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.”

“No Sister”

“Drew this when I was about in first grade, circa 1993. Needless to say, I wasn’t the biggest fan of my sister at the time.”

Maui Meltdown

“My family was leaving Maui after a 3 week stay to go back to cold, rainy Canada. I had a major meltdown at the airport. As you can see, my mother is not impressed, my sister is amused, and my Dad took it as a photo opportunity.”

Favorite Things

“Here we see my uncle and grandparents, in a photo taken by my mom. My grandpa (the one with the 3-foot long pointy shirt collar) is happily showing us a centerfold spread from a gentlemen’s magazine while my uncle and grandma display a crochet blanket. My mom told everyone to grab their favorite item from around the house before she took the photo.”
