Double Dutch - Behind The Awkwardness

Double Dutch

“On the eve before my grandparents 60th anniversary party this photo was passed around. In 1991 for their anniversary they went to Holland. There is so much going on in the picture that every time you look at it you see something new – and horribly awkward. Don’t miss out on the painted wooded shoes, the tangle of yarn and that white hat.”

“We didn’t celebrate Halloween at our house. We begged to go trick-or-treating, so this was the compromise. Dad went with us door to door as the Prophet of Doom.”

Doorjammed - Behind The Awkwardness

Doorjammed

“We were all watching my youngest daughter play on her slip & slide.  When she was finished, I sent her inside (I thought) and I drained the slide.  I turned around to see this.  My favorite part is that with one hand she’s knocking on the wooden door and with the other, she’s trying to reach the handle of the storm door!”

My Favorite Martian

“Nothing says happy holidays more than your orange father sitting on the toilet with a pair of boppers on his head. Spain, 1990. Bare in mind this was before digital cameras, so some poor soul down at the chemist has to develop and print this!”

Sunny D - Babies

Sunny D

“In the 20th Century, babies were kept in cages outside windows, so they could get sunlight and air to get Vitamin D for good health. Originating in America, it was also said that these too provided more room for families who had little space in their city homes & somewhere for the child to play with toys.”

Civil Bore - Behind The Awkwardness

Civil Bore

“This is a photo of myself from 1995. That year, we took a family trip to the Civil War reenactment in Gettysburg, PA. This man is General Grant. My father is behind the camera saying, “We’re having fun!” It was probably about 102 degrees out that day and no, I was not having fun.”
