Clown Crew

“This pic is from the late 60s, taken on Long Island. My aunt Donna and Uncle John with their grandma (my great) Mabel and a terrifying painting of a clown painted by my mom. My aunt with the cat was all about saving animals at that point but grew up to be an amazing saver of humans – she was a 9/11 first responder and is now working in a Covid unit at a hospital in Virginia.”

Scissor Move

“At my niece’s birthday party, everyone was so busy assembling the toy car that no one noticed my son making off with the scissors. (He was fine…my sister caught him at it moments after this pic was snapped).”

Trampoline DIY

“Sydney Australia, when I was about five or six, at my aunties house and my mum still insists she was watching me. Nothing broken that couldn’t be bodged up by an uncle!”

Photoshop Fun With Uncle Steve

“Uncle Steve was having fun with photo editing and sent these out to our family. I’m in the pot on the back burner on the right. And please note the detached arms flailing in the rear pot.”
