Birthdays in Timber Cove
When we returned from Green Valley in May, we stopped off to see Tanna
and Stephen in Timber Cove. Since it was the day before Amelia's
birthday (same day as Harry S. Truman's birthday), we were greeted by a
gaily decorated house.
Hailey also showed up, and we all (except me, it looks like) took a

On Saturday, Mark and Darla came down from Eugene. Here are the
"girls" on the
bridge on the Bear Creek Trail. A little later, we conned a passing
photograher into getting a shot of
