All For The Nookie

“This is me, with my Gran at Bridlington in roughly 1979. For any youngsters, I must explain that Nookie Bear was a puppet of ventriloquist Roger deCourcy.”

Stone Cold

“This is my grandmother posing proudly with her gallstones. She had them removed as a teenager and was told they were the biggest the doctors had ever seen. I shared her pride in this, so lucky for me I was willed the actual gallstones when she passed away.”

Glamour Grams

“My grandmother and great grandmother around 1992 or 93. According to my grandma, ‘We went to one of those photo places in the Palm Desert mall and they duded us up like floozies. We howled when we saw these pictures.'”

Clown Crew

“This pic is from the late 60s, taken on Long Island. My aunt Donna and Uncle John with their grandma (my great) Mabel and a terrifying painting of a clown painted by my mom. My aunt with the cat was all about saving animals at that point but grew up to be an amazing saver of humans – she was a 9/11 first responder and is now working in a Covid unit at a hospital in Virginia.”

The Red Carpet

“Mid 90s at my nana’s house. For some reason, all the kids in the family would have their pictures taken on the stairs by the toilet.”
