Our Schedule

The good news is that me and the Missus--I have been in Rockford too long--are leaving on Friday, January 28.  We're headed South with stops in Louisville and Asheville to see old friends, Chapel Hill for four nights visiting children and grandchildren, and then to Sullivan's Island, where a kind friend, whom some of my readers know, has generously loaned us his beach cottage.

We shall be gone four or five weeks, and there may be a few interruptions.  I shall keep the dialogue on art going, and Rex has forced me to learn how to use Dropbox, so I can transfer podcasts to be edited easily.  We shall also be doing some joint podcasts long-distance.

If I don't fall too far into dissipation, we plan to do some sight-seeing around Charleston County, and I'll try to pst some photographs.

If anyone is in the area during February and would like to link up, just send a message to Contact US.

Or, if we are "friends" on Facebook, just message me there.

    Safe travels, Dr. Fleming. It is my understanding that the redfish are in the shallow flats at low tide now. Bring your fly rod.

    Resist the urge to run out into the darkness for another bottle of wine. Send a scout with younger knees who is more familiar with the terrain.

    Sounds lovely. Be sure to stop at the Bracken Mountain Bakery in Brevard, NC, for some Orange Cardamom rolls and coffee, then take the Blue Ridge Parkway the last 40 miles into Asheville (The Haight-Asbury of the Blue Ridge). It’s tempting to think about heading over to Charleston. Friend Jack knows some good places. I’ll see.

    Well, it’s Saturday and you must be in Chapel Hill by now and probably drove past Belmont. The Downtown is really quite nice with some fine restaurants and a park. One small restaurant is run by the sisters of Mercy who care for disabled residents. You can get a superb lunch there while supporting Mercy House. Belmont Abbey College is also nearby. It has been in Belmont for over 100 years and is run by the Benedictine Monks.
