Here is me, my ex-wife Janine, and Heather. It’s December 1979. Janine and I are both 19 and Heather is one month old. You can see that I am going through my “don’t I look like Jesus” stage.
It’s now Easter 1983 and I’m 22 and Heather is 3 1/2. Check out Heather’s cute bonnet and purse. It pays to have a gay Daddy when you want to dress up for the holidays. Note the BIG eyeglasses adn the Avon necklace that I am wearing. And yes, that is an original Atari system under that TV.
Summer 1983, I’m 23 and I can only say that I must have been doing drugs heavily. For some reason I thought that getting a perm would be cool. I am standing here in Chip’s BP overalls zipped down all the way because he thought I looked sexy in them. I look like a 1970’s porno star. Thank goodness I got rid of that perm fast.
It’s Christmas 1984. I’m 24, Chip is 22, and Heather (in the corner) has just turned 5. You can’t see it but I have the “closely cropped shadow beard” that was sorta popular. Do you like the flourescent green shirt with the yellow suspenders?
It’s now March 1985 and the 80’s are in full swing. No more glasses cause I had contacts. Note the pleather pants and matching pink, glow-in-the dark tie and belt. The picture in the upper corner was the first picture I ever painted. And yes, I dressed like this at work, too.
Halloween 1987 and most people at work didn’t even recognize me when I came in. It’s still the 80’s and that’s why that outfit has shoulder pads and a bow in the hair. Not bad legs, either.
Well since I was reminiscing over some old pictures for my Merry SITSmas post, I thought it would be fun to look at some more pics. I hope you got as much a kick out of these as I did.
