What's Wrong with This Picture?

It's Middle Son's birthday today and I was digging through the family photos for something to post about when I found this old gem. Let's inspect this photo a wee bit closer.

 The first thing that jumps out at you is The Mister in that cut off shirt. Really? I mean, really?

 If you can take your eyes off The Mister's love handles, the next thing you might notice is that Number One Son is holding a Lawn Dart. Yes, it's the infamous lethal weapon of the 80's and both kids lived to tell about it. I'm not sure how. They were both pretty accident prone. We had 911 on speed dial in those days.

The last thing you might notice is how cute that dark haired kid is. Gosh, I miss that little guy.
Happy birthday Zak!

As for those Lawn Darts, I noticed today that Daddio still has three boxes of the illegal things in the garage. I wonder what he has planned.


  1. Haha - that's so funny - i was just telling another friend about lawn darts. My grandparents had a set - they also had a 10 ft tall boulder (about 10 ft wide too) in the middle of their front lawn that we used a the "net" with the targets placed firmly on either side. You couldn't see where you were throwing your dart - you also couldn't see if you opponent was wandering too close, or if your badly aimed dart was going to take them out. Between that and the Crisco'd up sleds we use to take off rocky cliffs, it's amazing we made it to our teens.

  2. Ha. Ha. Love the shirt! Where did the time go? Zak is just as adorable today as he was in that picture :)

  3. Too funny! I note the shed in the background is listing also!

  4. Oh my!!! I don't want anyone to pull out the pictures of me in the 80s!!!
