Wow!! The camera showed up in the shoppe yesterday and told me that Lexington Ave had been chosed by the NC Chapter of the American Planning Assoc as one of the top five Great Main Streets and did I want to make a comment!! "You bet I do! Let me find my lipstick!", I said.
But we always knew it was a Great Main Street didn't we? And we know why too. First of all it's all funky, locally owned, the mom and pop stores that make a place unique. Lexington is the kind of street I look for when I travel. I want to see what makes that city its own particular entity; the food, the clothes, the sound, the feeling. I won't find that in a fast food spot, or a big box store that looks just like the one on my town's fast food ally.
Its always so tricky to be on television. I get chatty and often silly but thankfully they cut that and included what I really wanted to say and I'm glad.
I've never heard my name pronounced like that! Ha! Its ok, really!!
