Tim and Patty (“Cookie”), thank you so much for thinking of us at this time of the year. But mostly, thanks for being part of our Backyard Growers Family!
Folks, I’m sharing this for a couple of reasons.
- All of Our Members are like family to me. Words cannot even begin to explain why.
- Timothy did something for me that I’ll never be able to re-pay him for.
At our Backyard Growers Shindig in August of 2016 he took some pictures of our little yellow dog who we lost a few weeks later. I didn’t even know that he photographed her. When he found out we lost her he sent me These Photos of Our Little Yellow Dog.
And for that I can’t thank him enough!
How Patty got the name “Cookie” at the Shindig.
We were doing introductions, kinda going around the room and I introduced Tim but couldn’t remember Patty’s name and she couldn’t tell me because she had a cookie in her mouth. She kinda pointed to her mouth and said; “Cookie”, so I said; “And Tim’s wife Cookie”. Everybody laughed but the name kind a stuck.
So low and behold I get a package in the mail at Christmas from “Patty Berrier” and it was a box of cookies! Thank you so much!
It’s the people that we have met on this insane journey that make all the difference in the world and they literally have and will forever have changed our lives and for that I am forever grateful.
To all of you that I’ve met, the many of you that I probably never will meet, to those that have been following my antics for years, Thank You!
You all mean more to me than you’ll ever know.
