“I’m in front, brother in back, mom on right. In a hot tub in a garage in Vail, CO ~1977 after a day of skiing. Brother with very unfortunate head gear (how come kids don’t have to wear that anymore?). Brother and I were in inner tubes, for some reason. I’m pretty sure my mom DOES have a swimsuit on.”

“My mother is pregnant with me in this photo, you can see my older sister, and my cousin. The old farts are the photographer/my grandad, and my gran. Then my mother and her 2 sisters are sitting, and their spouses are standing. Creepy Uncle Stu is the only one posing. My dad is clearly enjoying time with his in-laws.”

“This is my brother and I. I was around nine and he is about 6. Pink shirts and suspenders really? I look like a cross between Ralphie from Christmas Story and a young Larry King.”
“My family at the dentist. I’m in the chair, the dentist is my uncle, and for some reason my grandmother decided this was a great time for a family picture.”
