We showed up around noon on the Thursday before Christmas Eve to pick up two smoked turkey breasts from Cavonna Holcomb. The moment we walked through the doorway of the smoke house, we knew something very special was taking place inside. Cavonna immediately began to talk about her operation.

Christmas afternoon found me at Traveler's Rest. We were in warm weather. The temperature was in the low 70's! We said that we could have taken the kayaks out but it was Christmas Day.
