“This pretty much sums up my childhood. I’m the blond on the left burying my head in my sister’s lap while she gets in a cheap shot. The youngest is fish-hooking my other sister while my mother looks on and laughs My father is letting everyone know what his future looks like with four daughters like these.”

“My grandmother worked at the Blytheville (AR) Canning Company when I was a kid (owned by Bush’s). At one point, she presented us with matching shirts for Showboat Beans… I’m guessing “Bean Machine” would be powered by flatulence? My mother had the grand idea of a (rare) family photo of us in said shirts. I’m the little kid on the right who can’t close her mouth (still true). IDK if my brother was sticking his tongue out at the photographer or if it had been at me. My mom’s 70’s-era hair is just awesome, as is my dad’s porn-stache (which was usually accompanied by a full beard that he’d just shaven–scaring the bejeebies out of 3-year-old-me). My grandmother passed away ten years ago, and this was a treasured photo still proudly on display in her house when we emptied it out.”

“What was intended to be a mockery of people who take portraits with their pets now makes us mock-worthy.”

We were posing for family photos as a gift to my parents on their 40th Wedding anniversary. Little did dad know his son decided this terrifying grimace was better then the requested happy smiles.
