Houses that Larry Jr. and Larry Sr. have lived in

As some of you know, I've been sifting through my Dad's slides. (Who creates slides anymore??!!)

Click here for a really short slideshow of places we've lived in Colorado, Kentucky and South Carolina. These are the former abodes of Larry Timbs Jr. (yours truly) or Larry Timbs Sr. The brick ranch house (with the vermillion Ford Maverick in the driveway) was the first house I ever bought. Paid the lofty sum of $27K for it in Campbellsville, Ky. The brick home with all the pine trees in the front yard? It was a rental that served our purposes very well in the early 1970s in Columbia, S.C.

You'll also see a rare slide of my Mom at work in a pharmacy in Newport News, Virginia. Mom hardly ever worked outside the home, but she did help bring home the bread--for a few years--when we lived in Colorado, Virginia and Tennessee.

That's my sales clerk Mom, by the way, in the photo accompanying this blog post.

Memories of Granny Jenkins and her family

I keep plowing through my Dad's slides. He left me hundreds of them and I'm trying to preserve some (hopefully for a long, long time) on the Internet. Quite a task to go through all those slides (does anyone create slides anymore?!?) and digitize them and upload them to the Net.

Click here for a slideshow of my Granny Maude Jenkins (my Mom's Mom) and her family. Granny and company are choreographed to the music of singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett. Thank you, Jimmy, for your tunes. Bet Granny Jenkins (shown in photo accompanying this blog post) never, ever heard of the singer of "Margaritaville." But maybe she's listening to him now from Heaven.

I dedicate this slideshow (and coming slide presentations) to the memory of my parents--Lawrence C. Timbs and Dixie Nadine Jenkins Timbs.

I miss you, Mom and Dad!

Memories of my Mom and Dad

My Dad passed away in early 2012. But during his lifetime he took thousands of photos. He especially loved slides.

I've been working to turn some of his slides into a slideshow.

Turn up your sound and click here to enjoy the first of many (hopefully) such shows.
