Friday, January 19, 2018 – When Roy and I decided to live in our motor home full time we knew we couldn’t keep all the photos and photo albums we had accumulated over 40 years. We scanned and saved hundreds of digital photos. Chip and his brother have most of the actual photos we had.
I was looking for a digital photo today that was in that group (the one of Julie below). I decided to post some of them on Facebook to share with our family and friends because that’s mostly who these photos are of. This one Julie Turner Riley and me from around 30 years ago. My mama and her mama, Pat Turner were friends when we all lived in New Orleans.
Here’s my friend September Davidson Hoeler who was my very close friend when we went to Lakeview Baptist Church together in our teens. This was one of us on one of our bus rides to either Ridgecrest or Glorietta for youth camp! You can tell from the photo we were silly girls back in 1971!! September will be in more photos of my years with Lakeview Baptist youth.
A lot of our blog followers are not on Facebook and the photos may be of interest to them. So from time to time I’ll post a blog with several of them and I’m hoping you will enjoy them. If you are in any of them and want to have the photo just right click on it and select Save Image As and save it on your computer.
The photo below was my mama and Mr. Vivian Traylor’s wedding ceremony. These two pastors were the only pastors I ever had, until last year. Mama wanted both of them to officiate at her wedding and they did! Rev. J. Richard Randels, our pastor at Lakeview Baptist Church in New Orleans, is the gentleman with greyer hair. Dr. Randy Davis is the young guy who was our pastor at Trinity Baptist Church here in Pumpkin Center (Hammond) Louisiana. Rev. Randels officiated at Roy and my wedding back in 1972!
I think I’ll put the photos into groups and include all photos that are in a group in one blog post. We’ll see how it all works out but it is important to me that the people in my life who are in a photo and would like to have the photo will be able to have it. I’ll figure it out as time goes on.
My grammar is not what it use to be so please excuse me when I end a sentence with “of”, use the wrong version of a word, etc. I enjoy writing here but being concerned about it being grammatically correct is frustrating to me now.
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
