It snowed on Tuesday, January 20, 2009, 4 inches. All the schools were closed, even Fort Bragg was closed! The kids were out of school and had a great time building snowmen, sledding, and making snow angels. The last time they had snow here was four years ago.
We went to a Rhonda Vincent and the Rage bluegrass concert last night (1/02/09) at the Rudy Theatre in Selma, NC. Martha White is her sponsor, the last picture is the logo on her bus. The theatre is small, like the old movie theatres were, we sat in the 7th row, great seats. If you like bluegrass music, be sure to go see her.
We went to Savannah in December, it was sunny and 74. We took the trolley tour through the city, saw some beautiful Savannah homes, alot of history. The smallest home (800 sq ft) in the city, sold for $250 K in 2007. We also walked the downtown Savannah area and shops in the square. Savannah has a river front district that we did not have time to see, so we hope to go back one day.
We had the lunch buffet at Lady & Sons (Paula Deen's) restaurant. As we were seated a waiter brought us Paula's famous hoe cakes, which are a small plate sized cornbread/pancake, and cheesie biscuits. That was the beginning of a delicious meal, southern style. The best fried chicken, mac and cheese, and greens. A true southern feast! After lunch we went to the gift shop. I purchased Paula's book, a story of her life, which is a very interesting read.
