Hello to Our Friends

I hope this winter has not been too hard on you. We had an ice storm in East Tennessee last week but got through it without any real harm.

This is Jim writing… and I wanted you to check my blog today as I am writing a little about Dad and his poultry and egg business. I am showing some of the advertising  that Dad used such as this old ink blotter, etc.

Updates
Mary & Prince seem to be doing good. Prince is good company in her Knoxville apartment.

Jim had hip replacement surgery 4 weeks ago and is progressing normally with the help of physical therapy.

Dad’s home has been on the market for several months, but it appears we may be closing later this month.

As you would know our sadness lingers, as we think of Dad every day. He continues to remind us to smile and show kindness. We chuckle a little at times when we think of some of the funny things he said.

I hope you are recovering well from the hip surgery. Always nice to see the updates.

It's good to hear from you. I was just thinking about your family this weekend.

Glad to hear your surgery went well. Hope that you're back out fishing in no time!

Send Mary and Prince my love.

You know Jim, I could almost hear dad talking in this post...He was such a wonderful person and not many a day goes by that I don't think of him. I am gla to hear that you are doing ok after the surgery. Does Mary ever get on the computer and write ? I am glad that she has prince to keep her company...I know she must miss Dad so much...as we all do.

Enjoyed reading your posts this morning, Jim...we miss Dad too but have fond memories of him and always love reading his blog. Thanks for posting the pics from the White Produce collection. Do you have more items that you could post? Glad you are recovering well. Take care. Hello to Beverly & Mary.

My sister and I were out for a walk on Anna Maria Island and my heart skipped a beat when I passed a house with many bird houses and live egrets on the lawn. I thought I'd be sending DAD of photo if he were still with us. So many good memories of DAD and he really did inspire me to slow down, stop, look at the birds, flowers, sea and to listen to the wonderful sounds of nature. He is a treasure in my heart.

Dear Mary and Jim,

I still think about Dad often and am thankful that you all are keeping this blog going. It's hard for me to not smile when I think of Ray. I miss him and am so glad I got to meet and know this man. It's a blessing to have known somebody who had such a positive impact on so many lives. Please keep the blog updates coming. My wife read Dad The Tomato Man recently- she loved it and I wish she could have known Dad personally.

Love,
Michael and Joy

I´m sure it is going to be a great year. Economy will continue growing, best real estate agents predict the recovering of the market, most wars are over, i am sure it will be better than previous years.
