Flashback Friday

This is something I will be doing every Friday and maybe jumping on the bandwagon of "Wordless Wednesdays" as well....depends on how much I have to talk about. I already have a lot of catching up to do.

The idea to "Flashback Friday" is to post about anything in your past. Put up pictures of yourself in embarrassingly dated clothing or strange hairstyles that make you cringe and say "Oh God, why?". Tell the story of something that has happened.

 I coin the phrase "Why so serious?" from the Joker in the new Batman movie with Heath Ledger (Rest his soul) because darn it....look at the expressions on our faces.
From left to right: Me, my younger brother J, and my older sister S.
This photo was taken on my grandparents' farm in Missouri in 1991.
My questions are:
1. Who took the photo?
2. Why are we so serious?
3. Why are we in "school pose" with our hands placed neatly on that itchy hay bale?
4. And why the HECK do we all have "California" surfer boy hair? *chuckle*

Answers: I took the photo
I wanted you three to "look off in the distance" - & not have cheesey smiles & be "hams"
I was aiming for an "artsy" photo - something that one day one of you would want to know why you are posed that way - see it worked!
I thought it would be cool to have y'all by the hay bale!
Any more questions? (Gee I sound like MY mom! Which means - you sound like your grammy!)
