HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO????????????????? Jimmy and Sam When I was about 17 months old, my half-sister Marie had her first baby boy. They named him James Thomas Timms. He was destined to be known as Jimmy or "Red" throughout his life. The first picture I ever remember seeing of the two of us together was one taken on the hood of a car in a cotton field circa 1959-60. I'm no more than two in the picture and he's sitting between my legs and I'm holding him. I was an olnly child and we spent a lot of time together growing up. There was just something about him that made me love him as a brother. In later years I came to call him the brother I never had. He was the man I loved most in the world. When I was eleven, I met the other kid who would become my best friend. His name was Samuel Scott Cain (Sam) and we seemed to click somehow. Even though we were very close in age, it was as though he saw me almost as a father figure, or at least a "big brother". He had two older biological brothers but was never close to them. Sam was "bi". In our early teens, Jimmy, Sam and I made an odd trio when we went to a public swimming pool together. Jimmy, though the youngest of us, was the most macho I guess. He had red hair all over his body almost as thick as fur. I had some hair on my chest and belly but none on my legs. Sam was a hairless wonder. The three of us had some good times as teens and into our twenties. We used to speculate on being 70 years old together, wondering whether we would be wealthy, have big families, etc. I'm certain I must have had some traits or quirks they found irritating, though I have no memory of ever hearing them mentioned. Jimmy and Sam both had their own little quirks I found annoying, but I always overlooked them. I never remember even one word of anger between either Jimmy and I or Sam and I. At times Jimmy and Sam didn't gee-haw very well helloooo agaain The Kudzu Training Program
