the true surprises that have happened to me were finding out the sex of my two children when they were born…not ahead of time(both of them wonderful...
