Tourist Trap

“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.”
