vacation progress report

hey y'all!!!!

(i am practicing the local patois and getting quite good at it, if i do say so myself! admit it, you almost didn't recognize me there for a minute, did ya?! thought not! see?? i blend!) :)

as predicted we do not have unlimited t'internet here in our lovely mountain hideaway...but then...we have not had unlimited time, either, so that's actually worked out ok! the resort has wi-fi in their reception center, so i have been trying to stop down here every afternoon for an hour or so, to check email and so forth. i'm trying to post daily to webshots, since one of jeff's sisters was unable to make the trip due to a sudden illness, and she is following along at home.

if you are longing to see my complete set of photos to date... (in which case i beg of you to get a hobby or start an evening class!) ...following the link above will get you waaaaaaaaaay more mediocre snapshots than you ever imagined...and may well cure you for life of the desire to click random links! :)

in the meantime, here is some random beauty for ya: a statue's-eye-view of biltmore house, from the little gazebo on the hill. more pics..with follow!
