Youth Football





















This is a mere sample of the photos and newspaper clippings that my dad kept.  He was an assistant coach for the years I played youth football.  My brother Miles played on one of the teams.  There were also cousins and step-siblings who either played or were cheerleaders at different times.  I was amazed and moved by the sheer volume of items my dad saved for me. The handwriting on some of the items above is his.  I remember him telling me that coaching those pee wee football teams (and baseball teams) was a wonderful time in his life.  He was there for everything, and the memories I have are happy ones.  In time, in this particular post, I will add many more scans of these football days.  When there are updates, I will feature them in the right sidebar.

Photo Time

Wish I knew more about these pictures.  I see Uncle Watty (Watt Espy).  I guess that it's 1937 (he was born in '33), and that this likely a preschool or kindergarten class.  I can't exactly recognize the buildings or area, but it resembles what the Headland, AL town square might have looked like then.

Mystery Lady

This was one of Uncle Watty's photos.  There was no information on the back.  Could it be a Carroll?

Secretary Desk




The secretary belonged to Aunt Frances.  There is a photo of her and Uncle Sid at it, probably in the late '30's or very early '40's, in Newark, NJ.  - Beverly Frances Espy Dayries

Heads Carolina, Tails California




Heads Carolina, tails California 
Somewhere greener, somewhere warmer 
Up in the mountains, down by the ocean 
Where don't matter, long as we're goin'
