Brenda isn’t fazed a bit by her demanding new vocation. “I’ve always worked,” she explains. For 25 years, she was a schoolteacher, and then she owned and ran an antiques shop and the Hickory Ridge Lodge, a popular reception spot for weddings and more where she prepared the food. Since 1996, she’s operated The Cottle House Bed & Breakfast, where she serves breakfast on the porch each morning to her guests, who come from across the country and often linger at the table.
