Grandpa

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.”

Ready For Them To Leave

“I found this while going through family photos and I asked my Mom and Aunt,”Who’s the old shirtless guy that we seem to LOVE so much?” The answer: “Oh! that’s your Great-Grandpa Floyd.”

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.”

Maker’s Mark

“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.”

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.”
