Truer words were never spoken Grand Brother! Been watching for a few days but not much time to actually hang around. However, I stop here for lunch with a little Toxic Brittany for desert.

Easter In The Alps

Denise and I spent this past Easter in Little Switzerland, North Carolina USA,
a historic little mountain retreat located just steps from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

This was a "w*rking" weekend for us; we hauled the Road King down in the truck
so we could also bring our office gear with us and earn some spondulicks over the weekend -
kind of a "pay as we play" sorta dealio.
As such, there are no photos to show from the 300-mile "commute" on the Parkway.

We hope you enjoy.

The specials at the Switzerland Cafe. This is going to be a great weekend!

Not long after I hit the road for home I was overcome by a powerful urge that was NOT to be denied. As in RIGHT NOW!

I took good advantage of the interstate construction going on next to me, hung an illegal (and a 'mite dangerous) u-turn, off-roaded through some dirt and gravel, quick-like stripped off my 'Stich and did my, um, bidness. (Hey, ya gotta love a porta-Johnny with a reclining seat!)

And then got a fun photo in return for my acute attack of gastrointestinal pain:


The things I do to entertain you folks. :-)
As an Indianapolis resident, I sincerely hope that is dirt on the lower left side of the pic.

Easter In The Alps

The drive down the Parkway to Little Switzerland on Friday afternoon made us mighty glad we were in the Limo -
thick, chewy fog most of the way, some rain, and cold. That evening at the Inn things only got worse, with the addition of a biting, piercing wind that seemed to penetrate everything.

We were up at 0300 on Saturday, grinding away at w*rk, and pretty frikkin' miserable at this point 'cause the heater in our room quit not long after we got up.
It got so bad at one point I had to take a long, steamy shower to keep my knees from knocking.

At dawn, Denise called down to the front desk to report our plight. Turns out a breaker had kicked somewhere, and with the flip of a switch we were back in heat, so to speak.

Along about noon, the weather did a similar about-face;
the fog suddenly disappeared, out popped the sun, dazzling in its intensity, and with it came waves of blessed warmth and a major uplift of our spirits.

The beauty of being self-employed is that (within reason) we set our own hours.

When the sun came out, it meant it was finally quittin' time.

I about ran the Road King out of gas. Mucho bad news in this part of the world. More on that later.

Saturday afternoon (with a full tank) we made our assault on Mount Mitchell:
