And a few other pics for the second ATOP gallery.
I was talking with my friend today and said I don’t think I use the word atop in my everyday vocabulary. But I seem to have a few photos from the archives that illustrate it.

Dear Anna, May all your wishes come true.
Love, FF Ruthie
Granddaughter Anna makes a wish as she blows out the candles on the cupcakes at the Surprise Party with her friends and family at the Mellow Mushroom.
And at home contemplating a second wish with the family as cousin Charlie looks on.
A wife, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter.
A teacher, a neighbor, a knitter.
A colleague. A friend.
I took this photo of Nora in my living room at the Greenfield Holiday Party years ago.
Her radiant smile spoke of her generous heart, her loving spirit, her sense of humor, her easy laughter. She loved her family with her all.
Nora was a loyal blog follower since the beginning of the blog 7 years ago and wrote emails in response to photos she especially liked.
Alaska. Baked Orechiette. The family.
She always had a positive word and expressed gratitude for so much.
This morning. fellow Greenfielders and all those who loved her, gathered together to celebrate her life at a lovely Mass of Christian Burial.
She will be missed.
We will remember.

There’ll be two winters in the year.”
