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

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

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