Dearly Departed

I missed family pics due to work. Now I’m like the son who died that nobody can get over.

Leave The Stain, Cover My Name

“Back in 4th grade, I was too young to know how to do laundry. Here we are at a family outing taking. Mother had dressed me in my nice stained shirt with my name on it. But for some reason, we don’t want anyone to know who I am, so let’s cover up my name and leave the stain. Gonna have to check all my old pics now and see how many my clothes are stained. No wonder I never got any dates.”

Photoshop In The 60’s

“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.”

Preppie And Punk Rocker

“My brother and I are very different. I was a high school dropout and he was a top student, but we both turned out very well. I’m in the Black Flag shirt and he’s in the sweater. Mom got a coupon for free photos at the mall so she dragged us, and history was made. I consented only on the condition that I could wear whatever I wanted. Unfortunately, I also allowed my mom to blow dry my hair like that.”

Don’t Blink

“This was suggested by our photographer to not be included in our final album. ‘Nonsense,’ I said. ‘And dress it up with some sparklies for poops and giggles.’ We love it so much we are thinking of making it into a large portrait complete with a sparkly frame with little butterfly ornaments. It’s sure to *spark* some interesting conversation. And a good deal of awkwardness to boot.”

The Dummy Pose

“My daughter and I years ago. I had a beaver mullet and she looks like my ventriloquist’s dummy.”

Picking A Winner

“My family, the Dalys. Taken in the early 1970s. I’m the big brother. We were getting family photo at FOX studios and this was the first photo they took. My sister obviously was still getting ready. The photographer thought it was funny and my folks did too, so they had it printed. We had another taken but this one is the winner. We still talk about to this day. Here’s a photo from dad’s 73rd birthday two days ago.”
