My new driver's license is here! It's not nearly as bad a picture as the last one I took, back in 2007. In that one I looked like I'd been dragged from the river. I sort of have cute hair in this one. Those rings around my head happen all the time.
Speaking of pictures, I had you send in your old family photos then never put them up for others to enjoy. So here we go.
The reason I thought of it today was because Faithful Reader Just Paula FLOUTED the rules and just sent in her photo today, of her grandmother holding Richard the cat. The back of the picture reads, "Richard, on vacation at the lake." Apparently Richard had a stressful job.
Here is Faithful Reader Amanda's family in...do I even have to say it? 1975. When else would it be? Which REMINDS ME, I still didn't tell you about the article I read about how fashions used to change dramatically, but since the '90s, they really haven't. I must tell you about it someday. Let me slip off my white chunky-heeled sandals and tell you about it soon.
Faith, whose name is not only Faith, she is also a faithful reader, sent this one. She is the baby. She totally looks like she has better things to do. "Can we get this over with and get these MITTENS off? I have a roast in the oven."
My friend Sleeping Beauty's sister sent this one. Sleeping is awake, for once, and playing her drum. The "Hello, look at me" sister, with whom I completely identify, is in the orange yarn. Remember how we used to just put yarn in our ponytails like it was normal?
One of the 4858584 Lisas sent this one, which is not old, but she found that aluminum tree--WHICH I WOULD KILL FOR, 4858584th LISA!--and made her family put on polyester and post in front of it. 4858584th Lisa. She is my people.
I think that is all. If I forgot yours, please note that I just had to schlep through hundreds of emails to find those with attachments. Because god forbid I make a folder and immediately download your pictures to it as your emails came in. God forbid. So if I didn't include yours, let me know and I'll do a search for it.
Thanks for sending, y'all! Do you think our current photos will ever be as interesting?
