Living Room

Here is a nice picture of our living room in 1982.

Black and white T.V. over in the corner. (If I remember right, my parents did not get a color T.V. until I was married. Now that all of us are married and moved out they have a T.V. as big as the wall on the right.)

I can remember Dad saying we wasted to much time watching T.V. in the summer.

We woke up one morning and the T.V. wouldn't work.

I looked behind the T.V. and sure enough Dad had unplugged it.

T.V. in the 70's and 80's was only tolerable until lunch time with such great gems as the Price Is Right and The Bob Braun Show as the highlights of the morning shows. Then soap operas came on and you couldn't make us watch it.

I see the pinball machine off to the right. (I wish we still had that.)

I also noticed the Rubik's Cube and another game on the coffee table where you tried to match all the number on these little gear like things.

The yellow thing off to the right folded into a chair, out flat or wound up into a barrel shape. Winner got this seat for prime time T.V. watching.

I also noticed the pictures on the mantel.

The center is my freshman class picture but Mom has lovingly placed our favorite pictures of ourselves in front of them.

Brett in his football belt out fit, Chad being a clown and me as my alter ego.

Thanks Mom.

Mom and I in our going to town clothes.

This was our outfits for the bicentennial celebration in Trafalgar.

It was a fun day but I was made fun of for wearing nickers while riding the float with the baseball team. Jerks.

Hey don't baseball pants only go to around the knees?

All Wet

If you have watched the news lately you have seen my stomping grounds has made the headlines.

I am a Pastor of Cornerstone Church in Trafalgar, IN which flooded but not near as bad as Martinsville, Columbus and Franklin.

Here are some pictures of the chocolate river flowing in our basement.

The church is not located near any creeks or ponds. This is just an example of what 10 inches of field run off will do.
Hey we have a river!

We could always turn the nursery into a water park.

After the water left we had super slick mud every where.

My wife proves once again that she is a keeper by sitting in the keep pile.

We saved a few things and had to trash the rest.

We were very fortunate, pray for those less so.

Here is Dad eating a bowl of cereal.

Is that a see through linen shirt?

Down Home

This was a very old slide mounted on glass. It is a picture of my Dad's boyhood home.

Here are some other as well.

I remember staying in the house a few times.

I remember Dad showing me where he carved a picture of Beetle Baily in the door molding upstairs and also pointing out on the roof to where they slept in the summer.

All things he would never have let me do.

Sad that it is out of the family now.
