Merry Christmas to old site members from a relatively
new one. I enjoy visiting Tim Barker's blog site;curr-
ently,there is a lovely photo on it of him enjoying Christmas eve dinner with his children. Judging from
his blog entries,he has quite a loving and committed
relationship with them. Given that his own childhood
may not have been perfect,(whose is!) due to his parents' contentious relationship-credit is due him for his obvious devotion as a dad. Also, glad to see
he maintained a relationship with his own dad,who
always seemed to get the shift where publicity was
concerned. To end this long-winded entry, I wonder if
he is a grandfather yet and whether his mother had
the chance to know her older grandchildren at all
prior to her death?
Elaine, as far as I know, Tim is not a grandfather, and I might be mistaken, but I think Susan knew only two of her grandchildren - Tim's daughter, Nadia, and Greg's son, Chris.
Thank you so much Tim for posting the latest three pictures on your site with your family. It is a pleasure to see them and hope you all had a great Christmas.
WISHING YOU ALL THE HAPPIEST OF NEW YEARS.
Thanks Ginger for answering my question; I read some-
where that Susan would have liked to have had a daughter at some point. I'm guessing that she was happy when Tim had a girl. Also,on a different subject,do you know whether Tim is writing a book
since he seems to hint at it in his bog? Thanks!
Elaine, I don't know if Tim is writing a book,but the whole idea is very intriguing.
What is Tim Barker's site called?
Howard-Tim Barker's blog site is .........planettrout.
wordpress.com. His avocation is fishing-fly fishing to
be exact. It is very well written.lots of family photos, and of course,it does mention Susan. Enjoyable
on several levels. I certainly hope he doesn't mind
me sharing this info-his site was actually given on
Ginger's old site.

Thanks - you guys!!!
Ginger is correct, my Mom only knew Nadia and Chris. She passed away before her other grandchildren were born. None of my kids have made me a grandpop - yet..although rumor has it that Nadia may be working on it soon...
Happy New Year and our best to y'all!!!

Happy New Year,Tim. Perhaps you'll be a granddad in
2010:it's the best......all the fun and none of the
responsibility! I speak as the grandmother of four.
I hope your mother enjoyed her time as one-even briefly.
