The old apple tree and the chimney of the homeplace where my great
grandparents, Greene & Etta Michael, lived.

Grandpa Michael built this chimney himself. It's all that remains of the homestead.

Grandpa's barn--the view one would see if standing on the porch of the
old house. The chimney faces the barn.

What beautiful photographs, Tanya. How I wish I could have been there. Thanks for passing down so much pride for ones family to all of your children.

I love you.

Wow. Seeing those pictures of the chimney and the tree really brought back memories of the AT. Thanks for bringing a little Appalachia to Bulgaria. I miss it...
