Sonny’s Share

“It was the summer of ‘68 or ‘69 and my mom (holding her cousin) was in Las Vegas with her Aunt and Uncle to babysit their kids while they went to see Sonny and Cher in concert. Sonny and Cher stayed at the same hotel as them (Sahara) and were casually lounging by the pool one afternoon. Sonny obliged for a photo op with my mom and her cousin.”

Playing Possum

“That’s my grandfather (Pappy) kneeling, my sister in his lap, and my cousin standing. I believe it was my uncle’s possum – he was known for taking in and rehabbing animals in a spare bathroom. This was taken in 1969 in Grand Junction, Tennessee.”
