Teens

First Date

This is me on my very first date. The lovely young lady in the photo took pity on me and said ‘yes’ when I invited her to the 1987 Los Fresnos, Texas High School Homecoming Game. (We were in 7th grade.) As you can tell, I’m REALLY happy to be on a date.

Weeney Roast

“Me being an Uber Goth teenage posing next to tombstones unknowingly covering the ‘S’ in ‘Sweeney.’ Kind of ruined the mood of the photo!”

Trolls: World Tour

“That’s me in the early 90s and I was obsessed with Trolls. For my birthday, my mom bought a men’s xl t-shirt and sewed pockets all over it so I could carry them around with me.”

Got Goth?

“1991 High school Graduation photo. I was goth. Can you tell? All of the kids got 2 sets of photos, one with and one without the cap and gown. I refused to wear the cap for either photo. It didn’t fit anyway.”

One Luftballoon

“We hiked a LOT in the early 80’s, whether I wanted to or not. The balloon apparently did nothing for my mood.”
