I never post (or forward) things like this, but I got this email from my aunt and it provided such a fantastic giggle first thing in the morning that I absolutely had to share. Enjoy!
Never Argue with a Woman
One morning, the husband returns the boat to their lakeside
cottage after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap.
Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out.
She motors out a short distance, anchors, puts her feet up,
and begins to read her book.
The peace and solitude are magnificent.
Along comes a Fish and Game Warden in his boat.
He pulls up alongside the woman and says, ‘Good morning, Ma’am. What are you doing?’
‘Reading a book,’ she replies, (thinking, ‘Isn’t that obvious?’)
‘You’re in a Restricted Fishing Area,’ he informs her.
‘I’m sorry, officer, but I’m not fishing. I’m reading.’
‘Yes, but I see you have all the equipment.
For all I know you could start at any moment.
I’ll have to take you in and write you up.’
‘If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with sexual assault,’ says the woman.
‘But I haven’t even touched you,’ says the Game Warden.
‘That’s true, but you have all the equipment..
For all I know you could start at any moment.’
‘Have a nice day ma’am,’ and he left.
Never argue with a woman who reads.
It’s likely she can also think.

I’ve been feeling tired lately, so I decided laziness was in order and rather than focusing on the business, I turned my attention the Slow Food Challenge. Continue reading

And so, our love affair with Asheville continues. This weekend we had the pleasure of vending at the Lexington Avenue Arts and Fun Festival (LAAFF). It was the first time for us, and the 10th year for them. I must say that it was the most fun we’ve had in quite some time. As usual, I made the rounds and took tons of pictures to share.
