Jocassee Falls – A Preview

My brother, Houston, recently informed me that he starts feeling anxious when I don’t update this blog often enough. I’m afraid I’ve given him ample reason to be irritated over the last week or so.

Perhaps it was even because I spent college summers working maintenance – painting and waxing … Continue reading Old School Charm
