The Retirement Gift

“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

“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!”

Taking The Plunge

“My brother is wearing my headband and we’re both eating Ring Pops. It looks like we’re dressed up for the Christmas Eve service. And Dad….? Dad passed away last Christmas, but his plunger will live on forever.”

Beak Envy

“This is a picture of me when I was in second grade we were putting on some sort of play for the parents. For some reason my teacher insisted that my beak looked a little inappropriate. I insisted that I be allowed to wear my beak and couldn’t think of anything that looked like it that would be deemed inappropriate.”
