Twelve Bones Smokehouse

Folks in Asheville love their ribs and the best place
to eat the best ribs is at Twelve Bones Smokehouse in the River Arts District.
If you don't believe me ask Obama.  Yes, THE President himself.  The
last time he visited Asheville his first stop after getting off
Air Force One was, yup, Twelve Bones.
This place has it all..their food is delicious.
Check it out...Obama has -  twice.

Two Beauties Sizing Up Each Other

The Peacock
Pretty bird, Oh pretty bird
You walk like a chicken
And crow like a cat!
Pretty bird, Oh how lovely
You'll sit on my roof
And run from the dog!
Pretty Bird, Come eat from mine hand
Don't perch on the porch
Your poop's on the ground!
Pretty Bird, Silly bird
A tail five feet long
And a head with a fan!
Pretty Bird, Strut your stuff
Waddle around and shake like a jerk
Your feathers are grey underneath all the eyes
And your neck is blue and turquoise too!
Your eyes are black like cold dumb coal
Surrounded by black and white like two fish in a pot!
Come listen to my music or perch on my fence
You are a silly bird, I'll tell you again
Pretty Bird, Oh pretty bird
You walk like a chicken
And crow like a cat!

USS North Carolina

A visit to the USS North Carolina in Wilmington, NC
is well worth the time...It is an education in
ships, sailors and history.
