“Me sitting in a seat attached to a bare concrete wall at the pool while my siblings swam. Childcare in the 90’s was wild, man.”

Do You Want To Build A Snowman?

“My sister-in-laws, back in the day, couldn’t have been prouder of their snowman creation. I’m sure theirs was the tallest in town, and it is obvious they used every scrap of snow they could find.”

Parrot Head

“Either I was really persistent or my mom was done being creative with the costumes but I cut 2 eye holes in the hollowed out top of a piñata and walk around the neighborhood as a Parrot Head. 1972.”

Baby Shark

“This is me in 1976 in my bedroom. My father thought putting a pool table in my bedroom was an appropriate birthday gift for a 2 year old.”

Cut The Corduroy

“That’s me in brown wide wake corduroy pants with a suit jacket. Brother is on my lap with grandfather and parents looking on intently. Guess they were afraid I was going to drop him or they couldn’t get over my fashion statement.”

Patterns

“This my younger brother and I, taken around 1970, when the Partridge Family was a big hit. The vests were crushed velvet and our hair was plastered with Dippity-do so it would stay in place.”
