The 80’s

Hello Dolly

“My mom gave my dad a Dolly Parton cake for his birthday in 1984. He was not amused for some reason, even though I know he loves Dolly and apparently he didn’t wear shirts in the 80s.”

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.”

Deck The Halley’s

“This is not a picture of terrified 6-yr-old me being held hostage by Santa Claus and his not-so-little helper, but actually a real holiday photo shoot at a toy store during Christmas season in 1985. In case you’re wondering what Santa’s helper was wearing, it was a Halley’s Comet-inspired costume because Halley’s Comet was all the rage in 1985.”

Pony Up

“My brother and I took a pony ride at the Whaling City Festival in the 80s and the pony ride operator had swagger.”

O’ Mighty Mullet

“My friend Mike’s rock star mullet when he was two years old in 1989 in Fairbanks, Alaska. I think it’s one of the best photos on earth.

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!”
