Fun Monday - Brought to you by the number 5

Nekked Lizard Man and Nekked Lizard Lady are hosting Fun Monday for the first time ever! It's always interesting to see what a new host will come up with. NLM and NLL decided to keep it "simple". We'll see...

FIVE PICTURES - FIVE WORDS PER PICTURE. Any 5 (FIVE) pictures, any subject, and any 5 (FIVE) words to describe and/or explain each picture.

Uh-huh. Let's have a go, shall we?

Dad

Your entire post is bracketed by treasures.

Great job.

mjd said...

That is a treasure. I love your picture with the world awaiting. The caption really does fit.

Celeste said...

I love the old pictures.

What a find in the closet cleaning - some day, I will get to it. Really.

SwampAngel65 said...

Are you serious? That guy's a cop? Scary....

Fun pics! Who's the cute baby?

Sayre said...

Yes, the Billy Idol look-alike is my brother Andy, who is now a police officer.

The cute baby is ZBoy at age 4 months. He turns nine at the end of the month!

Megnificent said...

I loved all of your pictures. Especially the Michelin baby!

Faye said...

Where were you in the eighteen year old photos? Scotland? Lovely. I assume the cop works undercover or really gets out of character when off duty!

Beckie said...

I love, love, love that you used old pictures! I took all of mine today. Great post!

IamwhoIam said...

That is one of the scarest cops I've even seen. Thanks for sharing a little piece of you past

thanks for signing up with us - this particular idea was NLL's - mine was a little more entailed - as I believe it would have involved a scavenger hunt, a clay model made our of play - doh (which is not clay) and whether your toilet paper unrolls from the bottom or top. I doubt NLL will ever give me an opportunity to host. Oh well. Happy Monday! NLM

Alison said...

In my defense, when that photgraph was taken, I was on the cutting edge of fashion.

At the time, I LOOKED GOOD!

Your Fun Monday is a Treasure Trove of Memories. Poignant !

Jan said...

Great post. All of your choices are great. Love the baby. About the cop, I'm married to a retired cop, LAPD, I think he was undercover. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

ellen b said...

Robinella said...

I love the old days. Less complicated then.

Holland has always been full of bikes, it's not an especially green country, and the nun is wearing a cap.

How fun to learn a bit about you from your lovely photos with captions today! I posted my Fun Monday Five yesterday at Small Reflections, but didn’t have time to visit until now … so I’m catching up today. I hope you’ll find time to visit. Hugs and blessings,

I loved how you used past photos for this post and isn't it fun to find things like that?

I think Andy looks hot! You have to keep the fashion of the time as a monitor. He has the mid 80s look DOWN PAT.
