Sitting Pretty

Side By Side

“This was my year 12 formal and my Mom and I didn’t really want to be there. We’ve always been quite hands-offsy.”

Eye Of The Tiger

“This was at my high school Daddy-Daughter Dance in 1990. I loved this sweater and wore it often and the tiger is like a third person in the photo. The hair, the sweater…can you guess that I’m a Jersey girl? :)”

Leotard Chic

“I spent much time in a leotard during the late 1970s/early 89s, evidently much to the chagrin of my grandmother and sister, both giving me the stink eye here. Mum seems not to care. Thanks, mum.

Muscle Head

“I ordered this cake for my son’s birthday. When we saw it we were all confused. However, the birthday boy loved it and thought it was hilarious. I’m still curious who thought this cake looked good!!!”

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!”

Pole Position

“This is me (on the pole), my impressed sister, and my disappointed mother circa 1984. My dancing career never took off but I guess there’s still time.”
