A Special Gift - A special Day for those of us Above the Frost Line


Friend Peri Gordon-Flohr arrives on Cherry Mountain from far away, bringing a gift to our family.
The gift, a complete surprise, is my granddaughter and a great granddaughter, Sarah and Savannah. (Jeff's daughter and his granddaughter who born after his passing.)


Tim explains to Savannah how he is Savannah's Uncle Tim.

Sunrise on September 5, 2010
"I'll meet you at the bear cave."

"Where is the bear cave, Mama?"

Sarah and Savannah at the bear cave.
"Happy Birthday Uncle Tim."

September 5, 2010 - yes, a special day.

And now we're dashing to Asheville
to that famous book store -Malaoprops.


















Yes, that's us reflected in the hub cap of the dashing car.

A POETRY READING AT MALAPROPS BOOK STORE





















Lunch with family


and with friends.


Tim, out and about in Asheville.
Happy Birthday, Tim.



















The sun shines over Asheville. Lynn or Nancy might say "the son shines over Asheville."

















"ALL ABOARD FOR HOME!"
AND LIFE GOES ON ABOVE THE FROST LINE:

September 6. 2010













































Savannah places flowers on her grandfather's memorial place. Look at the sunlight or"sonlight" as Lynn or Nancy might say.

Nancy, you have a lovely family and how wonderful for you to have them visit. Looks like everyone was having a super time.

Love the red convertible. You were definitely riding in style.

Thanks Judy, It is good to hear from you. I am happy to know you saw this particular post. I thought of you and the loss of your own son so many times as I posted it.

I am proud of you and the development with your poetry. You did not get the private reply should have received. But I can tell you I see an accomplished, finished poem. It will be posted here very soon. Two other posts are being made now. So much is happening, every day. I can't catch up with all the time I lost last year, but I seem to be trying very hard to do just that. It is a good time to be living and growing.

Hey Nancy, I enjoyed Rosemary's, Betty's and Maren's poem. Also, it was nice to see your family and that lovely little granddaughter. She's a beautiful little thing. Not to mention that lovely rose that keeps on blooming. And of course your book which I'm so proud of for you. I really do like it and the cover is exceptional. All the best, Glenda Barrett
