This is the Mast Store Annex as scene from underneath the tree near the old bathrooms in Valle Crucis park. Yesterday I took a small walk in the park. Except for the red roof of the store, everything seemed to be colored linen white, polarizer blue and appalachian spring green. Ya know what I mean? Planet Earth was colored some intense shades.
Oh and, the excitement of the day? Some friends and I listened on the police scanner as the deputies chased some foolish young man attached to a Honda crotch rocket fly through the town of Boone at speeds in excess of 130 mph. My editor yelled at me, " Hey Marie, go get a photo." I laughed. "Yeah, let's fire up the old news helicopter parked out back." Fortunately, the maniac motorcyclist escaped without becoming a mere greasy spot on the road and he didn't hurt anyone else in the process. Unfortunately, (that is, unless you are a Smokey and the Bandit fan ) he also eluded the law. He was wearing a red helmet, was riding a silver and red Honda bike and was last seen in Trade, Tennessee.
Speaking of Tennessee and colors, yesterday looked just like to the Appalachia flag on the top of my side bar designed by the talented Tennessee Jed. This post explains his philosophy in flying the Appalachia flag. He is a wise Obvious Prophet, that Jed, he is.
