AHHHHH-CHOO! Remember to get a huge supply of tissues and nose spray. Spring has sprung and people are sneezing their heads off! The trees and flowers are absolutely gorgeous this year, just a garden of beauty wherever you look! Birds flying and singing everywhere, hummers, chipmunks scurrying around and all the animals lying on their backs soaking up the warm sunshine! What are people doing? Sneezing
Wow, things are really gearing up at The Short Mountain Trading Post! We can never designate what day is going to be busier. We are regularly open Thursday through Saturday from 10 to 5. I was working this Sunday at the Post, so I opened while I was there and had a very nice group or two of folks stop by. So, ya' never know
Everyone is naming their booths in the Barn. We have: Savannah's Loft, The Owl's Nest, Southern Wisdom, Artsy Annie's and Granny's Gifts. More are to be added. Your favorite jams and Jellies have arrived and are already selling like crazy! Our exciting and fully stocked Farmer's Market should be up and running by middle of this month with a wide assortment of fruits and veggies, homemade breads and pies and eggs. The Market will operate the same days as the Trading Post: Thursday through Saturday. Make sure and come by and see us
Our first Family Fun Flea Market Day will be Saturday May 2nd from 10 to 5. If you wish to set up a canopy or table call me for you free space, Savannah 615-464-7824. There will be something for everyone including JD at the grill handing out free lunch. Several raffles will be going on plus craft demonstrations and a big sale up in the Loft! Don't miss out! Mark it on your calendar and bring family and friends
The Stillhouse Restaurant opens May 14th and will be open Thursday thru Sunday 12 to 9. For reservations visit: stillhouserestaurant.com. Also the Short Mountain Distillery will be releasing their 93 proof Tennessee Whiskey Bourbon. Suppy is limited so reserve yours today at: www.shortmountaindistillery.co
Well, I suppose all of you have heard by now that Hillary Clinton is running for president. The first woman president, how about that! She may not be wonder woman, but I'm sure she can do things that will make you wonder! She's always believed in the Open Door Policy: Bring Money and we'll Open the Door! Bill Clinton remarked, My wife says I never listen. At least, I think that's what she said. Well, we shall see what happens this election. Like I always say, no matter who gets elected, politicians and diapers need to be changed often, for the same reason! And then, remember well-behaved women rarely make history!
Well, Aunt Martha is at it again. She decided to rearrange all the furniture in the house. Festus always did say that toes were created to find furniture in the dark. Ummmm, let's say that Uncle has broken three toes since Martha did all the rearranging and never told Festus about it! Ouch! Since all he can do is sit around till his toes heal, he has claimed whiskey as his soup of the day! He keeps telling Martha that he is just going to retire and live off his savings. Aunt Martha says, and what will he live off of next week? He told her that he has learned how to double his money, he folds it and puts it back in his pocket! Martha is now convinced that Uncle Festus is definitely emotionally constipated. (Hey, don't blame me, folks, I'm only telling you what she said!) I do think, though, that Martha's comments this week just may have won by a whisker
Well, here comes the rain so gotta run. Remember to not drink orange juice right after you brush your teeth! Take care of each other, smile, laugh and drive carefully. Chat with all of you next week and I appreciate all the wonderful comments about my column and how much you folks enjoy reading it. Oh, I almost forgot, I have a friend who is looking for an old old truck. It does not need to run, as his wife needs it to take wedding pictures of the wedding parties out at their Country Barn studio. Call me if you have a truck from the 40's, 50's or 60's. Thanks.
Lots of hugs, Savannah
