Grandpa

Not Another Trip To NASA Space Center

“We moved to Houston from California and every time family would come to visit, we had to take them to the NASA Space Center. It held no interest to me and I hated the long, hot summer days touring the Space Center. These are my German grandparents, and I remember it was really windy and stuff was blowing in my eyes and I was miserable but my grandma would have none of my bad attitude, so here she is yelling at me for not looking up at the camera.”

Downsized

“My brother and his ex wife separated. Afterwards, we didn’t have a family photo without her that included my son. This was my Opa’s solution: cutting out a photo of my son and pasting it into the family photo that was taken the year before the ex came around.”
