Mr. Gillam Says"Time to Set The Net"

My friend Penny is full of stories, as is most anyone from Bertie County! Her dad would wake the children every morning and tell them it was time to set the net. Groggy from rest, they would do as he said, and always thankful for the beauty of the new day.


  1. This painting brought tears to my eyes. I love it. Looking at your paintings is like being in the land of beauty. They evoke so many fond and wonderful memories for me, a true and steadfast friend.

  2. This is so good and even more meaningful with the story of Penny's family..

  3. I remember well! Betsy would have a big breakfast ready when we finished. What wonderful memories. Gillam
