Look What Grandma Found

“We live near a man-made lake that they partially drain during the winter. We were walking around were the water had receded when Grandma called us over to share her discovery. Probably one of the strangest pictures I have ever seen. ”

Funny Farm

“This was taken on my in-laws property. My father-in-law was a businessman but for some reason he thought he was a farmer too. Apparently he was bad at disciplining his goats.”

Grandma’s Exorcism

“There’s a lot going on in this photo, from the strong 90’s vibes to each family coordinated by color. But the best part by far is that when my grandma saw 5 year old me (standing at the bottom right) wasn’t looking at the camera, she went old school photoshop and chose to replace my head with another picture of me, which is also not facing in the right direction!”

The Christening

“This was my Christening, June 1971. I’m the baby obviously, my Godmother is holding me, my parents are next to her. Their hideous outfits aren’t the “awkward” part of this photo. In the background, my grandmother is pulling my sister’s hair while my brother is recovering from a smack! All of this right on the front steps of a church.”
