    Gorgeous photo and congrats to Chef E – thanks for the shoutout Tipper. It’s nice to have friends give you a hug – even if it is virtual. I love the idea of the family reunion theme. As a member of DAR you would have thought that I might have thought about that but (duh …) didn’t hit me until now. Thanks for sharing.

    Tipper, I just read your piece about the Over the Mountain Men -fabulous! I’d never heard of them before. I almost feel sorry for the Brits, trying to run away – for shame! I guess a handful of “mongrels” trumps a regiment of hot-house lillies! Here’s to the memory of all our brave ancestors, may we make them proud! Happy Independence Day!

    I make sure to include the military service of all family members while doing my family tree. We should never forget any of them.

    Tipper: Prize or no prize, I enjoy your topics every day! Speaking of our friend, Ethelene Dyer Jones, brings back wonderful memories of her tremendous support when I was ‘maketing’ my book. Her review of “The Matheson Cove – In the Shadow of the Devil’s Post Office” was exactly the boost I needed to introduce my book to the good folks of North Georgia. My great-grandmother, Minnie Little, and our brave folks in the mountains were like ‘the tree standing by the water’ and they were NOT TO BE MOVED to Oklahoma on the Trail of Tears!
    Just this morning I received a phone call from a mother who had been told about my book. After a LONG conversation, I agreed to help her write her sad story. We will meet next week for the first time and have lunch! I am going to try to not cry!
    Thanks for your wonderful site!

    It’s always a pleasure to read your posts, Tipper. The truth is I’ve learned a lot from you. Now I can’t wait to read Etheline’s stories.

    I am just now becoming interested in Revolutionary War. It is so fascinating & I regret that during my school years I learned just what I had to & no more.
    Congrats Chef E

    Congratulations, Chef E!
    Tipper, I love the polka the girls are playing on your music player.
    I didn’t know one of them played the piano.
    The talent in your family just amazes me!

    Looking forward to Ethelene’s stories. I haven’t read Chains yet and summer is probably a good time to borrow it from the library. I want to check out Independent Dames for my granddaughters too.
