Family Portrait

Condolences

“I’m in red, with my 2nd cousin and her grandmother (which was my grandmother’s sister.) We’re standing in a family cemetery, in front of my great-grandfather’s tombstone. Why in the heck are we posing with Cabbage Patch dolls? ‘cuz it was cool. We certainly weren’t.”

Sausage For Dinner

At least, I think it’s a sausage. This is my mother and two of her sisters-in-law. My dad is taking the picture, and it looks like they are competing for his attention each in her own way.”

Night Moves

One of dad’s many talents is wearing suits.

Drive-Thru Safari

“This photo of my family was taken at one of those drive-through safari places in the 80s. My brother thought the politically incorrect “tribesmen” were real and was terrified. My mom hates snakes. I’m the one with the live snake (yes, it’s real) around my neck and although I love them, I’m struggling because it was a lot heavier than me. And my Dad? He’s just excited that his shorts are shorter than my mom’s.”

Beachy Keen

“This is photo of my family and I at a beach-themed family dance put on by the school. Unfortunately I’m the one with the full denim outfit and black work boots with orange laces.”

The Ginsus

Sometimes, the best defense is knives. Lots of knives.

The Scream 2

“Found this in a box of photos from my parent’s attic about 5 years ago. No one remembers the details including my mom. Maybe it was too traumatic…. I’m the one screaming.”

This merry bunch just can’t get enough wood.
