Small town

Well another Sunday has rolled around all to fast and tomorrow is Monday back to work on Monday. While reading Book Page America's Book Review I discovered several things. In the Fall 2 books are coming out that I will buy and read the first Midnight by Sister Souljah comes out in October, and 2nd A Mercy by Toni Morrison out in November. These books should be very good reads. So this means I will have something to look forward to this Fall. The Summer Reading section has a book that I am interested in reading The Sweetgum Knit Lit Society by Beth Pattillo. Tuesday's payday so a trip to Books-A-Million after work to see if they have the book in stock. July 29th is a very important day here in Asheboro after 14 years finally the citizens of this City get a chance to vote for 1. on-premises and off premises sale of Malt beverages 2. for the on-premises sales of fortified wine 3. for the operation of ABC stores 4. for the sale of mixed beverages in hotels, restaurants, private clubs, community theaters, convention centers. I think I have all of that right. All I know is I hope all of this passes. I am ready for a few good restaurants, and I am tired of going to Randleman to buy my wine and beer. So it is a big deal here and of course the local paper is full of editorials on all the deaths that will be caused and the abuse families will suffer. If the referendum does not pass this time I will probably be in my sixties before we get another chance to vote. The people against who want the City to remain dry are planning a march the Sunday before the vote. Oh well if it does not pass I will have to keep driving to Randleman for my beer and wine and to Greensboro for a good restaurant. I did cast on a dishcloth yesterday posting a picture when its finished.

I feel you 100% on the dry county issue. We also live in a dry county and have to drive to another city to buy wine and beer. It is very frustrating! Especially for my husband who is originally from Chile where they drink wine almost every meal!
I hope they change the rules. Sadly, it didn't change for us when voting happened. :( Too many against it.

I hope you got your new book! :)
