I'm sorry for your loss.
But I'm also happy that you have such great memories of a wonderful woman
to comfort you.



Tim, I am traveling and just heard about Aunt Thales from my mother. Your tribute is fantastic.



The diaper becomes you! j/k

I love the photograph of your grandmother with her baby dolls. I had a grandmother who was similar and I simply adored her. Thank you so much for your beautiful stories, and the photographs.



Hi there from the Beautiful Africa carnival. i am busy looking for posts for the December edition - let me know if you could send us one another interesting post.
Enjoy the Sunday - lotsss of greetings from South Africa


The family photograph at the bottom of this post is highly unusual in that it is a complete record of the three generations of the extended Barker clan including spouses as we were in 1970, with the addition of three second cousins (erstwhile bloggers Tigerhawk, Charlottesvillain and BioTunes)thrown in for good measure. I believe I am wearing diapers in this picture, but at 2 years of age can be forgiven that dependancy.
