Where in Anderson: eating?

Filed under: Where in Anderson? — lessie @ 9:25 pm

Hmmmm….Where in Anderson would you find peanuts (gratis), lemonade, malt vinegar, a BAG OF FRIES, thick hamburgers, and oh-so-elegant tableware?

Another of my favorite sights in Spring. Old North Anderson is covered in Dogwoods.

Wild Azalea?

Filed under: Spring & Summer — lessie @ 9:50 pm

My nose is dripping, my voice is 150 octaves deeper, and I’m officially a mouth breather. Pollen is here. But aren’t these wild azaleas beautiful? They remind me of my mom — because she loves them. Some beautiful things are worth the pain of allergies. 🙂 Another view here.

Little Love

Also at the yard sale, we met this adorable chihuahua and shih-tzu mix. Just a teeny tiney cutie. Her mother was nice too.

Baby Feet

The sun seemed to fall so perfectly on these little, precious baby feet! The spring is yard sale time. Perfect weather except for the pollen. 🙂 (Another view is here.)

Where in Anderson: Geodetic Survey

Filed under: Where in Anderson? — lessie @ 3:27 am

I looked. And looked again. U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey? Whaaaa? I’ve only seen this one other time — at Ceasar’s Head State Park. (Not that I”m all hip to surveys and geodetic thing-a-ma-bobs.) Look at the date: 1933. Cool. Elevation: 797.226 feet. Above sea level, I’m guessing. What is “R 6”? Now for the big question: WHERE IN ANDERSON is this U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey Benchmark? (That you better not disturb, at risk of a $250 fine!) Any knowledgable folks out there? You won’t guess it unless you’ve happened to have seen it. Because in my opinion it’s in a VERY weird place. I wonder why it’s THERE… Can’t wait to see your respones. 🙂 (Another view is here.)

Bubbling Pie

The owner at New York Pizza was really nice and let me take his pic. The restaurant uses fresh and excellent-smelling ingredients. Garlic, my fav.

New York Pizza

Filed under: Restaurants and Commerce — lessie @ 5:13 pm

Kristin and Jon introduced me to New York Pizza, near Scoops, just across the way from PetSmart and AmStar. I might have lived my entire life without its fresh ingredients and hand-tossed crust. Oh, and the garlic knots are pretty darn good, too! It’s a fun restaurant with good food. Check it out. Oh, and Happy Birthday, Jon! (Thanks to you and Kristin for buying me all that delicious pizza!) Another view is here.

Don’t Tap on the Glass

Filed under: Arts Center, Bay 3, Visitors Center — lessie @ 4:59 pm

This is one of those photos that I post knowing it could be so much better. But I love the subject! I was thrilled to see such a 3-D display at the Anderson Arts Center Juried Art Show: fish swimming in air. One thing I might have done better is to have focused on one fish in particular. They are all so different. But I tried instead to capture the overall effect produced by the artist, Joshua Davis of Starr. Good job, man!

Some people love clothes, some shoes, some cars — me? Pottery. The colors used in the above piece just grab me. (Wish my photo did the color more justice.) And of course, the texture is so cool. And the sleek black neck. 🙂 I wish I could remember the artist’s name. Anderson Arts Center Juried Art Show.
