“At a family friends home for Thanksgiving dinner who deals in high end antiques for a living. So under a c.1500s painting and sitting on an Empire era sofa, my boyfriend casually had his arm around our jack russell with the hosts yorkie on his lap. I thought it would make a very sweet photo so snapped the picture just as our dog attempted to nail the yorkie. Both immediately jumped off the couch. We really weren’t sure what happened til we looked at the photo.”

“Easter 1967. The Easter Bunny brought two baskets — one with candy for me, one with Tareyton cigarettes for my father.”

“My parents are both very serious people and do not joke around. My brother and I joke about my involvement in my sorority, Alpha Phi, and my minimal commitment to my chapter. After taking a Thanksgiving family photo, my brother and I asked my parents to make the “throw what you know” Greek Alpha Phi sign with their hands and mouth. They had no idea what was happening and complied out of confusion.”

It’s a beautiful thing when a father and daughter can share a moment like this.

“Initial photo taken around 1963….no one remembers having the photo taken or taking the photo or why we took the photo. We are 4 sisters and 3 of us are dressed very formal, while our baby sister looks like an urchin. We also have a Brother (we call him Brother) that must have run and hidden when he saw his crazy sisters with Bibles and posing like this! The second photo was re-created on Thanksgiving of this year…2013, 50 years later.”
