Back To You

“This is a photo of my brother and me in junior high. We had gone to Olan Mills to take family pictures. Why they bothered to print this one and include it in our packet I have no idea. I’m assuming that’s the photographer’s assistant adjusting the lighting.”

The Rainbow Connection

“My mom’s family band, circa 1980. My mom’s the one playing the “gut bucket” — my grandma’s face is superimposed over the whole show. In my opinion, the rainbow suspenders make the whole thing.”

“Who makes three siblings commemorate their headgear wearing days? My mom, that’s who. What teenagers agree to have a professional picture taken in said headgears? My crazy family!”
