    Vintage Cooking

    Hey, thanks for stopping by! I’d planned to serve lunch to guests, today, but my new stove is back in the shop and this older model simply won’t suffice…alas. I’ll see what I can do about getting a fire started in the fireplace…

    In the meantime, you can visit my gallery to browse through a variety of prints offered featuring my photography. This old wooden cabin is located at the Grist Mill in Cades Cove, a verdant valley of the Smoky Mountains near Townsend, Tennessee.


  • Kiwi Abstract

    This abstract concentric graphic artwork features an earth tones color palette, texture, symmetry, and, a green center which reminded me of a sliced kiwifruit. If you like my design, you can find many cool items in these shops –


  • Time for Change

    Earlier, I stopped in at a nearby grocery store to shop for ingredients to make my world famous spaghetti. Well, it’s really only known locally – so, small world famous? Hmm… Whatever the case, Sriracha Sauce continues to be unavailable in the area. Oh, and I purchased some lottery tickets.

    As usual, I was second in line at the customer service counter, waiting behind an elderly woman going through the process of returning an item. Apparently, there were complications, and, once concluded, she forgot to take her bag. Fortunately, there were no coupons or checkbooks involved, so the wait wasn’t too long.

    Of course, I’d like to win the lottery, but I was also there to make change. So, I purchased $5 worth of tickets and handed the cashier a $20 bill. She printed the tickets, put my money into the cash register, closed the drawer and handed me a $5 bill as change.

    “Hey, I gave you $20. You owe me $15”. She shot me a suspicious glance, as if questioning whether or not I was trying to pull the wool over her eyes, then reopened the register to remark, “Oh, you’re right. I accidentally put your $20 bill into the $10 slot”. We chuckled and I smiled, until she put another $5 bill on the counter, adding “Here you are. Sorry about that”.

    I said, “Hey, hey, that’s only $10, now…you still owe me another $5″. Momentarily dumbfounded, she added another $5 to the mix and, finally, we were square. As I turned to begin shopping, I thought to myself…

    the third time is the charm!

    Geez.
