Bear ahead!





This is a road I walk regularly.  I drove very slowly and the bear just kept on eating.  Be stealthy is a good thing!  It stayed in that spot for a long time.

Bear on Garden Tour


Do you you think I look perty?  I thought others would be here for the tour?

We named this bear Sylvia, after a friend who enjoys gardening.

I guess I will just come back for my mail later.  They're never on time.

Grouping of Family Photos

Starting upper-left and going clockwise:  Mark Carroll Espy (my dad); my dad and his sisters; my dad and his horse; and my dad's grandparents' home.

The studio portrait of my dad looks so much like his brother, Watty.

This Better Be Good!



Allen, it sure looks like a dog to me.  This better be good 'cause we have elephants and monkeys in Thailand.





Wow!  Looks like a bear!














In the Great Smoky Mountains National Park they have Cades Cove.  I may have to name this area in Asheville, Kade's Cove.

Thanks for the memories, Burt.




Smokey and the Bandit is my first memory of Burt Reynolds.  Mother always liked to share that at the movie, it was so crowded, we all had to sit in separate spots. I was only 6 or 7, and likely sitting with my oldest sibling, Leslie. Mother was a few rows behind, keeping an eye on us.  In one scene, Buford T. Justice says, "I am going to barbecue your ass."  Mother said just as that line finished, I said out loud, "Mama, did you hear that?!?"  She said everybody laughed, and she wanted to hide under the seat.

Hiking Surprises














White Squirrel & Black Bear
Asheville, NC

On the drive home I took a little detour through a neighborhood, and voilà.  What's surprising is that it appears to be a very pregnant female.
