The Spirit Of ’93 - Dad

The Spirit Of ’93

“My sister hired a photographer to take our family picture all dressed up in our red, white and blue in 1993.  Our Dad, pictured in the white shoes, was very patriotic and my sisters and I are as well.  It all made sense at the time but now we can laugh and call this picture one of our most awkward family photos!  Thank you to my sister  for always thinking up such wonderful memories for our family!!”

Red, White, And Groovy - Family Portrait

Red, White, And Groovy

“My Mom has always been a creative sewer. Back in the early 70’s she thought dressing the family alike in the cool, trendy flag cloth would be a great idea. Note the awesome brown polyester pants and cool white belts sported by the guys! And little me on my father’s knee! This picture has been out of the family’s eye for decades and I recently dug it out of somewhere.  I showed it to my Mom and her reaction was “Good lord, what was I thinking?” That got a huge chuckle from me!”

United We Segway

“About a decade ago, my dad had a phase of hyper-intense community involvement. He somehow came up with with the idea of putting a piano on a rented Segway and having me play patriotic tunes while riding in the local 4th of July parade to promote a local politicians election campaign. Predictably, the keyboard idea didn’t pan out, so he just had us bedazzle it in America and call it a day. This was that day.”

Glory - Behind The Awkwardness

Glory

“The year was 1976– the bicentennial of our country. Our Father wanted to celebrate. So he had my sister and I dress up as if we were Civil War soldiers. We proudly (yet embarrassingly) marched around the block where we lived. But that wasn’t enough.. oh no.. my father had us march around Ben Franklin (the store) and other shops in the plaza like TG&Y and Publix. Looking back 38 years later, I realize its nice to share memories like this one so the world can see just how much we were willing to do for our country!”
