Family in the news

6 Mar

I’d like everyone to take a look at the picture below from today’s edition of the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

If you’re asking yourself, “Is that Eva’s sister Didgie celebrating Mardi Gras in St. Louis?” the answer is yes, yes it is.

She’s the one in the back sitting on some dude’s shoulders looking like a holy figure rising from the dead. And yes, those are her friends Sarah and Janie in the front lunging for beads like starving beggars on the street.

Interestingly enough, Didgie isn’t the only family member who’s been featured in the newspaper before. My dad uncovered this gem last year. Apparently, my mom took a little excursion to the Sugar Shack, a male strip club in Milwaukee in the summer of 1979 and landed herself in the Milwaukee Sentinel.

Ahhh, the beauty of Google.

Although I wish I had never read THIS statement:

The formula seems to work well. Gail, 24, a nurse from Chicago, purred, “They were very seductive.”

AHHHHHHHH!!!! TMI MOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love when my family is in the news.

    This picture reminds me of some type of Southern Baptist revival or Pentecostal celebration.

    Note to Milwaukee Sentinel: that bus is, in fact, a horse.
