This is my grandfather’s store which was mentioned before. https://crookedcreek.live/2016/12/10/minnie-ii/.
I remember it as a hub of the community of Gee, but when I look at these old photos I wonder if it was my imagination that it was a place filled with activity. It looks a bit desolate in the older pictures.
I remember it painted as the later picture with people on the front porch. I call still recall how “Pappy” would rush to that gas pump as soon as he heard a car drive up. Yes, and my grandmother was “Mammy.” Older cousins started those names for our grandparents and I wonder if they were pleased being called Mammy and Pappy. I know that I would not have been.
