(Editor’s note: The full photo at the top of the page is the store of which Bee / Momma / Grandma speaks. You can see the house just to the right of the store, and if you look really closely, you can see Bee / Momma / Grandma! We posted these pictures before, back in March 2013, at which time Bob / Daddy / Granddaddy’s cousin Alva Caroline suggested that they might have been taken in 1997, at the time of Floy’s funeral.

Currently this is the only photo of the store we have in our collection. Do any of you have any photos of the store when it was in use?)

(Editor’s note: The last time we posted these photos, we determined that these pictures were probably taken in 1997, when Bee / Momma / Grandma and Bob / Daddy / Granddaddy would have made a trip to South Carolina for the funeral of Bee / Momma / Grandma’s sister, Floy Garris.

The very top photo is of the store and post office that Bee / Momma / Grandma talks about in today’s story, and the second photo is of the house where Bee / Momma / Grandma lived next door to the store. If you click on the picture of the store, to enlarge, you can see Bee / Momma / Grandma.)

(Editor’s note: You can take the girls out of the swamp, but you can’t take the swamp out of the girls! These photos are from a trip Bee / Momma / Grandma took with her sister Floy to Cypress Gardens in Charleston when they were much older than back when they were killing snakes in the Round O yard! The first photo reads “Cypress Gardens, Charleston, S.C.”; the second, “Floy in boat at Cypress Gardens, Charleston, S.C.”; and the fourth, “Bob at Cypress Gardens Charleston, S.C.”)

(Editor’s note: These are more photos from Bee / Momma / Grandma’s trip to Cypress Gardens, just outside Charleston, S.C., with her sister Floy and Bob / Daddy / Granddaddy. The back of the first photo reads “Cyprus Gardens,” and the second reads “Floy at Cyprus Gardens.”)

(Editor’s note: If you click on the top photo with the porches, to enlarge, you can see Bee/Momma/Grandma! Based on where this photo was located in her albums, I think it may have been taken either when she and Bob/Daddy/Granddaddy went down for Howard’s funeral, or sometime after that to visit Floy. Anyone else have a guess on the year?)

Based on where this photo was located in her albums, I think it may have been taken either when she and Bob/Daddy/Granddaddy went down for Howard’s funeral, or sometime after that to visit Floy.

(Editor’s note: The back of these photos say they are from an Alcatel open house in 1996. Were these annual events, and Grandma/Momma/Bee and Granddaddy/Daddy/Bob often go to Raleigh for them?

Also, is that a sign-language interpreter up on the stage?)

Watermelon

In 1980s & 1990s, 2000 & Beyond, Pets on May 4, 2010 at 6:15 am

(Editor’s note: Dasher the dog liked to eat watermelon.

According to Aunt Julie/Julie, “Dasher would get small tidbits from our kids when we would eat out on the deck. He liked samples of cheese, watermelon and small bites of a hamburger or hotdog. He refused to eat green beans and broccoli!”

And, as we all know, “He loved to chase crabs and seagulls.”

The photo of this particular watermelon is from St. Matthews in August 2009. Julia Helen and Aunt Julia had it waiting on their kitchen counter for my dad and me when we paid them a visit.)
