Fun Fun Fun, No T-bird Required

Oh what fun's in store for you at the Scavenger Hunt Road Rally. John and I wish we could participate, but that wouldn't be fair. We did have a blast plotting the course and planning the clues, stops, and scavenger items.We discovered new, and rediscovered known, treasures of the area in which we settled. So rich in diversity that we had to pare down the course before the event became a Scavenger Hunt Road Sojourn. (We already have at least two more adventures tracked.)

For these two innkeepers, composing the clues has been quite a challenge. We wondered for a while if a graduate of Georgia Tech, and one from Wossamatta U, could find common ground. We did. Butting heads over the design of the commemorative t-shirt resulted in a fine looking piece of upper body wear, with no maiming or divorce.

Really, it has been a pleasure devising this Road Rally, and we're pleased and excited to be sharing it with you.

Loose Female in Towns County

An incident occurred recently in idyllic Towns County, in fact right here in The City of Hiawassee. I feel it is my duty to report it to the public.

On Monday last, the flashing lights of patrol cars grabbed John's and my attention as we wended our way down Chancey Drive.  Calls about the loose female traipsing wantonly on Bell Street had come in early. Law abiding citizens demanded she be apprehended before the activity she was conducting became wide-spread. The attractive, head-strong girl with big brown eyes showed no respect for the voices of authority. Officers ,hoping to keep this an isolated violation ,deemed physical action necessary. She demonstrated no malice as an officer, who apparently had some prior history with this type of behavior, placed an arm around her neck and led her from the kudzu field where she was happily chomping.

She is currently being held in a neighboring pasture. She appears to be content and shows no remorse for her morning "crime" spree.

I just adore living here!

Long and Winding

The long and winding road that leads to- - -exciting adventure, detecting, a secret destination, but mostly to fun! As if the delightful drive on mountain roads weren't enough, you'll be deciphering clues, collecting objects or photos,and racking-up points to win prizes (neat prizes) at the culmination of the 1st Scavenger Road Rally at Chancey Hill Inn Bed and Breakfast. Keep a sharp eye in route. You never know where a clue may be lurking.

Citizen's Arrest! Citizen's Arrest!

All the wines and foods were planned to compliment each other. We all went through Round 1 just as planned. Round 2, ditto. Then LO declared, "I'm going rogue."

She dared to pop one of the tiny apple pies intended for the Apfelwein into her mouth and followed it with, gasp, a slug of Mountain Harvest Red. The immortal words of Gomer Pyle went through my head and out my mouth, "Citizen's Arrest! Citizen's Arrest!" "Hummm yummm" said Liz. Then someone said, "Let me try it" as another mismatched duo disappeared. And then complete chaos reigned.

Whites with red pairings, reds with white pairings, and I just don't know what all. But you know, everything was good. The foods and wines all got along fine, like guests as a dinner party.The final Vine to Wine Weekend of 2013 was ... "Shazam!"
