First of all, I want to say thanks to all of you for the birthday wishes. I had a great birthday! No big party, just a trip through Asheville, Brevard and on to Highlands to deliver my work at The Bascom. This covered bridge is the entrance to the gallery and it just gets better. The place is stunning!
By the time I got to the front door with my work, I was just about to hyperventilate. I can't wait to see my barns in this barn! There is an opening gala this coming weekend and for just $2500 you get invited to the Friday night dinner (cocktail attire please) and the Saturday bluegrass, barbeque, tickets for four and a table that will seat 8-10 of your cloesest friends. Surely these folks will want to buy a BARN!!!
We had dinner in Highlands, OMG, the food!! The town is heavily laden with meat eaters apparently and we had a hard time finding a restaurant, but finally decided on Wolfgang's. Our server suggested letting the chef prepare a vegetarian entree for us and it was just unreal. I never knew vegetables could have those flavors! We visited galleries in Brevard and Asheville, and quite honestly my head is just about to explode with art! We also stopped by and toured the college campus of Warren Wilson in Asheville, they have a MFA in Creative Writing and this school is one of Wesley's finalists. Really beautiful school. Thanks to Gerry and Wesley for a perfect birthday. What could be better, fresh mountian air, mountain streams, eating amazing food for two days, and just having a great time together! thanks family!!!

It is pretty- we were through there when we took our trip to see water falls.
Guess who is at my house-in an RV is that a big enough hint?

Oh Tracey what a great birthday! Isn't the Bascom amazing? And Wolfgang's is one of my favorite restaurants -- and you got a special from the chef! WOW must have been delicious.

Hey Ang, great idea, I have a LOT of shards, Gay you are too sweet and I can't believe you have kids my age! Tig, just my kind of search word, too funny, M. I bet Linda is there! and Judy, yes, the Wolfgang chef special was unreal! I thought Wesley was going to pick up her finished plate and lick the dish!! So good to hear from all of you this morning, I missed everyone while in the Mts.

Tracey, I saw your work in the Bascom and was excited to see it there! Great job - impressive show. The Bascom is a lovely space, too.
