We know we should not favor any particular guests, but we do. These two gracious Southern ladies graced our mountain last fall. Mrs. Marion Rollins (left) and her life-long friend, Mrs. Robbie Sessions, from Enterprise, Alabama have been friends since the age of three. They still cherish a picture of Ms. Robbie at age 3 standing beside a stroller the day Ms. Marion was born.

This November, each of these girls will celebrate birthdays -- age 94 and 97. As these enchanting ladies were having their pictures made, I commented to Ms. Robbie that I would like for her to visit us on her 100th birthday and have her picture made in the BIG chair again. She remarked, with a twinkle in her eye, "Oh, that's a great idea. I always like having something to look forward to!" Our mountain seemed to lose some stardust when they left.
