The 80’s

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.”

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.”

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