This was the Shortoff Community – home of our Highlands friends Leroy and Martha Wilson and their four children, two boys and two girls. The last baby, a daughter, was named for my wife, Phyllis.
Leroy was the janitor at the Highlands School, and Martha was a wonderful cook who shared her mountain specialties with us. We visited back and forth and depended upon the Wilson’s to feed our dogs when we traveled.
Marty Wilson, the elder daughter, was the subject of my painting Sunday Morning.
