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.'”

The Queen Of Dew - School Photos

The Queen Of Dew

“When I was a senior in high school, I was obsessed with Mountain Dew. I would have like six a day, any size. There was never a time one was not in my hand. So for my senior photos, I thought it was going to be a great idea to make a throne of Mountain Dew to sit on. I went out the morning of my photos and bought six 24-packs to build my throne. It took me a few weeks to get through all of it. It’s hilarious now because I don’t drink Mountain Dew anymore.”
