The Wallet

Recently ran across this picture we took when we were moving Cousin Amy last year. There was a trunk of Memaw’s items that Amy had been keeping for years.

The End

I’ve been thinking lately about this site, and if it has filled the purpose I initially created it for.   I have enjoyed sharing my memories with my cousins,  and as well enjoyed hearing about their memories  of this house that had so many shared connected memories.  With the passing of Barbara last year, it seems there’s no direct family… (more…)

Poindexter Painting – circa 1968

Bradley in this photo from my Dad lends me to think this was the trip we took him and Brian back to California with us.  Circa 1980   October 2015 Update Recently while at Turner Manor I walked… (more…)

Sharing Pictures

In this undated photo, we see a moment where Memaw (ha Katie!) and Sharon are looking through photos.  What’s ironic is that the albums they are looking at are the ones these pictures came from.  That’s deep!
