Bear Hug

Bear Hug - Kids

“My father took this of me in 1968 in the parking lot of Lollipop Farm, a petting zoo in Henrietta, NY.  Apparently, they just had a grizzly bear head lying around for kids to play with.  I probably had bear brains in my hair when I too, that thing off.”

“It was my last week of wrestling that I would have the varsity uniform, so I wanted to get some action shots and my mom was the only person around to capture the action.”

Clown Life

Clown Life - Misc

My dad worked as a manager for Jack & The Box. I do not know why my parents decided to take this a step further and both dress as Jack & The Box clowns. Maybe it was Halloween, maybe it was a thing to do, maybe one too many beers that day. I just remember feeling SOOO proud of them and you can see it on my face!

“Our mom’s first marriage didn’t end well so we have been told that my grandmother altered the wedding photo shortly after the dissolution. This is a good example of our families no-nonsense approach when encountering difficulties in life. Cut it out and move on.”

Tale Of Two Sisters

Tale Of Two Sisters - Misc

Rachel

“Here I am cheerly coloring alongside my older sister while she encouraged me, “You’re doing really good!” She suggested mom take a picture but the moment we held up our pages for the camera she whispered to me, “Yours is terrible!” The rest of the story is written across my face.”

Nichol

“I am the oldest of four, with my little sister here, being the youngest. Until she showed up I was the queen of everything. Needless to say, I was a little bit jealous. One day, we were coloring together and she as try I got to color like me. She was two or three. I was about seven. I was pretty proud of my newly honed artistic skills and  wasn’t prepared to let her take this away from me. So I encouraged her and to,d her what a good job she as doing and that her picture was really pretty. Every time I’d use a crayon, she’d wait until I was finished and then use it and try to do what I was doing. My mother, clearly touched by the love and sisterly affection shown between us, wanted to see a picture to preserve the moment forever. She asked us to hold up our pictures. I asked my mom to wait a minute and whispered in my impressionable little sisters ear, “yours is a scribbled mess” the I smiled for the camera and my mom snapped. Capturing the moment I popped my sisters balloon and let her have it. Am I proud? No. Is it funny? Yes!!! Every time I see this pictures I cry with laughter. My mom didn’t knickname me Lucy (after the Peanuts character) for no reason.  I showed this picture to my husband when we first started dating and was howling with laughter at the time. He was appalled, but he still married me. Ten years later, there are times he remembers this picture and wonders why he didn’t heed this warning. The way I look at it, I saved her from a lifetime of misplaced confidence. She was clearly not as good as me, and she could have ended up like those people who’ve ended up in X-factor because they’ve had encouragement when they should have been told to stop. Thank goodness my little sister had me.”
