Thanksgiving Meltdown

“That’s me with the curls. Apparently not being allowed to stay at the table was enough to warrant a complete meltdown at the family Thanksgiving meal. Everyone else is doing a great job of ignoring me.”

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 for the Griswolds.”

The Joker

“In the photo is my grandpa holding me as a baby in 1989. After grandpa retired, he started a side job as a clown, where he’d go to birthday parties and do magic tricks. He also often wore his boxing shorts from his days as a heavyweight boxer at Michigan State. He was dressing up to entertain the grandkids that day, and the boxing/clown combination certainly made for an interesting photo.”

Three Kates

“This is my friend Kate. I recovered this picture from helping her move a few years ago and with her permission am sending to you. 80’s Kate is fond of books, sitting and perms.”

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.

Altar Bound

“This is my parents getting hitched in Oatman, Arizona on the gallows in ’88. Yes, legally.”

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.”
