One of my favorite memories of Timmy Limmy happened when we were landscaping around our pool at the old house. Tim would shovel dirt into a wheel barrow & balance it across a 2x4 beam to get it across the unfinished concrete pool deck. My dad & I were happily swimming when one of the loads didn't quite make it across the beam. Imagine, in slow motion, a wheel barrow, full of dirt, tipping towards you, & then a dark cloud of mud enveloping you in the pool. I remember swimming with goggles (like it helped) to fish out BIG rocks from the bottom of the pool. It took a good amount of time to clean up that mess.
I loved watching Tim play video games. I liked to watch him play Zelda or Street Fighter, anything really. One day, right after Tim got home from Slovenia (where he served a church mission for two years) I stayed home from school because I was feeling under the weather. Tim & I played Mario Kart all day long. He taught me how to perform a shortcut on one of the levels (Wario Stadium). I remember when I finally, after many, many tries, got the trick, I was so pleased with myself. I enjoyed the time he spent with me.
