Behind The Awkwardness

Slippery Slope

“Here I am 3 years old.  My parents thought it would be cute to take my picture.  Yes that is a fur coat, snow man with 2 pennies for eyes and Pee-Wee Herman waiting for me at the bottom of the slide.  I promise a  I’m half way normal woman now.”

Free Skate

“I thought it would be great to ring in the new year by volunteering & supporting the Albany Allstars Roller Derby (un-finished) calendar project back in 2011. I really did use this as an awkward (yet endearing, I hope!?) Seasons Greetings family card!”

Neighbors

“I am not certain how or why this picture took place since I was the youngest  (being held by the ninja). However, I have been told that the ninja was in fact our neighbor, what I question is why my sisters and I were such willing participants. Hey, mom and dad- why didn’t you tell us about “stranger danger?”

Just the Facts

“This is a photo of my sister (the murderer), my brother (the reporter), and my Dad (the victim). The way I’ve heard the story told, as I was still a few years from being born, they lived next to a reporter for the local news channel and one day, my dad decided it would be funny to stage this picture…complete with “blood stains” on his back. The back of the picture actually says, “Just the Facts, Ma’am, 8/01/75.”

Happy Boob Year!

“Me (small guy in the center) and my family at my Uncle Dale’s house for New Years. My dad (on the far left) thought they said “Happy Boob Year!” My mom tells me she never drank, ever. Right.”

Christmas Casual

“Just a couple of newlyweds enjoying their first Christmas together!! This was over 25 years ago, we would probably need a king size sheet today! LOL”

Nothing’s Permanent

“I was pushing my brother’s GI Joe jeep up the hill.  I was bent over, face down & pushing.  The jeep came out from under me & I smashed my face on the pavement.  To remedy the situation, my mom decided to give me a home perm.  Gotta’ love the busted up face with the 70’s wallpaper & home perm curlers.”
