The Fix Of ’76 - Christmas

The Fix Of ’76

“We had a professional photographer come to our house to take a family photo. When we got the photos back, all of them had something wrong– someone’s eyes were closed, weird smile, whatever–except for the last photo, which we thought was perfect and sent out on our Christmas cards. Then…we saw it. I (the youngest) evidently was having underwear creepage that needed to be fixed right then. At that very moment. And to this day, no one will ever let me forget The Great Underwear Fix of 1976.”

Beating The Odds - Birthdays

Beating The Odds

“This is a school assignment I did when I was about to turn eight. I was excited that my friend Kim was coming to my birthday party. I also reminisced about something my mother had said to me when I was younger. Gee, thanks Mom. I loved Miss Smith’s response: “Why not?” My mother and I had a bit of a strained relationship to say the least. LOL.”

Food Mountain - Kids

Food Mountain

“My family and I just spent the day at Disney’s Magic Kingdom in Orlando, FL.  This is a photo of what $70 will get you: 2 hotdogs, 4 fries, 2 corndog bites, 5 soft drinks (the lady threw in the waters for free when she saw me ask for 5 large soft drinks for me & my tiny children) and chairs that are outrageously too small for the tables.  Oh, and all the magic your heart could desire, judging from the looks on my children’s faces.”

“C” Is For “Creepy”

“Found this gem while digitizing the family photos. It was taken sometime in the late 70s in Des Moines, Iowa. I’m the little guy with Cookie Monster and my brother, who’s sole comment upon seeing this photo was, ‘miss that hat.'”
