It's a Family Affair

I had mentioned my brother and his wife in my last post, but didn't mention how creative they both are. They decided to paint my brother's prosthesis over the weekend, and this is what they came up with. You can see the full details here.

They are pretty funny. One year for Halloween, he attached a toy beaver to his wooden leg and went as a lumberjack under attack.

Any interesting relative stories you'd like to share? ;)


  1. I love it! I don't think someone who would paint this would worry about your erotica. I think they'd brag about you to their friends. I know I would!

  2. LOVE the beaver idea & how the prothesis came out--beautiful!
    My mom & her brothers & sisters used to all load into her van & go garage sale-ing together. They went up to a house w/a lot of people--in suits, for some reason--milling about the front of the house. It turned out to be a wake.
    I have dozens more. I'm not proud. <:\

  3. What a great paint job! So cool. I have a relative with a prosthesis. I'm going to send this to him.

  4. You know, Edie, you do have a point. I mean, the guy also has pierced nipples, for crying out loud. His wife is much more innocent and conservative. :)

    Lana, that's too funny. Did they still try to buy anything? ;)

    Avery, you might mention that he also once bought a pair of Converse sneakers in his regular size, and a matching pair in baby shoes. He wore the regular one on his natural foot, and attached the baby size to his peg leg. He claimed he was going to go "kick a little ass." He's very creative in his own way. ;)

  5. Kate said: "I mean, the guy also has pierced nipples, for crying out loud..."

    In my defense, that's just 'cause it's the most convenient way to hook up the jumper cables during sex.

  6. Hmm... "Anonymous" didn't leave a name, but the voice does sound familiar...


Say what you will...
