The Triangle

“My mother got her hairdresser diploma in 1987. I was a poor innocent victim of her experiments. I guess she put a billiard triangle around my head and put in some hairspray.”

My Moment With Minnie

“That’s me and a terrifyingly sinister Minnie Mouse (zoom into the eyes if you dare) in the late 1980s at a hotel we were staying in. At first glance I thought my hand was tied to the other child’s but then realised it was ‘Minnie’s’ gloves.”

Stuck in the Middle With Them

“Halloween, 1988. My mom made the clown costumes and did the make up. I still have not recovered.”

One Luftballoon

“We hiked a LOT in the early 80’s, whether I wanted to or not. The balloon apparently did nothing for my mood.”

The Cutting Crew

“This pic is my mom, dad, brother, sister and her husband, me and my demonic-looking son. This family portrait was taken in the 80s…we were really a scary crew.”
