While we were waiting for a table the other day at The Pisgah Inn, my mother-in-law went into the gift shop and bought me this new T-shirt. Her choice of a “Deliverance-style” message might give you an idea of why I think my mother-in-law is the best, lol.

Tuesday we drove over to Asheville to take Cindy’s mom and dad to the Biltmore Estate Gate House Shop. This is an annual stop for Cindy’s mom, but Cindy and I had never been to it before so it was a first time treat for the two of us. One of the nice things about […]
