Dad

Breakfast In Bed

“This was taken by my mother on Father’s Day 1986. My sister (far right) and I are less than thrilled to be missing morning cartoons. Not to mention our king-for-a-day dad obviously scored the only tray in the house so my eggs were precariously balanced on my lap. As for my sister’s cereal…that most likely ended up in the bed as well.”

Semi Formal

“After spending a few hours getting ready for my junior prom (back in 1998), we had to do some family “portraits”. Apparently my father thought a bathrobe was appropriate attire for these.”

Prom Dad

“My dad had a medical procedure the day of my prom and was out of his mind on pain killers when my mom insisted that I pose with him before prom.  I like to think he would’ve put down the hose for the pic if he’d been in his right mind, but in all honesty it could’ve gone either way.  He has no memory of taking this photo.”

Sightseeing With Grandpa

“Early 90s there was a train derailment onto a gas line near our house. Grandpa thought that was a nice photo op and drove my little brother to the explosion.”

The Pacifist

“I don’t really know what happened. First the pacifier was in my child’s mouth but then the photographer slipped one into my mouth too so I looked at my wife for help and she mouthed the words ‘Play Along’ so I tried to look as classy as I could with a pacifier in my mouth.”
