You think you're shocked . . . imagine me, a web developer now for close to 5 years and I'm just now finally getting the family's website done? You'd think I was some kind of slacker or something. Which I may be . . . who knows, you'll have to read the 'about the Friar' page to find out more specifics about me. This site has more to do with my family than just me so I won't spend much time going on about that.
So who are we? Well that's a good question. Turnmire is a German name, as with most surnames it has been changed through the years but it is often accepted that the original name was close to Duer'myer. This particular group of Turnmire's is in East Tennessee; though many live throughout the country in various pockets of North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Minnisota, etc. It's an interesting history that I know little about. Most of what I know I learned from countless hours of listening to my Grandmother tell stories of her youth, books that were written, and people she knew. Mamaw has since passed away and I regret that I didn't have a tape recorder or something to capture all of her stories. Guess I'll have to catch up with her some day in heaven.
I blog a good bit, the wife keeps up with things on Social networking sites like Facebook and the like. I work a 40 hour a week job and run a business, my wife watches kids at the church and has her own web business as well. With all of this going on we still find time for our two beautiful & witty daughters. For the most part they'll be referred to as Littlefoot and Squeker; they mean so much to us and we love them to peices. But back to the site, you'll find artciles or blog posts that I've written, some art work, info about our family, links to videos and tunes that we like, and a section for our LifeGroup. If you happen to have any questions or comments please feel free to share via our Contact page, we'd love to hear from you.
Enjoy the site!
