Hollywood Pictures Inc in Fairview

In the 1920's it seemed the whole country was caught up in excitement about films and Hollywood.    Asheville and Western North Carolina were well aware of the hoopla of Hollywood.   In fact, Hollywood (or at least filmmaking) was already beginning to come to Western NC.I recently stumble across an article from the Jun 6 1926 issue of The Asheville Citizen Times which mentions that Hollywood Pictures Inc, was planning to film just south of Asheville, near Fairview.  But....was this really…See More

The Sultan's Dream

The Sultan’s Dream (Part of Living Poem) When it comes to walking, the jig’s up.No more fit lad sitting at the pub.No more flim-flam smiling with a limp. See how the legs totter and the torso leans.Do you know what a lame sultan dreams?Of reclining on a divan wearing pantaloons, Comparing his plight to a mountaineer’sNegotiating an icy bluff in a fierce wind,And then lounging in a tent to unwind. Which…See More

I've heard rimption before-way back sometime-and now its like a feather tickling my brain for me to remember who I used to be around that said it. For some reason I don't think it was a family member. I hope my brain retrieves the information-because I'm interested in the word now! I like your suspection about filling to the "rim" and bet you are totally right on it too.

Thank you for taking the time to comment!

Hey Betty! So glad you liked the picture I used! It's my grandmothers family. Her name was Gazzie Truett. She was the first born of her family. She is the 3rd one from the left on the first row. I've never heard about the traveling photographers-but I bet that's how the picture was taken. Thank you for the comment-and for letting me feature your great essay!

Thank you for the insightful comment on the Vocabulary Test. Especially interesting was your explanation about budget and blue john-since I've never heard those before. Your comment reminded me-I used to call my girls fussy-budgets when they were babies and crying alot. I have no clue where I picked it up from though. Our language and the way we use it from place to place is very interesting!
