Backseat Rider

“Christmas of 1982.  I was 2 years old and obviously not the favorite child.  My only option was to take a literal back seat to my sister if I wanted to go sleigh riding. Apparently this was seemed like a safe idea to my dad and my mom who snapped the shot. This picture pretty much sums up the next 30 years of my life.”

Free Bird

“I don’t know where this was taken, I think I blocked the whole experience from my memory. I’m not sure why there is a mime next to a Big Bird lookalike. If you look closely you’ll notice Big Bird’s muscular thighs.”

Heeere’s Blobby

“In the UK we had a TV ‘personality’ called Mr Blobby. My father rented a Blobby costume for my school fair and after trying it on for the first time tripped and fell down the stairs, splitting the suit on the bottom in doing so. Yes that’s me at the bottom of the stairs blissfully unaware of what was hurtling toward me.”
