Sunday Guest Star

A very quick Ayla, Iza and Marley came by to find me this weekend.   They said, “Grovewood Cafe Asheville NC!…Well, Grovewood Gallery. You are in front of the cafe.”  And indeed we are.   The Grovewood Gallery is part of the Homespun shops as part of the Biltmore Industries.  There is a car gallery, a gallery of the some of the spinning stuff, a little artist’s shop and the cafe.  On the other side is the Grove Park Inn where F. Scott Fitzgerald used to stay in Asheville when Zelda was in the sanitarium in the city.   He liked the window over the entrance so he could watch the women coming in to the hotel…

I have to say that it sounds like Ayla, Iza and Marley worked quite hard to find me, “We knew nothing about the dog, and we searched fruitlessly for it for over a half hour. So we went back and examined the picture carefully. There, we found a clue that led us to a picture that had the statue of the Bein behind the dog in it. A quick second source showed the dog too!It was amazing how many keyword combinations describing that dog DIDNT lead us anywhere!”   I am surprised that so many cats would look that hard.  Perhaps I should start offering prizes…

Marg said, “Gosh, I only live two hours from there and I sure didn’t know anything about it. It must be a great place.”  Asheville is definitely worth a tour as there are more things happening there than we thought.  It’s a little expensive for that part of the country but it’s nice and apparently it’s not too hot in the summer (all you southerners can tell the Woman if that’s really true or not.)





  1. Very neat. My SS is a F. Scott Fitzgerald fan and therefore very interested in what you told us.

  2. Hooray for the smart ones! Hey, we’ve been to Asheville and I’ve never seen that place.

  3. We are so happy that Iza, Ayla and Marley finally got one!! We didn’t know where you were. We gotta get out more often.
