The Premiere Of If I Had Wings To Fly

Kazoo films if I had wings to fly

The premiere of the movie we’re in-If I Had Wings To Fly-was a huge success.

Asheville NC

We couldn’t have asked for better weather.

Kazoo Films in Asheville

There were new friends…

Tim Ryan aka medicine man in the movie if i had wings to fly

and there were old friends.

Boots in asheville nc

Of course there were boots.

Pigs in asheville too

There was even a couple of pigs hanging out up the road.

If I Had Wings To Fly

Even though they only have a small part in the movie-these 2 pretty girls more than enjoyed themselves. ( I caught my whistling girl-well whistling)

The movie has old time music from beginning to end-but we had the treat of live music before the show provided by The Puddle Jumpers.

There was also some mighty fine flat footing along with the tunes. (Chatter and Chitter were too chicken to take part in it)

For all who asked: the dvds of the movie should be ready in the next 2 weeks or so. I’ll be sure to let you know all the details.

    I’m sure there’s people that reads this blog that are -like me- old enough to remember the Beatles song “Golden Slumbers” with Paul Mc Cartney and the first two lines of the song. It says, “Once there there was a way to get back homeward, once there was a way to get back home.” To me this is what Tipper’s blog does – if only sometimes in memories.
    I believe all of us have two homes. One is the here and now. The other only exhists in the memory as well as many the people we have known. These topics, the great people on this blog that share their memories, poems, stories, and folklore on this blog, through Tipper does just that – at least for me- a way to get back home and all those beautiful memories and people that were part of that “Home”.
    I know of a poem that speaks of memories using a metaphor that speaks of “The meadows of the mind where shadow-sheep ( or distant memories )graze slowly by”. There’s few days that I don’t get a thought like this when I read this blog. Someone tells of their Grand Pa, their Mother, Granny, brothers or whatever. It all provides another way to get back home.
    I feel that this movie Tipper and her girls are in is a sweet page taken from a kinder and gentler time. I can’t wait to see it. Don’t know much about the plot yet but I already know there’s pretty girls in it.
    Hope I didn’t ramble too much.

    I know you’re so proud of your
    beautiful girls, and getting to
    grow up with them is a rewarding
    thing. And you’ve kept them out
    of trouble, mostly. I remember
    last October while watching the
    movie, turning to see Chitter and
    Chatter just as their parts came
    on, and getting that satisfied
    smile from both of them. Its a
    very good movie and you all did
    well. Bring on the DVD’s!…Ken

    “Land of the Blue Sky”
    You sure did have a purty day! Sounds like the premiere went great…Wish we could have been there…but will catch it on DVD.
    The girls are so pretty…
    I would have loved to see them flat footin’…
    I have walked down that very street as has my other kinfolks..
    Back in the day it was a big deal to go to the big city of Asheville!
    My long ago deceased Pa, could tell some stories of flat footin’ in Asheville…The boys would slip out of the house, take their Dads mule and ride to Asheville. Tie it out, and ride it back in the wee hours, hopefully before their strict Dad got up…Remember they went to bed with the chickens and woke up before the chickens, to work on the farm…They got caught slippin’in one morning, walkin’ a “sideways” };op LOL Another story for another time….
    I’m sure you didn’t do no celebrating “sidewise” walking!
    Great post, Tipper
    I was born at St. Joseph’s so that’s for sure my hometown…LOL

    Wow! What a premiere showing!
    Like Eva Nell, wish I could have been there, too!
    With playing, singing, clogging…and whistling…skills, and, as Ed wrote, Chitter and Chatter’s “drop-dead gorgeous” looks, I’m sure someone will be knocking at your door to sign them up soon (and their beautiful mother, too!)
    Thanks for sharing with us. Best wishes to all of you.

    Yes, the premier was great fun. Seemed like all the folks there were happy and enjoying themselves and the movie.
    Tipper, you and the girls did a fine job of your parts. There was an overall sweet feeling about the movie. It had a peaceful feeling about it.
    The two guys who made the movie, Bruno and Harrison were sure happy with their new baby.
    The music and the love of music sure shinned through!
    Congratulations to all!

    Them girls ain’t pretty girls. They’re drop dead gorgeous young ladies.
    What was in the puddle that the jumpers couldn’t jump? They got it all over themselves! I’ll take my cornbread with a glass of buttermilk and some pintos, thanks! As for entertainment give me Pap and Paul and the girls(gorgeous young ladies)and their bassist anytime. And throw in a Guitar Man and a Mandolin Man just for good measure.
    I am holding my breath ’til “If I Had Wings To Fly” comes out. I’m starting to look a little blue aready.
