|Holiday Sweetgrass Baskets, Charleston, S.C.|
Charleston is famous for sweetgrass baskets and I have a secret connection. My friend Sandra had a booth at the hospital's employee craft sale today. Whenever I need something special for a gift or wedding present I ask her to bring me something in the price range I can afford. They are not cheap but everyone in the lowcountry appreciates the value of a beautiful sweetgrass basket. The basket making method came from Africa with the slaves and is passed down in families to this day.

|Youth Appreciation Banquet, Charleston, S.C.|
My honoree is the gal on the far right. Not only did she volunteer all summer but after taking a CPR class went home and recognized that her own father was having a stroke and kicked into action to get him prompt treatment. I was proud as punch. We have some amazing young people in the lowcountry. Congratulations!

I've attended a couple of events today but this was indeed the most colorful! The Caring Clown program of healthcare volunteers had a meeting at the hospital this evening. Do ya think they shared a few laughs?

|Ginkgo Biloba tree, Charles Town Landing, S.C.|
We did a quick walk around Charles Town Landing this morning and I happened to catch the Ginkgo trees in full glory.
I hope everyone is having a good holiday weekend. I think I hear some cold turkey sandwiches calling my name.
