Say Yes To The Vest

“On family picture day, we were made to wear these homemade vests with prints of Scottish terriers on them. But what the camera doesn’t capture is the shame we felt when we put them on. Unable to look each other in the eye, we bore our humiliation with silent equanimity. The dogs and the baby weren’t having it either.”

“Visiting my Grandfather’s grave in 1997. I’m the one looking in the camera, hoping my Mother’s clown gene is recessive.”

The Lie Down

“We attempted to get a family photo with my grandparents and all the grandkids. Charlie was not being too cooperative. There’s always one in the family!”

(not that I needed a picture to remember that time in my life.. ;))”

And Then There Were Six

“This family photo hung in my Pop and Gram’s house for years. To say they didn’t like my aunt’s ex-husband may have been an understatement.”
