This is how I rule.

Which is more embarrassing -- putting your car in a ditch, or driving a 1991 Dodge Caravan SE?

I pulled over to take pictures, and the shoulder was steeper and softer than I expected, and the car tipped over nearly 90 degrees. It was a trick climbing out. A guy came along not 2 minutes later and offered to pull me out with his tractor. No damage to the car, just to my pride.

Sean, 21 years ago

I always found this picture to be kinda strange. Sean must have been about 6 or 8 months old, and this was maybe the only time we took him to Sears to get a 'professional' photograph taken. Remember when people still did that? He only looked like this for a few minutes, minutes I don't remember. I think the photographer propped him in an unnatural pose so he looks like a baby orangutan.

Anyway this picture is 21 years old. I scanned it last night as a test case for my new scanner.
