Rogers Ferry on the Chattahoochee River

 this is Rogers Ferry crossing over the Chattahoochee River, about 1890. They are probably coming from Atlanta's side to the Roswell side. On board with his two mules and wagon is William Cinatra "Buck" Jones (1850 - 1930).

Buck, a farmer, was a resident of the Cumming-Alpharetta (Milton), Georgia, area. He was married to Sarah Ann Elizabeth "Sallie" Brown (1848 - 1920). They were/are Anna's great great grandparents, on her mother's mother side.

No photo description available.

Chicken Charles Crews

 The late Charles "Chicken" Crews and George Wallace at a Bell Reunion. I think as a youngster Chicken boxed in the Golden Gloves at Larry Bell Park. Charles Ronald Crews died in 2012. He was a cancer victim.

Believe me, Chicken was no chicken.

 I think this may have been John Severen's last contribution to MAD comicbooks, but not the last contribution to EC comicbooks.  Probably written by editor Harvey Kurtzman

Sail Away


Anna Nichole Smith's Palace in Nassau


This is the late Anna Nichole Smith's estate in Nassau, in the Bahamas. I took these a short time after her death. The gates were closed to keep nosy people like me at bay (literally). But, as you can see, with lattice gates for protection nosy people like me find a way.
