Yesterday, President Obama and the First Lady, Michelle Obama, stormed Asheville's River Arts District for a little taste of heaven, aka 12 Bones. 12 Bones BBQ is across the street from my pottery shop. There were city cops, county sheriffs, state troopers, and secret service surrounding/securing the joint. It was like a scene out of a movie. Guys with machine guns, helicoptors flyin' around, guys on the roof with binoculars, and of course the mob of Obama supporters across the street tryin' to snap a pic.

So, I'm hoping to see him walk into my shop today so that I can sell him a nice piece of NC pottery.



I LOVE This... every little interaction... Did you notice Michelle's Face when he sort of took control... and loved how she "tagged" him with the number... Well.. glad he's supporting the economy and I sure hope he stops by today...You can educate him on fine pottery!!!

WOW!! 12 Bones became our #1 joint in Asheville on out last trip to that great city. Didn't realize I had a presidential taste for food.

Hey, the cashier didn't have a chat with me and no one came rushing up from the back to shake MY hand. Darn!
