The 80’s

Clown Under

“Perth, Australia in the late 80’s. I’m the littlest and pictured with my 2 older brothers and my older sister. We all have no idea who the clown is or why he is even there…just so random!”

Busted

“My mom, bless her soul, absolutely loved her dustbuster and thought all of us should have one for Christmas. We all posed with her and her trusty old one.”

Irish Springs

“Brian, the baby was suffering through the mumps, Dick had gotten his first dose of the herp, mom gave Siobhan the Dorothy Hamill and Deirdra was pissed at the world… perfect day for a family photo!”

The Accidental Tourists

“This is myself, my mother, my dad, and my little brother at Disney World in 1985. I think we could be a close second to the Griswolds.”

Minor Threat

“This is a family portrait from 1987. I just love the contrast of the punk rock kids, coupled with the wholesomeness of Mom and daughter. It brings a smile to all of us, and we want to share the photo on your website.”

Sesame Boulevard

“That’s me being held by ‘terrifying’ Kermit and my older sister standing next to ‘on a bender’ Miss Piggy at the Red Hills Arts Festival in Louisville, MS sometime in the 80s.”

Disney Drama

“1985, Disneyworld. I’m the pouty little girl in the bunny hat, next to my sister and cousin and in front of my parents. I don’t remember what happened but it sure seems like I did or said something inappropriate before the photo was taken.”

The McTourists

“This is my family touring in Germany back in the 80’s. If we were anymore blatantly American, we would have been wearing American flag pants and “I Love America” t-shirts. I’m the one in the blue pants hiked up nice and high. Guess I wanted to make sure everyone saw my socks with Jellies.”

Spirit Of ’86

“1986 in a nutshell. Badly done Dorothy Hamill hair. Socks with jelly shoes. Dad with his smokes in his pocket. And lots of rattan.”
