An Easter Arrest

An Easter Arrest - Easter

“This was taken Easter morning. I am the second from the left, and had just been bailed out of jail by my parents.  I had spent the night in jail in Ferguson, Missouri for taking a case of beer out of an open garage.”

Ready For Them To Leave

Ready For Them To Leave - Grandpa

“I found this while going through family photos the other night. I asked my Mom and Aunt,”Who’s the old shirtless guy that we seem to LOVE so much?” “Oh! that’s your Great-Grandpa Floyd.”

I can only imagine the mood when this photo was taken: “OK kids! Gather ’round Grandpa! Were going to capture the bliss of this moment and the FUN he is having before we leave!”

Photoshop In The 60′s

Photoshop In The 60′s - Family Portrait

“My grandparents decided to have a family photo done many years ago when my aunt was out of town. So, 5 of the 6 children were present for the photo.  They decided to later add a photo (a bad photo) of my aunt to perfect the picture and complete the family photo.  Honestly, you can barely tell it was even altered.”

The Chocolate Mystery

The Chocolate Mystery - Kids

“Discovered this one while digitizing my grandparents slides. Must have been around the late 1960s. We are not certain about what happened prior to this photo being taken. Our hypothesis: I (the girl) stole and ate the boy’s (my brother’s) chocolate and got into trouble for doing so. Result: Girl sad, boy sad. We’ll never find out but this is just epic. It makes me laugh every time I look at it.”

The Wedding Rumble

The Wedding Rumble - Photos

“Fight that broke out at my great-uncle’s wedding, 1968. I don’t remember all the details, but I think my great-uncle told me that some guys who somehow knew the bride showed up without being invited. Eventually, when the band took a break, they sat down in the band’s seats and started messing around with their instruments. Someone went up to confront them, then someone pulled someone off the stage and all hell broke loose. Maybe it was a bad omen, as the marriage didn’t last. But what cracks me up is that the official wedding photographer saw the fight and took the picture.”
