I found this set of slides on ebay. And thought. mmm, there is more to this story than just people posing and family adventures. But what could it be? And then it hit me. Oh! That’s The Thompson’s, I know them. Tammy and Tim Thompson. They live in Thompsonville Michigan.
Right there at the top of the mitten on the pinky side. See Tim wanted a new boat and well. Tammy was not into it. She wanted a new car, but Tim and the kids, Tommy, and Tracy, wanted a boat. So Mom had to go along with it.
This was back in the early 60’s so dad was the working stiff and mom just kinda went along, or at least she just wanted to look that way, see Tammy really wanted a boat, but had to play it so Tim thought he was in control. And thats the genus of Tammy.
Oh, this is all as I recall it. Tim worked hard and just wanted to go out with the neighbors, Tilly and Tad Thomas. See, maybe you are seeing a trend here. yes, the boat was a sign. That the Thompson’s and the Thomas’s, had some boating in there future.
As it so happens, see Tammy and Tad, hooked up one night after a drunk game of Bridge. It made for an awkward neighborhood thing after that. but they all got over it when Tim, turned out to be spending “to much time” with Tad as well. OHHHH! You didn’t see that coming did ya? Oh ya it was the talk of Thompsonville. It was known as the “Thompsonville Tryst”
Now, to be fare to Tammy, Tim, Tom, and Tilly, I do watch a lot of Investigation Discovery, so some of this could all be confused and mashed together. YOU CAN BUY THESE SLIDES RIGHT HERE ON EBAY. MAYBE YOU REMEMBER A DIFFERENT VERSION?
