Thanks for smoothing things out

In the April 18 Xpress I wrote a letter lambasting whoever ordered the application of whatever was purposely splattered all up and down Cane Creek Road in Arden/Fletcher [“Who Put the Bumps in My Country Road”]. I said (and I do so love to quote myself), "Roads are supposed to be smooth, safe and even pretty."

I rode in the Asheville Ride for Kids charity motorcycle ride recently, which took us down Cane Creek Road. I'm very happy to say that the road is as smooth as a baby's bottom. (Not that I have, nor would I advocate, riding a motorcycle over a baby's bottom, or any vehicle over any part of a baby — that would be clearly wrong on so many levels. We all remember that horrifying scene from Mad Max. Terrible to even think about. But I digress).

What I mean to say is that the road is now as perfectly paved as any I've seen. I am thankful to whomever decided to repair this road, and saw that decision through to completion.
