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’.”

“This is my family touring in Germany back in the 80’s. If we were anymore blatantly American, we would have been wearing American flag pants and “I Love America” t-shirts. I’m the one in the blue pants hiked up nice and high. Guess I wanted to make sure everyone saw my socks with Jellies.”

“This is a photo of me (front left), my little brother (front right), my older sister and her older boyfriend taken in her bedroom sometime in summer 1984. I know the era because of the Van Halen posters on the wall and the RUSH pins on my shirt. I don’t remember why we posed for this picture- and I REALLY don’t know why my little brother and I look like we’re modeling for young punk magazine! It’s a strange little scene there. The Van Halen posters really crack me up.”
