The entire ride would take eleven minutes. That was what the boy had promised us, the boy who never showed. But at the peak of our despondency we saw it: the lift, rising like a mirage out of the timber woods, its four dark cables striping the red sunset. Chairs were floating up the mountainside, forty feet above our heads. Empty chairs, upholstered in ice, swaying lightly in the wind. Sailing beside them, just as swiftly and serenely, a hundred chairs came down the mountain. As if a mirror were malfunctioning, each chair separating from a buckle-bright double. if we wanted to take the lift we’d have to do it alone. “I bet his real name is Burt,” Clara said angrily. Well, he had certainly seemed European, when we met him coming down the mountain road on horseback, one week ago this night. Eugene de La Rochefoucauld had proffered a nasally invitation: would we be his guests next Saturday night, at the gala opening of the Evergreen Lodge. We’d ride the new chairlift with him to the top of the mountain, and be among the first visitors to the marvellous new ski resort. “No less would be acceptable,” he’d said, smiling, “for a man of my stature. ” (Eugene was five feet four. ) The party was to be held seven thousand feet above Lucerne, Oregon, the.

But the stubborn creative streak that has long run in this quiet, secluded town didn’t die with Georgia’s most famous folk artist.

In addition to an ambitious... In that spirit, we provide a six-stop “Finsterville” tour of places filled with art (folk and other) and funk (antiques and other) that visitors can explore on a day trip. First they enter a major new building, the Paradise Garden Visitor Center, which was dedicated in late 2013 and includes permanent and changing exhibits, a video room and gift shop.
) and some delighted squeals later, my group of friends and I sat in complete and utter shock as the credits rolled across the screen. Four minutes and a list of people behind the movie later, our group broke into a nonstop chatter, ranging in topics from Bruce Banner/Hulk and his love interest in Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff (or is it vice versa. ) to how just about every person in the theater gasped in shock at Quicksilver’s courageous (and bullet-riddled) death. You knew the movie was going to be great when the opening scene involved a quip from Captain America/Steve Rogers, warning Iron Man/Tony Stark about his colorful “language. Fast-forward just a smidge to the end of the movie, when the Avengers battle for the fate of the world against the experiment-turned-wrong Ultron. It was a fight that could have ended human existence as they knew it, and metal could have inhabited all the Earth. But, thanks to a few fists flying, some quick thinking on the Avengers' part, a getaway vehicle, bullets soaring through the air and a ticking clock, the world was saved from Ultron’s plan.
