Recently kevlarchick posed the question “why don’t you guys smile more in family photos”?  We offered up all sorts of excuses theories wild-ass guesses explanations, honestly I’m not sure we really know.

It doesn’t seem to be a new thing though.  I found this old tin type of my Great great great great grand-Dave in Alabama, having been captured by a couple a Rebel troops.   It was taken in 1864 during the great War of Northern Aggression.

No smiles here, no sirree.  That’s him in the chair, lookin all worried like.  It turned out ok though – he was a new recruit to the Alabama 57th Infantry Regiment and didn’t get the memo about grey uniforms.  They finally let him go.  Gave him a big bowl o grits with some red eye gravy and said “go shoot yerself a buncha Yankees, Davey-boy”.

Isn’t that Sen. George Allen on the left?

2. Civil war photograph unearthed, uh, discovered. Whatever. « Dave in Texas - November 24, 2006

[…] My granny called it the War of Northern Aggression. […]

I don’t know nothin’ about the guy in the chair, but the other two dudes are definitely related to each other.

I don’t know nothin’ about the guy in the chair, but the other two dudes are definitely related to each other.

Probably three or four different ways by the looks of them.

Probably three or four different ways by the looks of them.

To me, Dave’s ancestor in the chair is the one who looks like the family tree doesn’t have any branches.

Every woman?

Can you understand this?

We men, don’t thing we are lucky more than once.

So Men love each of you women we love, in a one on one situation.

Men are actually VERY kind people, not just kind but loving and adorative.

I will leave this at that for now.

I get to pick up my man at the airport in about 8 hours, and then I get to make up for all the smoochin’ I missed over the last few days.

Ain’t love grand?

8. lauraw - November 25, 2006

Heh heh heh.

When hubby says he might be going away for some reason or other I tell him, “Oh, ok, I’ll just call Raul.”

Of course, we both know there is no Raul, so we get a chuckle out of it, but on the other hand, he really doesn’t stay away from me very long either.
Its a nice little gimmick.

Feel free to use Raul, Mrs. Peel.
Your loverboy spend a night out with the boys?

“It’s OK, Honey, Raul says ‘hi.'”

9. lauraw - November 25, 2006

Though honestly, my hubby was never one to stay out all night with the guys. I made that last part up.

10. Pool Boy - November 25, 2006

“It’s OK, Honey, Raul says ‘hi.’”

Eeees very close to what Meesus Michael says to Meester Michael.

11. Retired Geezer - November 25, 2006

Whenever Mrs. Geezer would go out of town to visit her relatives, I would tell her to be sure and call me when she was coming back so I could get all the Showgirls out of the house.
They just came over to help me vacuum.

Whenever Mrs. Geezer would go out of town to visit her relatives,

*snort*

13. Raul - November 25, 2006

shhhhhh my love.

do not tell our secrets.

14. kevlarchick - November 25, 2006

I have a special friend called Tito. And as WP says, he’s VERY kind.

Frikin’ Latinos get all the hot IB wimmen.

16. Tito Macanudo - November 25, 2006

Ahhhh, she is the sultry one with the fire in her eyes!

17. Dave in Texas - November 25, 2006

Men, look. Listen. And learn!

This is serious stuff. Pay heed.

18. Raul - November 25, 2006

Si, Senor Lars, but the hunchesbacks horribles, we are getting them too.

19. harrison - November 25, 2006

Is this an example of jobs Americans won’t do?

*runs away*

20. a-a - November 25, 2006

LOL

21. kevlarchick - November 25, 2006

harrison, it’s the job many CAN’T do.

22. Pure Herbal Viagra - November 25, 2006

Sure they can, with a little help.

23. Mrs. Peel - November 25, 2006

He was out of town with his family for Thanksgiving…and frankly, I am the sort of person who needs a lot of time to herself to recharge, so I would have no objection if he wanted to leave me alone for a night.

(None of the guys go steady ’cause it wouldn’t be right
To leave your best girl home on a Saturday night)

Anyway, “Raul” isn’t my cup of tea. I’d prefer a Dafydd or a Rhys.

24. Rhys - November 25, 2006

Oh, really.

25. geoff - November 25, 2006

I am the sort of person who needs a lot of time to herself to recharge

I’m the same way. I get very cranky if I don’t have enough time alone.

26. Dave in Texas - November 25, 2006

not me

27. tito macanudo - November 25, 2006

Stoopid Americans! How can joo have–how you say–de candy–without taking de time to sweeten it up, eh? Dees takes time! No worry, I take care of de sweeter tings for joo. De kevlar, she soooo sweet. Muy caliente.

I’ll take a guess and say that photo was taken circa 2003 at one of those dressup shops with the rotogravere sepia tone photos. Maybe the one in San Antonio? The sticker “patch” on the felt hat is a big giveaway. The guy in the back just moved in the middle of the long exposure.

29. daveintexas - December 7, 2006

Pretty close Mick.

1976.

At Six Flags over Texas in Arlington.

30. Michael - December 7, 2006

And, it’s “rotogravure.”

Just sayin’.

Six Flags over the Midwest did the same thing.

31. daveintexas - December 7, 2006

I’m sorry, I don’t speak Spanish.

32. Michael - December 8, 2006

I was just about to post the rotogravure picture of Mrs. Michael and me in cowby costumes from Six Flags Over The Midwest about 30 years ago.

Then I thought about it.

33. harrison - November 12, 2010

Isn’t that Sen. George Allen on the left ?

34. Dave in Texas - November 12, 2010

yes.

Hello, Newman.

35. lauraw - November 12, 2010

Heh. Fun old thread.

36. Cathy - November 12, 2010

Resurrecting these helps me catch up…

But I’ll never be caught up, will I?

*never*

*sigh*
