The 80’s

Three Kates

“This is my friend Kate. I recovered this picture from helping her move a few years ago and with her permission am sending to you. 80’s Kate is fond of books, sitting and perms.”

Run To The Hills

“This picture was taken circa 1985. I grew up the only Chinese kid in a very small town. I went through a heavy metal phase after being introduced to Iron Maiden from the cool older kids on my block. In an attempt to fit in, I pierced my ear and got a mullet.”

Lipstuck

“Assuming this was Halloween 1984ish, or at least I hope so based on my brothers choice of headgear, my mom swears she was putting lipstick on me. I question this theory, but it makes for a great photo.”

Orange Is The New Baby

“For the first few months of my life, I was orange. I’m from Jersey, so I guess that’s why the doctors said it was nothing to worry about.  You can see the white spots on my arms where they were “molding” me into position with their hands. My fiance on the other hand finds this to be the scariest picture in existence. It’s basically visual contraband in our home.”

The Good Wife

“I was newly married to the gentleman sitting in the garage and this was 1985. Women’s liberation didn’t hit very hard in my house growing up, so when I married young at 19, I felt it was my duty to be a good little wife and keep up his 1978 Camaro Z28. He happily sat there while I did the oil change, too. He’ll tell you that it was all my idea. HA! I’m still married to that guy and love him dearly, but my how times have changed. Oh, and I can’t even remember having a big mullet like that. Good GAWD! I also can’t remember who took this photo, but I’m pretty sure it was my father-in-law, grinning happily that his son had married a ‘good woman’.”
