Hello Dolly

“My mom gave my dad a Dolly Parton cake for his birthday in 1984. He was not amused for some reason, even though I know he loves Dolly and apparently he didn’t wear shirts in the 80s.”

On A Pedestal

“While I was away at college my family had to take a portrait for a church directory, so they took a framed photo of me. It was the photographer’s great idea to put me on a pedestal. Also, my Dad and brother had been fighting over something trivial, my Mom was annoyed, and my youngest brother habitually refused to smile for any picture.”

The Inauguration

“My dad was a judge for many years. This was taken at his first inauguration. I was not in the mood for yet another picture and REALLY had to pee. The look on my mom’s face says it all. Through clenched teeth she was probably saying something like, ‘Get your GD hands out of your privates!'”
