When our family lived on Satulah Mountain in Highlands in the early 1970’s, we always looked forward to the summer return of our friends Stella and Tatum Eskrigge from New Orleans. World’s End, their English country manor stone home overlooking Blue Valley was a special place. But it was no more special than the Eskrigges and their family and relatives whose adventures and conversation enlivened each summer season.
In 1978, Phyllis and I returned to Highlands to express our grief that Tatum had fallen causing his sudden death at World’s End. A basket of apples picked from trees on the property sat in the kitchen window. It seemed to add cheer to the sad situation and to harken back to previous times when the Eskrigges had shared with us some of the same small, tasty apples from their age-old orchard.
