The old saying of “Look what the cat dragged in” brought in our friend Sam from Alabama. Sam is up in our neck of the woods for a few weeks so she ventured over the mountain to hear friends play in the Blue Grass Festival.
My husband met Sam on the Internet. A bunch of bad biker dudes talk on the Internet and then decide to meet up somewhere in the country. This really raises all kind of stereotypes, most of which couldn’t be further from the truth with this crowd. The group is spread all over the country and get together formally once a year for the official forum reunion. When someone is traveling we always have a place to stay. Friends that go out of their way to make room for you. We have housed several friends that have been on the road and it is always an enjoyable visit.
Sam showed up late last night, her friends didn’t go on stage until 10pm so that meant she did not even get to our home until 12:30ish. We had planned on going to brunch late in the morning…
I had the BEST breakfast EVER. The Over Easy Cafe is nothing much to look at. It is one of those places that would be very easy to keep walking past if you were to peak in. Eh, lets keep moving would be a likely thought. It is very casual, a dive look to it. Thankfully there was not a terrible wait, 20 minutes. The rain and the threatening storm had a lot to do with that.

|I had the Zorba the Greek. An omlette with sundried tomatos, olives, feta and spinich. Kale and a biscuit. I cannot begin to tell you how delicious it was.|
I am loving my camera phone. I can take pictures incognito and I don’t feel like a tourist. The photos are not nearly as clear and there is a lot of noise but that is ok.
Sam the Auburn fan, shared with us a card that she has in her wallet. The Auburn University Creed..
Dessert was in order.
For some reason Asheville has a lot of gourmet chocolate shops. Not complaining one bit but it seems kind of odd. I don’t know if you have ever had Lavender Milk Chocolate but I will be indulging in it again in the near future.
Walking in and out of shops, dodging the rain we met the shop cat guarding the front door.
Mighty ferocious…not. I don’t think she weighed 4 lbs.
Love the name of this concert series…I tease the kids that they ride the short bus. I know, not very politically correct and I shouldn’t tease, don’t lecture me.
