The Roach Clip

The Roach Clip - Behind The Awkwardness

“I found this picture recently when I was cleaning out some old photo boxes. I think I was in 3rd or 4th grade, which would make it the early 1980s. My parents, obviously having no idea what roach clips were used for, not only let me buy it, but let me go to school with it pinned to my collar on picture day.”

The Retirement Gift

The Retirement Gift - Mom & Dad

“This photo is my mom, about 17 years ago, opening a large package containing a beautiful handmade quilt that the staff at her school gave her at her retirement party (she was school nurse for 27 years). Dad was holding the bottom edges of the bag it was packed in so she could remove the contents more easily.

I found the photo recently, took another look, and fell over laughing!!  We think Dad, who died in April 2011, would have gotten a big kick out of it, too.  (Mom said I could submit this; she has a great sense of humor.)”

The Summer Of ’69

The Summer Of ’69 - Behind The Awkwardness

“I was 9, my sister, 3. I had more hair than anyone knew what to do with. I decided that I wanted to look like a ‘movie star’ in our photo shoot, so my mom’s hairdresser gave it her best shot… mission accomplished??? My poor little sister was obviously terrified of that monstrosity on top of my head… but don’t worry, she turned out fine. She became a school counselor! Still my favorite sister pic of all time… how I miss 1969!”
