Every October some 7,000 plus people descend on tiny Lewisburg, West Virginia to get a…
And tasting there was!
Dozens of booths are set up along main street selling everything from ribs to gold dusted tortes! Items go for $1-8 and are small to medium size so you can “taste” different dishes, it’s like tapas street-fair style. A quarter of the proceeds go to Carnegie Hall (the other Carnegie) to fund their fantastic arts programs.

I LOVE THIS WOMEN! Beth White has known me since I was born and has been an amazing dance teacher, colleague, and friend to me throughout my life. And, yeah, she is a gorgeous clown on the side!

(sorry, it was really too dark out to take this picture, but you get the idea :))
More family and food is on the agenda for today. And I am DETERMINED to get a run in this evening (I could use any words of encouragement you have for me!)
Enjoy your Sunday and I hope it’s SUNNY!
