Family & Island Notes

Family and friends are coming to the island later on today. My brother will be here. And so will Clay & Julie (Clay is one of the potters who displays his work at Village Craftsmen). We're planning a dinner for this evening, and Amy, David, & Lachlan will be joining us.

Tomorrow is Lachlan's fourth birthday (and my sixty-fourth), and we'll be enjoying brunch at one of the local restaurants.

At 8 o'clock tomorrow evening a group of talented island women will be presenting their second annual "Ocracoke Women's Opry." If you're on the island be sure to make plans to attend. Tickets (sold at the door) are $10.00. My advice: be there early; they might very well sell out.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is Lou Ann's account of installing an old-fashioned pitcher pump. You can read it here.

    Happy Birthday Philip, you seem to be getting better, not older.

    Philip,

    Happy Birthday to you and Lachlan.
    We're celebrating our daughter's 15th birthday today.
    We missed seeing you at the Craftsmen in June.

    Philip, missed you during my May visit 'cause you were "off duty" that week according to Dallie. Hope you are enjoying your freedom. And hope you both have Happy Birthdays. I'm only five months behind. You, not Lachlan! Bill in Winston-Salem

    Philip,

    A very Happy, happy Birthday and to Lachlan also. Enjoy your brunch and I hope it's at Flying Melon. :-) We just love Michael's
    cooking.

    We did speak with both you and Lachlan in June when we passed you in the lane. Think you were repotting. Lachlan is a gorgeous child.

    Have a great day !!!

    A very happy birthday to you and to little Lachlan. He is a very lucky guy to be sharing his birthday with his grandpa.
