Can't decide which is scarier...

... the Halloween costumes my brother and I are wearing in this picture (c. 1979) or my Grandmother's zebra striped couch in the background. This might also be proof that I had a fondness for nude women, even back then.

You and your brother, not the couch.

Love that picture. I always undressed my dolls as well and never knew why. NOW, I know. hehe

Kind of bummed out today because we had to cancel our trip to Florida due to the hurricane. We'll try again in April, this time for an entire week. YEA.

Glad to see you back.

God that made me laugh.

I have to get a costume. Perhaps I'll go out dressed as an ASTRO!

LOL That is a cute picture.

Didn't we all have a fondness for naked dolls? My mom used to yell at me to dress my Barbie dolls. She got mad because she bought so many outfits for them, but they always seemed to be naked. But I didn't discriminate. Ken was naked too.

You think that's bad? My mom's couch is still covered with plastic after all these years.

Casper! How cute. But man, I bet your faces were sweaty. Not from the nude girls, just the masks. :)

love the costumes....something about those old plastic, simple, silly costumes are so classic...and funny!

freddy said...

i shudder to think what costumes were forced upon me as a child. but i'd have to say, the couch is scarier. :) thanks for the chuckle - needed it today!

Didn't you just love those plastic maskes. They would get all wet inside from your breath. Just disgusting.
Too cute though.

Oh! Thanks for two out-loud laughs - the previous post about W and then the quip about naked women. But I have to say the couch my folks had was way tackier than that striped one in the picture. It eventually ended up with a very sketchy neighbor of ours who put it out on his FRONT PORCH!

Sublime...

You did start the craze, and I think it is a GOOD THING!

I loved that you thought Conniejane and I were related!

I love how this blog stuff enables us to give each other the "back story."

Totally cool. Actually Conniejane and I were siblings in a past life, playing baseball for the same team!

Go Astros!

You are a man who is very secure with his manhood, posting a picture of yourself holding a doll on the internet. Nice. That couch is very scary.
