“C” Is For “Creepy”

“Found this gem while digitizing the family photos. It was taken sometime in the late 70s in Des Moines, Iowa. I’m the little guy with Cookie Monster and my brother, who’s sole comment upon seeing this photo was, ‘miss that hat.'”

Waste Management

“I get it, the 70’s were a bit different. But one photo explains my lifetime of poor self-esteem.”

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.

Smooth Operator

“This is my Dad at a fraternity party circa 1977. Although he’s a mellow and mature 62 year old now, I like to watch Animal House to picture his younger years. Bad hair, worse stache, but amazing shirt.”

Face In The Crowd

“My grandparents decided to have a family photo done many years ago when my aunt was out of town. So, 5 of the 6 children were present for the photo. They decided to later add a photo (a bad photo) of my aunt to perfect the picture and complete the family photo. Honestly, you can barely tell it was even altered.”
