Well, that's just great Wilma Flinstone. Glad to see you're being stone age people but don't feel like farting after eating beans roasting on a cave fire.

Bill: I went to Express Lube this morning to get my oil changed in my car, and I came across the July 18-25 issue of Weekend, and there it was, "Bill Glover" Cave Life in France -- Modern Day Flintstones! I was so intrigued and amazed to hear about your new life. I think it is wonderful. I found your webset and am planning on purchasing your book. I sure do envey you both. It sounds and looks like a dream. Take care. Sandi (Brewer) Liles

An excellent site, Aprille does a great job (Laura says she does most of the web stuff :-)) You guys are certainly living my dream and have done a great job showing everyone what your surroundings look like and bringing us all there with you. Hopefully one day Brian and I will be able to get the taste of the France I have always craved! I can't wait to finish reading the book and am glad to see you are working on a second one.

Your web site is great! I see your "cave" is a unique, quaint & cozy place, I know I'd love to visit. It looks amazing there. Enjoy! We'll enjoy your views through your site! Tonja, (Lori)

having known the area from family holidays spent in our own family cave in neighbouring Villavard over 30 years (my wife and I have now moved to the nearby village of Ternay, sadly no cave) I can smell, taste and feel the area when I read your column - which is no mean feat as I write from my surgery on a wet afternoon in pollution-filled London.My wife (Kiran) and I very much look forward to bumping into you & Aprille one day in the beautiful village of Lavardin or in the market in Montoire one Saturday.Sadly we do not get to this delightful region often enough.Best wishes, Jeremy & Kiran Sandford

I just returned from France a few weeks ago. I spent ten days total, a few days in Paris and the rest of the time in the Loire Valley. We took the train to Vendome where we rented a car and drove to the Chateau de Plessis-Fortia where we stayed for the rest of the week. Each day we got in the car and drove through these tiny quaint and charming villages to tour chateaux and see the countryside. I was completely enamored of France and the people. One evening we were returning from dinner in Lavardin when I noticed two copies of your book at the chateau. One was signed by you. I was flipping through the book when I saw a few paragraphs about the restaurant Le Caveau. We had been there that night and it was my most enjoyable evening in France. Nestor walked around the restaurant just like said in your book. That evening epitomized my time in France. I brought the book back to the U.S. to read it and you were able to help me understand my time in France and what i was feeling for the country and the remarkable people. Thanks for your book, Shelley

Cave Life in France! A delightful and informative book. Mr Glover tells his story with dry and subtle wit. A pleasure to read. Written by a man who loves fine cuisine. fine wines, and his many interesting and charming friends. A "must read."

Aprille and Bill,Bill and I saw the article in the Furman Magazine about your delightful cave home. I also read with interest Bill's book about your move to France and your life in the countryside there. What a great adventure! Stay well and write more. Bill and Kathy Stillerman

Bill, long time! We went skiing in Canada many years ago - I am the friend of Marge and Gerry's. Have heard about you and Aprille over the years. Life can be so invigorating when it is taken with a bit of risk. I moved back to Buffalo a year ago. My next goal is to walk the entire AT - I seem to remember hearing of a few of your hiking adventures (or were they misadventures). Although I probably will not get to meet you, Aprille, know that I wish I could some day. You never know. Great cave. Enjoy.Kathryn

I'm a friend of Sandy Wells,we work together at Sea Island in the retail dept., and Howard Browning,we were neighbors while our girls were growing up.Sandy and I were talking about France because she and her son, Nelson, are planning a trip for the last of Sept. and the first of Oct. and I aksed if they were going to try to see you and that is when she told me to look up your website. I'm glad I did because it was great to see what life is like in a cave. It sounds like you both are doing what you really like to do and that is great because most people don't get to do that or are not braveenough to try for their dreams. It's nice to see two people doing just that. Your website is great and I want to thank you for allowing me to intrude into your wonderful home and life in the cave. I hope Sandy and Nelson stop by to see you both. Take care and keep up with your messages you send to Howard.

Hi! What a wonderful storybook life you have created! I, too, am a Furman graduate (1993). I also love St. Simons Island. We vacation there twice a year. I also love France. My husband and I are revisiting Paris in February 2002. Want me to bring you some fried shrimp from the Crab Trap? We would love to know if you are available for lunch one day. I plan to start reading your stories regularly. Thanks for giving my office cube in Atlanta, GA a little taste of France!

My mom pointed out your article in the Furman alumni magazine to me as I was crawling out of bed this morning, and I immediately read it. This is rare for me, especially during summer vacation. I remembered driving through Lavarin last summer on my way back to Paris from Tours, and I recall seeing many caves along the road. I wondered who would ever want to live in a cave? A Furman student! It seems like a wonderful life.This fall will be my final semester at Furman, graduating with a degree in French and Political Science. I also hope to move to France, however I plan on doing it upon graduation. I'm thinking about living in Paris or Bretagne (Nantes). Any suggestions? Your website is very good, and seems like a great way to keep in touch with folks back home. Keep enjoying the great food, wine, and culture...and keep telling us about it!

I am a subscriber to your Tales from the Loir and can hardly wait to see what's next. When reading these I get such a yearning to see France.You are living the life I would love to live, however, it looks like St. Simons Island will be our retirement home...dull! dull!. My husband and I visited the Valley of the Loire this past May and loved it. We stayed in a chateau near Amboise and plan to go back next year. Perhaps we can look you up at that time.I haven't purchased your book as of yet, but plan to do so in the near future.Thank you again for your interesting tales. The best to you and Aprille.Bobbie Hathaway - Atlanta, Georiga

I just received the Summer issue of Furman's alumni magazine and saw your article. I moved to France after graduation from Furman in 1999 and couldn't help but notice your story - it's so inspiring! I am so jealous!

After reading about your "cave life" in the Charlotte Observer, we took a look-see. Even though I am VERY claustraphobic, it looks so romantic . . . of course, with three kids yelling at each other and three dogs barking, even sitting in a parked car sounds romantic.P.S.Your front entrance is enchanting!
