Bunny had this large china dinner set she wanted to sell,
and given that we would be in the neighborhood
(for medium values of “neighborhood”) we drove to Replacements, Ltd.
in the small town of McLeansville,
some three and a half hours from Brevard.
It's not a small operation:
And not just limited to plates.
They have crystal;
they have figurines;
they have … lots of stuff.
And for those of you who are not in the “neighborhood,” they ship as well.
Bunny and I stopped in Winston-Salem
for dinner on the way back to Brevard.
Inside the restaurant—
We didn't realize it was also a drive-thru restaurant.
And upon leaving,
we realized we should have driven through and not stopped at all
(the staff was wonderful,
the food wasn't so wonderful).

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
