Brother Nicholas

“My father dabbled in ventriloquism. Apparently having four kids wasn’t enough. He kept his little friends in the closest and I told all my friends my dad played with dolls. Don’t worry, Nicholas, (the actual dummy pictured), got all of our hand me downs.”

Smooth Operator

“This is my Dad at a fraternity party circa 1977. Although he’s a mellow and mature 62 year old now, I like to watch Animal House to picture his younger years. Bad hair, worse stache, but amazing shirt.”

Where Babies Come From

“When my mom went into labor she didn’t make it in time to the hospital, she ended up giving birth in the parking lot of the hospital. My dad had to leave my mom and run inside to notify the staff. After everything happened the hospital gave my dad a shirt. Well fast forward a couple months later he thought it would be a good idea to wear the shirt to church on the day I was baptized. My mom (standing next to him) was trying to not look disappointed. Even my Godmother and Godfather look disappointed.”
