So, we’re back from our trip to see the family, and extended family, at my Grandparent’s 60th wedding anniversary. A good time was had by all, although the Mrs. got a bit overwhelmed by my…boisterous…relatives. There may actually be some insanity in my family. For instance, someone made the suggestion to bring laminated pictures on a stick of all family members that weren’t able to be there – for one reason or another (best reason is being stationed in Iraq. Second best reason is less than a month till giving birth). These poor souls have no idea what was done to their likenesses. But have no fear, there IS photographic evidence, so without further ado, I give you…heads on sticks wearing baby clothes!

 

It’s just a little strange, how real they look, n’est pas? What you don’t see are all the pets whose pictures were also put on sticks. They weren’t subjected to the same indignities the human relations were. Making this even worse is that all three guys have married or are (were?) going to marry into this strange family. Maybe next time they’ll show up to the family functions…middle-east conflicts be damned. Who knows what’ll happen when you’re not there to defend yourself…
