A Photo Finish

Now that I've looked over a couple hundred old photos I've inherited and sorted out the ones I want to keep I'm starting to label them. Grandpa in the cribThis has

brought me to the realization that if you don't share your knowledge (your information) then your knowledge and information is worthless to society.

 Less then a fourth of the photos I inherited had labels on them. It's a shame because if I knew what they were I'd know who to pass them on to or even if they important

This is what Active Rain is all about. Here we share knowledge and wisdom. Do you want to live on... be immortal? Post! 

We also come here for FUN!

Grandpa cutting it up

The picture of the baby in the crib is simply labeled "Daddy". Most of these pics were my moms so I have to assume the baby is my grandpa.

The other two pictures are from a "photo booth" are labeled "Abe & Ed New Years Eve, New York". Ed was my grandpa, the same person as the baby in the crib. Is it my imagination or does it look like those mustaches are falling off?

I'm thinking that the pictures may have been taken at the 1939 Worlds Fair. Did you know that the 1st photo booth was used at the 1889 World's Fair? Looking up the Photo Booth on Wikki was fun and I'd recommend you take a look for your self.

It's Missing Something Simple
My dad loved his cars. I always knew this but until today I didn't realize that his love of automobiles went back so far. I'm currently going through a big box of old photo's that was given to me a few years ago but never had time to look through… more
POP Goes the… Cake?
We have had some unusual Birthday Cakes in the Timm household, the most unusual being Tina's request for a "Litter-box Birthday Cake" (yes it looks just like a soiled litter-box and is served with a litter-box poop scoop). A new creation… more
Meet Victor Lee, Mr. Energy!
When Victor is around there is never a dull moment! He jumps out of planes, he's learning to fly the big ones (B52's), and much more. Victor and I are friends through Toastmasters 636 in Minot ND and we have extended our friendship through mutual… more

This photograph is approximately an 4" X 6" part of a canvas that is a about 18" by 24". The entire canvas, or more accurately the entire piece of glass, is a window on my GMC Yukon. While scraping the frost off of your… more

Time to Shovel
It's after Thanksgiving, now it's okay to snow. Snowfalls before Thanksgiving are just plain RUDE! That being said we have had several already this Fall and Halloween usually carries about a 50/50 chance of snow in any year in North Dakota. Those… more
About your old cell phone… Did You Know?
My old Galaxy S3 was no longer holding a charge long enough to be useful to me anymore. Those of you who know me know that I can't seem to throw anything away that I can re-purpose and I figured there has to be a use for a phone that they say is… more
Flood Recovery Takes Time, a LOT of Time.
