Awkward Holiday Photos

Yes, it's that time of the year again and here is this years crop of Awkward holiday photos

Below is my personal entry.

We found this photo Christmas card while going through my deceased in-law's photo albums. It took a second to figure out what that red bow was attached to...

OMG I saw the photo and read the comments and said "what's going on, the dog is blond and VERY visible" but I still couldn't figure out the bow on the right. So I looked AGAIN and then AGAIN and finally I saw the black dog ... too funny

I kept staring (rather too intently) at the photo. Then I had the rather embarrassing thought that somebody might have come into the computer room, saw what I was staring at and quietly sneaked out. Anyhow, I still couldn't quite make out (poor choice of words) what I was looking at. Then I had the idea to put my mouse (another poor word choice?) over the picture. Doing that brings up "click image for larger version." I think I need to stop right here...

OK - I did expand it and you still can't see that dog too clearly....I came back to this thread and am laughing so hard again.....did they really send that out?? hahahahaha - this is something you could bust that guy on for YEARS - every Christmas....this could be one of those round-robin Christmas cards with comments every year...

Tempting as that might be, we have absolutely no idea who these people are. We found this when going through my deceased in-law's old photos. The card has first names only and no address.

This is not a Holiday photo, but a photo from a family wedding back in 1963 that we found while clearing my Dad's house after he died, Christmas 2009.

The obnoxious kid ruining the photo by strangling his little sister is yours truly.
