FFF: Doing Dishes

alt="funkfotoflashback" />

Welcome back to Funky Foto Flashback, the blogosphere's most underrated meme!

Here I am in my parents kitchen doing dishes with my grandpa Art and my brother. My grandpa loved to do dishes. He would get my cousin, Pearl, and I to do his dishes for a penny. He also would get us to clip his nasty, old man, gnarled toe nails for a penny. We loved him, so it didn't really matter that in the 80's a penny didn't go very far.

I know you are itching to play. Please do! All you need to do is:

1. post your vintage pic on your blog
2. copy and paste the code from the sidebar for the funky foto flashback button onto said post
3. sign in to Mr. Linky to share your vintage pic with the rest of Funky Foto Flashback players and stalkers!

Its so easy!

Nice wallpaper! Their kitchen's awesome now. My, how far they've come. I wonder what our kids will think of our decore' in thirty years?

Becky said...

The wallpaper is seriously awesome!

And I'm playing along today!

I love this! I found out about you from the Suburban Matron. I love that Becky links to cool, but maybe not the most wildly popular blogs. Not saying that you are not wildly popular I am just going by the comment about being underrated. Anyway, looks like fun.

I love that kitchen! (As long as it's someone else's kitchen!) And a penny? That's hilarious!

Thanks for linking me up today. I have been gone all day, and didn't have internet access!

You don't even know! When we bought that house it didn't have any cabinets or a stove or fridge. Zip. After buying the cheapest appliances we could afford we only had $$ left for that bargain bin wallpaper. Who knew we would be nostalgic for something so hideous?

Casey said...

I am itching to play. Next week, knock me on the head on Wednesday night and remind me.

I'm with everyone else, that wallpaper is so damn cool.

I followed Becky/Suburban Matron here as well. Great idea.

Pearl said...

I would go no where near those claw toenails. Every time he would take his sock off to ask me to cut them, I would run! It is funny because my dad's toenails are looking like Grandpa's now. And I think poor Nikki has inherited them too!

And oddly enough, everyday was one of our turns to wash the dishes. Grandpa: "Who's turn is it to wash dishes? Pearl? Becca?"

I do miss that Sycamore house though. Funky wallpaper and all!

I want that wallpaper. Really I do. I'm pretty sure I saw that same print on a top in Macy's last week. How cool would it be to stand in front of that wallpaper wearing the shirt? You'd only see a head!

Also? Thanks so much for your kind, kind words for me over at Sego Lily Day Spa! I'm super excited and hope I end up making the top five! Woot! Thanks again!

I came over from Suburban Matron too. And the reason is because I'm going to dispute that you have the most underrated meme. I know this to be not true, because *I* actually have the most underrated meme. And probably the most uncoolest (is that a word?) -- at least your meme is cool.

Mine is "Small Town Snapshot Sunday" and if you want to observe us over there in a coma, come by on Sunday. It will be a self-esteem booster for you. LOL.
