Garden Party

“I am the baby on the grass here. And contrary to what it looks like, I was sleeping. Mom had brought me home from the hospital in Mobile, Alabama back in 1967 (the only girl) and Dad wanted to get us all in a photo. Dad staged that ghastly floral placement but he ended up owning a very successful landscaping company for over three decades so he CLEARLY stepped up his game.”

“Toowoomba, QLD, 1997. A family friend who lived next door wanted to get into photography and needed practice so we were the guinea pigs.”

Dazed And Confused

“What’s confusing (echoed by the bewildered looks on our faces) is that *this* is the photo that our parents chose to buy. How bad were the others?

“This picture is of my little sister and me in 1996. I loved playing with my baby sister so I was holding her up in the air over my head, playing ‘airplane’. My mom told me moments before this photo was taken that she just ate and that I probably shouldn’t do that but I told her that she already burped and playing with her will be fine. Mom was right.”
