Linda's dad died several years ago. He was a super dad and super friend to both Linda and me. He was an agronomist with the US Dept of Ag. and with the UN in Switzerland. He was a leader in the "green revolution" in the '60's and '70's in Asia. He always loved to grow a garden. Linda early this year had our front yard landscaped with plants that reminded her of her dad. She chose the statue because it reminded her of his love of hiking. She tells me that her dad and yours are in a discussion....
