Crappy Birthday

“This must have been my 10th or 11th birthday. It was a custom that the cousins would give out the birthday spankings, but apparently it got a little rough. I think I look terrified. It’s like a scene out of “Lord of the Flies.” Notice the John Travolta poster in the background, and the fact that my brother is laughing maniacally and holding a leather belt.”

Good Time Girls

“Is that a name for a 7-8 year old softball team, or a gentleman’s club?”

The Final Edition

“It was 1988 and these novelty photos were all the rage at whatever theme park we were visiting that summer. It was hot, our bowl cuts were wilting, and even Kermit was over it.”

Roller Girl

“I found this photo of my parents and I and I now see where my daughters inherited their wonderful ability to roll their eyes at me.”

Top Dog

“This photo is of my father-in-law, his sister, and their dog when they were kids. The dog was very loved by their mother and she thought it needed to be included in the background of her children. She loved the dog so much that he is even covering up part of her son.”

Snowblind

“This photo was taken in the early 90’s. I am the Pink Panther and the Michelin man’s hybrid in the middle. I still wonder if that visit to the ski resort was a last minute decision, because that’s the only explanation I can find for our outfits.”

Tube Tops

“This is a portrait of me and my mom taken at the local Woolworth’s in the late 70’s. My mom thought it would be cute to take photos in our tube tops. I posted this pic on FB as it’s always been one of my favorites; I thought it was so sweet. Two weeks later, a friend saw it on FB and suggested that it could be a contender for your site. I HAD NEVER THOUGHT OF THE PHOTO IN THAT LIGHT, but now that I see what others see, I can’t stop laughing.”
