Playing Possum

“That’s my grandfather (Pappy) kneeling, my sister in his lap, and my cousin standing. I believe it was my uncle’s possum – he was known for taking in and rehabbing animals in a spare bathroom. This was taken in 1969 in Grand Junction, Tennessee.”

Pecking Order

“My mum, me as a little baby and one of my cousins behind us. This was my first Christmas and my godparents gave me this chicken as a gift. We lived in a 2nd floor flat and I was terrified of it so it had to go back to their farm. To this day I have no idea why they thought that this would make a perfect Christmas gift for me but it was the sweetest and most Slavic thing I’ve ever experienced.”

When Pigs Fly

“My mother’s attempt at a Christmas card photo circa 1994. The family pig Petunia would have none of it and attacked my younger brother while my other brother looks on gleefully.”

Pet Project

“Here we have a photo of my dad with a poodle, a Siamese cat and a raccoon…that is nibbling on his ear. My grandpa looks on with sheer amazement. Circa 1967.”
