Up On A Roof - Pets

“This was taken in 1979 in a Texas beach town. The two on the far right are my parents. Check out my dad’s peach leisure suit! They were visiting the family also pictured here, and took this photo after church with a camera on a tripod. The family dog had access to the roof from an exterior staircase located in the backyard. This dog regularly ventured to the front of the house on the roof to check out what he couldn’t see from the back. To this family, it was a normal, daily occurance.”

    I love the fact that the young man on the right in the short-sleeve jacket is wearing a long-sleeve shirt underneath it.

    Is it Brownsville? It looks like most of my family’s pics from the late 70′s. Heck that looks like it could be my childhood home!

    To-To was glad to be back in Kansas, but couldn’t shake the death of the Wicked Witch of the East.

    Here is the “story” on this photo:

    If Benji had bathed and brushed his hair, maybe he would have been included with the rest of the family. He’s too scraggly to fit into this photo of perfect suits, dresses, and hair. Poor Benji.

    I’m guessing the dog on the roof won in the one-upping department, after this shot!

    It doesn’t appear that the people in the photo even know the dog is on the roof behind them! Hysterical!

    Nothing says 1970s like all the polyester suits and dresses from the JC Penney’s catalog. Watch out for static electricity! The young lady on the right is pretty cute.

    It must have been raining cats and dogs!

    I miss leisure suits!

    OK, who’s holding the cursed tiki idol?
