Cullowhee - Bring Back The Magic



Ed Sullivan was born today in 1901. I remember him best for having the Beatles on in 1964.

Did you know according to Wikipedia - "There was another side to Sullivan: he could be very quick to take offense if he felt he had been crossed, and could hold a grudge for a long time. This could unfortunately be seen as a part of his TV personality. Jackie Mason, Bo Diddley, Buddy Holly, and The Doors became intimately familiar with Sullivan's negative side. Paul McCartney once said he ran into Ed a few years after the Beatles famous appearances in 1964 and 1965. He said "Ed acted as if he didn't know or failed to remember me"."


Update on our neighborhood flooding - the street is back - not totally, but much better.



This weekend we went to Cullowhee, North Carolina - home of Western Carolina University which I have to say is one beautiful university. We got in late Friday night and it was pitch black and pouring rain. I had an address to the GPS and I had the actual address which was different. Anyway - we arrived - finally - a little grumpy and frazzled. It was a gorgeous cabin.



Here is Chatty and Andy - grandpa was going to watch him and Kelly, my daughter, and I were going to go to the college and see the band Cullowhee. I had heard their songs before - they are at the bottom right of my blog - but had never seen them in person. (More about the band tomorrow). My hair when there is moisture around - kind of frizzes and balloons out!!!!!!!

Here's my little guy - The King - he sures knows how to relax and enjoy!

Don't you love his smile!

"Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy." -Thich Nhat Hanh

He is one of my sources of joy!

Love,

Chatty

What a neat trip for you all! Nothing better than a big rocker, on a wide porch, preferably a log cabin....stress breaker!!!
