Garden Party

“I am the baby on the grass here. And contrary to what it looks like, I was sleeping. Mom had brought me home from the hospital in Mobile, Alabama back in 1967 (the only girl) and Dad wanted to get us all in a photo. Dad staged that ghastly floral placement but he ended up owning a very successful landscaping company for over three decades so he CLEARLY stepped up his game.”

Bunny On The Loose

“It seemed like a good idea at the time: the Easter Bunny emerging from the gardening shed to surprise the children and join the egg hunt. My then 4-year old daughter didn’t think so. And when the shed door crashed open and the Bunny stumbled out and staggered about because he couldn’t see out of the costume, can you blame her?”

The Underoo Tutu

“One year my grandmother bought all of us these beautiful tutus, but all I wanted were underoos, which my mom wouldn’t buy for me because she thought they were hideous. Fortunately, my uncle came through for me and I was so psyched.”
