Barney And Fiends

“Beaver, Pennsylvania 1992 at a birthday party (mine I believe). I was obsessed with Barney, but I knew this one was a “fake.” His eyes still haunt me in the darkest depths of my nightmares.”

Pipe Dreams

“As a child, I apparently used my uncle’s bongs as trophies for my ‘award-winning’ living room dance recitals. Also, that pig penny bank was frightening.”

Carousel

“My mother wanted me to have unique senior photos that reflected my personality. You have already proudly displayed my pic with my face wrapped in a feather boa with my cat but I think this horse pic is more awkward.”

Yellow Fever

“This is what happens when you sneeze during an Olan Mills Christmas picture session. And yes, my parents still used this as our Christmas card. And I have no explanation for the color scheme.”

New Year Cheer

“I’m the second girl from the right in the first row. It was December 1983 and a children’s New Year’s celebration in the USSR. It was common for the children to appear in Halloween-like costumes. Uncle Lenin was also everywhere. Can’t you feel the joy?”
