Grandma

Done With Pictures

“Please notice this excellent photo of my family featuring a cranky grandma, an exhausted mother, a cardboard cut out of a brother who couldn’t be in attendance, and the general sense that everyone has been DONE with taking pictures for at least an hour.”

When In Germany

“This is me and my sister (on the left behind the 2 women). Together with my grandmother and dad we attended the wedding of my grandmothers’ niece in Germany (we are from the Netherlands). The photo was taken around 1984/1985. The art on the wall…timeless.”

Tiger Twins

“I’m not sure what’s more awkward. The matching tiger print overalls my grandmother made us…or the expressions on my grandma and cousin’s face from all of my protesting over these photos. This is the best we got.”

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.”

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.'”

Ten Pack

“This is a photo of my great-grandma and all of her great-grand children. Sears must have been having a special or something because I (front row, pink dress) remember waiting in line for a very long time before it came for our turn to have our picture taken. This explains all the children’s bored/upset faces. It was miserable at the time, but now it’s a funny and iconic family photo.”

Ink Master Jr.

“While my husband was on a business trip, my mom took my second-born to the tattoo parlor. He clearly had questions about this decision.”
