“I’m the cute little kid in the back. I was about 4 years old and for some reason me and my identical twin brother got the bright idea that it would be fun to go outside and take a whiz on the street. When we came back inside the house, my mom asked us where we went, and we told her. Then my dad got a brighter idea, went and grabbed the camera, and made us go stand in front of our puddles.”

“This is a photo of my younger siblings being forced, by mom, to pose by the Haight-Ashbury sign in San Francisco. This photo has become infamous among our family and friends, we like to call it “Grim, Grimmer, Grimmest”.”

Help Bill recapture the awkwardness of his youth:
“My parents cursed me with this hat (and wardrobe, and throwing skills). It stayed with me through a good part of my awkward years, but I’m happy to report I did end up with a wife and kids so the damage wasn’t permanent. I feel it is my duty to submit this photo, and confess that I have grown nostalgic for the hat. I’ve looked over the years, and Cosmic Caps apparently is long out of business, and ebay is a bust (why anyone would keep one I have no idea). My goal is to find one and send it to my dad who bought the cap for me such that he “could find me in a crowd.” Then maybe I could pass one on to my poor son. Anyway – if you have any idea where I can find one, please let me know.”

“I don’t know whether it was due to the above ground nuclear tests of that era, or what, but a lot of family photos from the 60’s looked like stills from bad late night sci-fi movies.I am only four years old here, and already irreconcilably weird.”

“This is a photo of me when I was about 2 years old around Christmas time. I’m at a house that was decorated every year with hundreds of dolls in various Christmas-themed scenes, but what a pyramid of dolls has to do with Christmas, I don’t know. I don’t remember this at all, so I must have blocked out the creepiness.”
