Saxapahaw OktoberFest + music on shuffle + Foodimentary

I was channel surfing this morning and stumbled across Every Which Way But Loose on REELZ channel.  Yeah, yeah, I know it’s beautiful outside. I can see out my window … but I woke up with a scratchy throat and am still in my pj’s working on my second coffee.  Now, before you bash me for indulging in a little Clint Eastwood and Clyde, the orangutan, listen up … it was NOT about the movie.  Back in a former life working for Elektra/Asylum Records, I was on the road with Eddie Rabbitt who wrote the theme song.  Nostalgia got the better of me and I began to pull vinyl out of my closet remembering the dark-eyed, handsome Irish man with a wicked sense of humor who was a little country and a lot rockabilly.  I miss you, old friend!

Well, I already know where I’ll be next weekend.  I’m sure y’all have caught on to my love affair with Saxapahaw by now. I do tend to go on about a passion, don’t I?  And what would be wrong with that?


Saxapahaw’s Annual Fall Festival takes place on three stages this year, The HayWagon Stage at the Farmers’ Market, the NEW River Amphitheater and The Haw River Ballroom featuring The Onyx Club Boys, The Rye Mountain Boys, Gasoline Stove Diali Cissokho & Kairaba and Birds and Arrows PLUS a Harvest Festival and Market, BBQ and Brews and lots of fun activities for kids! Details to come!

Today is National World Food Day!  Thanks, John-Bryan Hopkins.

Dear last night’s dinner guests,
Thank you for being my test subjects for a new cornbread recipe.  Really loved having you all on my back porch! 
Love, the cook
ps.   Shucks y’all … one of my followers sent me this YouTube clip earlier this week in case I’m looking for a new way to shuck corn.  It cracked me up.
