FAMLY HISTORY

I FOUND TWO DISKS WITH AN AMAZING TREASURE ON THEM AND THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE WITH YOU

YEP OTHER PEOPLE THOUGHT MY MOM WAS VERY BEAUTIFUL



WHERE DID I GET MY LOVE OF CHICKENS? YEP RIGHT HERE



LOOKING DOWN AT THE BARN; EVEN IN THE WINTER IT MAKES MY HEART HURT FROM MY MEMORIES; SEE RIGHT BEHIND THE BARN? YEP THAT IS A TRAIN TRACK; TO THIS DAY THE SOUND OF A TRAIN BRINGS PEACE TO MY HEART.



GRANNY AND GRAND DAD BROWNING; MATEWAN WV



GRADUATION DAY FOR BABY IVAN; A MIRACLE BECAUSE HE WAS SHOT IN THE EYE WITH A 22 RIFLE SHELL WHICH HAD BEEN THROWN INTO THE FIRE BY ACCIDENT.



AGAIN VERY PRETTY



MY DAD COULD TELL YOU THE HISTORY OF THIS BUILDING IN KY...BUT I CAN'T; IT IS THE POST OFFICE IN MAJESTIC KY; I BELIEVE THIS IS WHERE MY DAD LIVED FOR A WHILE



UNCLE SONNY ? AND GRAND DAD BROWNING: STERN LOOKING WASN'T HE?



IS SHE NOT THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE WORLD? MY MOM



THIS IS GRANNY BROWNING; SHE COULD CHUNK A ROCK 30 FEET DOWN INTO A RIVER TO SCARE BOYS WHO SHOULD BE HOEING CORN...OR BREAK THE NECK OF TWO CHICKENS PLUCK THEM AND FRY THEM FOR BREAKFAST AND THEN GET 6 KIDS READY FOR CHURCH AND ACTUALLY GET THERE IN TIME (OR MAYBE THE PASTOR JUST WAITED FOR HER?)



THIS WAS THE BOOK ON WHICH MY GRANNY BROWNING BASED HER LIFE




IVAN SAMPY PAUL AND SONNY = TROUBLE WITH A CAPITOL T



THIS IS THE BARN THAT MY DADDY BUILT WHEN HE WAS A TEENAGER WITH HIS BROTHER!!

That is really wonderful.

I love looking at photos of people's lives. Probably one reason I post so many of my own, even though I seem to be different than others in that regard. LOL

Your mom WAS a beauty! And your family sounds like an adventurous and skillful group of people. I can tell from your words that home and family meant the world to you.

Precious. Thank you for sharing those!
