visiting uncle pat

This is the brick wall at my father's brother Patillo Ainsworth Finlayson's old house on 880 Pinewood Drive in Macon, GA. Uncle Pat sold the house a few years ago. It felt strange going through the empty house, boxing up his belongs for his move to Columbia, South Carolina. Every time I look at that brick wall surrounding Pat's carport, I think of this photo, and I think of how I too used to climb it during family trips to Macon. The above photo is of Brooky, Jennie, and Irene. I am a year younger than Irene, so I was probably too little to climb up let alone balance atop that wall. This is a great photo of my older siblings.

The photo below is a picture taken years later from across the street (Pinewood). That looks like Irene and I guess that's me walking away from the camera. I see my Aunt Jennie Llew Guyton's stationwagon parked in the drive. So I am sure Pat's little house was full of Finlaysons - H.W. Finlayson family, Rutha Dyal, Murdock Finlayson, Florrence Finlayson, Jennie Llew and of course Pat. I can assure you that no one had a bed to themselves during that visit!
