More Funny Photos From Your Past

Acting gay because I'm carrying a purse:



Cooking burgers in a pitch-dark campsite:



With a balloon siren thing that sounds like a dentist's drill:

Back when we were reading up on raising babies (1992), I learned that for the first week or so they'll imitate almost any facial expression. Seems to be true.

The second photo was taken at the Ko'olina resort lagoons and is one of our favorite family photos. I haven't figured out exactly what to do with it but someday our kid's going to start bringing her dates home to meet the parents, and we'll have this prominently displayed...

This is circa 1956 -- we had just moved into this house in Dallas. In the family this is affectionately known as "The Nerd Family" photograph. That's me, second from your right.

To compound the horror, my Grandfather took this with his stereo camera -- the original, through a stereoscopic viewer, is even more amazing.

Great photos guys!

Since I'm back from my trip and almost recuperated, I'll see if I can find some pics...well, the ones I can post.

Well I found a few....

The first one is DH 'dancing'...I'm the boob with the boob and flailing arms behind him....circa 1983.

Next, a shot of me in Vegas after about 3 hours sleep in 2 days....circa 1989.

The last one is me with a shag...heh....1974.

The photo of me with the tennis racket is the one my Dad used to bring out to embarrass me.

The wedding photo is a family photo where my Dad was "Best Man" and I managed to spoil the group photo by strangling my sister at moment the photo was taken.

After my MiL died and FiL moved to a smaller house, all the adult children took turns having Christmas at their homes. The first year it was at our house. It included a traditional Christmas dinner for 20+ people.

Dinner came off without a hitch, but I caught flack for running the whole thing with too much of my type A personality showing. One of the BiL's caught it all on film, including a pic of the Operational Order and my wife's rebellion. The last picture is a bit blurry, but the Princess is saluting me while simultaneously giving me the raspberry. Another BiL, standing next to her, looks on with amusement.

And yes, Christmas Dinner commenced at exactly 1620 hours, and not a second later. And it was perfect.

Honestly, I'll never understand why they would call me a perfectionist like it was something bad.

I may have been born with my eyebrows already the right size for an adult face. It took me a little while to "grow into" them.

Alan, you have a striking resemblance to Mick Fleetwood - the beard really brings it out. Any relationship? Inquiring minds, blah, blah, blah!

Incredible coincidence - as I am reading and responding to this post, Fleetwood Mac is playing on the radio

No, there is no relationship, or any common musical ability. (As a senior in High School I was a sailor in a performance of HMS Pinafore once, but that was the pinnacle of my music career).

We didn't find photos of my mother's childhood until over 15 years after she'd died, when my daughter was already nearly 10 years old. The girl on the left is my mother at about five years old, and the girl on the right is my daughter at the same age. Our daughter had just had her hair cut to that shorter length for her school photo, and she grew it right back out again.

Apparently I'm just the intergenerational genetic custodian.
