It was part of a three camera deal from an aquaintance in L.A.. The
other cameras go into the "I can't throw this away" pile.
Day trips can
be murder when you're a kid. Your parents drag you someplace that
sucks. A place with nothing to do. No beach (which really
sucks when you're a Beach
Bum,) no rides, no nothin'.
"Gee I hate it when dad wears black socks with his shorts."
of sitting atop big boulders seems like fun to parents, but they won't
let you climb on them or anything. You can't throw rocks, you can
only sit there in the sun.
The kids seemed to
like it so much that mom and grannie had to give it a shot. They made
the kids get down first though. Having three generations on those
hazardous rocks is flirting with generational tragedy.
Grannie's collar is pretty cool though. If she pulls the ends of it up
over her head it doubles as a sun hat !
I'm reminded of
Micheal Jackson dangling his baby out the window for the photographers.
Ol' White Legs has his kid perched on the railing in the center of this
shot. Grannie is standing just to the right. She's got her hand over
her mouth. I'm guessing it's altitude sickness or loose dentures. I
don't know who the leggy lady is behind them but I'll bet Dad noticed.
The old dog.
Yup, typical of a
lousy day trip. Some crummy, busted up old trees and a place to sit

"Gee I hope those
people don't fall off that dangerous walkway." "And those boulders !
" "My goodness !" "I
wonder what that black stuff is that's falling all over Junior and I."
Further evidence of
suckiness. Kids can climb trees anywhere. It's no fun when your parents
"Don't fall !"

Apparently there weren't enough photo ops on the day trip. Before this
photograph was taken, the kid could see just fine.
"Whoa DUDE !"
"That's realllly bright,
man !" "You got any Twinkies or somethin' ?"
Check out that table decoration. A group of glass balls. What's up with
table decorations, anyway ? They just take up room and you hafta move
them when you want to actually use
daughther, no doubt. A really pretty pair of ladies, I think. The car
is pretty ugly but that butterfly pocketbook is very groovy.
