The Five-Legged Elephant

“Our first visit to the Denver Zoo. My son asked why the elephant had 5 legs.”

Feeding Frenzy

“A lovely picture I drew of me, my cousins, and brother throwing my mother into shark-infested waters. I distinctly remember adding stripes to the shark because I knew tiger sharks were known to be aggressive. This is neatly labeled on the back ‘Sarah: 7 years old’ and lives on my parent’s fridge. To this day, I have no idea why people weren’t more concerned.”

The Spirit Of Taking

“This is a photo of my younger sister and I on Christmas in 1996. I’m the one with the triumphant look on my face holding the cards and mashing my hand in my sister’s face. I love this picture because it pretty much sums up the relationship I have with my sister. It also tells you a lot about my family… like the fact that my parents took a picture of the situation before pulling me off of my sister.”

Dapper In Denim

“A glorious photo of my partner and his family in 2002 at a church in Gurnee, IL. The reason why all are wearing denim seems to be lost to time.”

Me, Myself, And Eye

“Her eyes were closed for the picture but the company said they could fix that. This “zombie” daughter pic sits on my fireplace!”

Daughter Brawl

“This pretty much sums up my childhood. I’m the blond on the left burying my head in my sister’s lap while she gets in a cheap shot. The youngest is fish-hooking my other sister while my mother looks on and laughs. My father is letting everyone know what his future looks like with four daughters like these.”

Bingo Was Her Name-O

“I’m the smiling kid in the front and my aunt, my grandparents and a cousin are the ones looking at me. We used to play Bingo during the Christmas holidays at my uncle’s home and they were not happy with something I did but I don’t remember why. It must have been something really, really bad judging from their faces.”

Double Rainbow

“My daughter, revelling in the sight of a double rainbow, while her older brother is a complete grump because she wouldn’t share a biscuit. Sums them up perfectly.”

Purple Haze

“One day, back in ’81 or so, MawMaw thought it would be a good idea for us to all enjoy a few glasses of her fermented ‘friendship punch’ before heading down to the photo studio at K-Mart.”
