I seriously began writing down many of the John Robert and Bobby Lyon stories when grandchildren started arriving. But I began telling them to my children, Bobby, Greer, and Andy over 25 years ago. The main characters, Bobby Lyon and John Robert, were the imaginary friends of Bobby. Soon Greer told me of Sally, Cappie (“Cathy”), and the twins, Tina and Sasha. In time, John Robert and Bobby Lyon evolved into cousins, raised on the family farm and the girls became Bobby Lyon’s sisters. By the time Andy came along the stories had seasoned and each character possessed his own individuality. This book is made up of a series of loosely-related short stories, which can stand alone or read as one to create a larger narrative. Grownups pass down stories of the family, the land, the community, and their faith. Four generations presently live on and work this land. Few people today believe a place exists like the farm Bobby Lyon, John Robert and their families live on; though it is not the ground, the terra firma, that is special, but the people who have chosen this small corner of the whole, big world as home I hope I have done the stories my family enjoyed justice.
