Give Me A Break

“This is a picture of my Dad during our 1997 trip to Disney World in Florida. Fanny packs and mid-riff shirts, and nut-hugging shorts were Dad’s preferred ensemble. He had started a mullet a couple of years before this and refused to cut it until he retired. He’s still working, but my mom told him she wouldn’t go with him on their 32nd Anniversary cruise celebration in February 2011 unless he cut it. He finally gave in.”

Another Mine

“Dad loved to visit mines and quarries. The rest of the family had little choice but to go along for the ride. Apparently, we rebelled by pulling our sweater sleeves far out of shape. Despite the mandatory rubber outfits and helmets, Mom always looked stylish.”

Breaking Point - Kids

Breaking Point

“We shelled out to stay at this lovely lakeside resort in McCall, Idaho. The hope was to capture a scenic and memorable photo in front of the lake for our annual holiday/Christmas card. ‘Memorable’ is what we ended up with, as the ‘twouchebag’ (I say that in the most loving way) had a full on meltdown because his (a-hole) parents dared to suggest he recite a standard, ‘cheeeeeeze’ for the photo opp.”
