My sweet husband, decided that he was taking me to lunch on Monday to Chattanooga, TN. He was feeling a bit guilty I think, for having spent the past 5 weekends helping our next door neighbor help ready his rental property in Athens, GA.
The Carolina Jessamine was in full bloom, climbing the brick wall beside the restaurant.
Stickey Fingers is a favorite barbecue place of Jim's. The smoked brisket was succulent and delicious, but the best part was after lunch.
We took a walk around town. That is Jim.

On the way back to the car, we came upon a store aptly named "All books". It had books all right but more.
|Polly Henry spinning wool into yarn.|
Polly is a delightful woman in her nineties who says that "spinning makes you happy".
She has a business agreement with a shepherd who brings her all kinds of wool.
She tried to sell me a spinning wheel. I like to knit but I am not ready for spinning yet.

On the way home we stopped to look at outdoor umbrellas and furniture.
|Love these colors!|

|Never saw an umbrella made of "grass".|
Another stop before home: Pikes Nursery: Some pretty bloom shots for your viewing.
I just love anemones, don't you!

Aren't these orchids gorgeous! I am going to buy one someday just to see if I can keep it alive. :o)
Thanks for visiting today my friend. May the peace and happiness of our Lord, Jesus be with you!
