Grandpa

The Joker

“In the photo is my grandpa holding me as a baby in 1989. After grandpa retired, he started a side job as a clown, where he’d go to birthday parties and do magic tricks. He also often wore his boxing shorts from his days as a heavyweight boxer at Michigan State. He was dressing up to entertain the grandkids that day, and the boxing/clown combination certainly made for an interesting photo.”

Thug Life

“My nephew’s car was involved in an accident and the windshield was smashed out. Instead of having the car towed, my dad (the grandpa) insisted they drive the car home with no windshield. So, they put on their safety glasses and drove all the way home with the wind in their faces. The funniest part of the picture is the police officer following them who never noticed.”

The Man Without A Face

“My grandfather with my father circa 1974 and my grandma divorced him so she photoshopped him out of the picture and yes, this is in a photo album.”

Having A Gutter Ball

“My parents just texted this to me (they’re babysitting). It’s pouring rain and my dad is teaching my girls ‘how to clean gutters.’ They’re thrilled.”

The Chug

“This is a picture of my family on Easter sometime in the 90’s. I’m on the right with the stonewashed pink pants, mullet to match my older brother’s. The only thing in this picture that focuses the awkwardness away from me is my Grandpa in the next room slamming what I hope to be his first Easter beer of the day because if memory serves me correctly, we always took our pictures before church.”

Rear Views

“This is my grandfather. The butt on the left is his long time girlfriend, and the butt on the right is my aunt. She is a physical therapist trying to help her with her back pain.”

“This is my family back in 1977. My Grandpa got into the bourbon early that day. He is the one passed out beside the tree.”

Grandpa Casual

“My mom sent me this and said ‘I’m trying to figure out where all of us were going??’ I really hope my grandfather wasn’t joining them.”

Tooth Swap

“I received this photo from my Dad while he was babysitting my daughter. When she found out Grandpa could take out his teeth, he let her wear them.”
