Retirement has never looked so delicious.

“Dong, what happened to Grandpa’s AUTOMOBILE?”
too fresh and sassy!
Working from residence doesn’t imply that we’ve a pastime that we can depart anytime we want. I just signifies that we should use a while a day in our online job and have the remainder of the time to do other things.
Unknown to most, Warren Buffet and Margaret Thatcher often enjoyed cocktails after a rousing game of shuffleboard
I have those same cups
the glasses might just be white, orange and red striped with clear tops? you never know..
It is the prospect of dressing in the manner of this gentleman to which I look forward for my own golden years. The “drinking in the afternoon with my pruney wife” part is nice, too.
I agree. The socks aren’t real. They’ve been ‘chopped.
oh my, this is just such a classic, I almost can’t believe my eyes.
If these were my grandparents, I’d frame this and display it proudly.
Oh, yes…Bye the way…They always drank Highballs…Doesn’t everyone?
I submitted this photo…The print was about 3.5 inches square, and the color was lousy. I scanned it and cleaned up some of the dust and scratches and adjusted the color a little. I knew these people and the socks are real not “Photoshopped”.
Margaret Thatcher and Truman Capote having cocktails. 😉
LOL! The first thing I said when I saw this pic was, “Is that Margaret Thatcher??” But I think Truman there was ahead of his time. The Harry Caray eyewear collection wouldn’t come out for another 15 years.
I was thinking Mr. and Mrs. Howell, myself.
I, don’t ask me why, at a glance thought of the “not cool” grandparents with the exchange student in Sixteen Candles…
And the third glass is for……?
Definitely a Florida Mobile Home Community-I think my grandparents used to live there!
This could have been my in-laws, may they rest in peace. He wasn’t the sharpest dresser, and could growl like a bear, but he was a big ol’ softy father-in-law. My mil finally got her “colors” done, and from then on, he was always dressed a bit of the same, but in “his” colors, and all color coordinated. Loved ’em!
there is nothing awkward about this picture, this is a couple clearly enjoying their retirement. My wife and I hope to be half this cool when we are their age.
Are you sure your wife agrees?
hahaha! and the win goes to Hereintx!
“hmm…this ain’t too bad. It’s just an old cou….OH MY GOSH THE SOCKS!!!!!”
I want to be him when I grow old.
I like how he coordinated his belt with his drinking glass, that Fashinisto!
Livin’ the good life.
I don’t think those pink shorts are pulled up high enough…
What?!!! Is he crazy…buckled shoes?!!! Those went out years ago!!!
What, like 35 years ago? About when the picture was taken?
My father-in-law dresses like this now (not the most fashion forward)! He refuses to wear jeans and wears dress socks with his shorts.
What’s wrong with your computer screens people? This photo is clearly not photoshopped. All the shadows are exactly right. Even where the tightest part of the sock near his knee is squeezing his leg. You can SEE the INDENTION PEOPLE! COME ON!!
Yet another happy successful graduate of the Fred Mertz school of fashion design
Put him in white socks and a plaid shirt and you have my father.
Did anyone notice the third glass on the table? Are they inviting me for a drink? Should I take it???
Bloody mary for you, bloody mary for me and we’ll race to the third
The “socks” don’t even cover the entire width of the man’s leg, and there are places next to the socks that are clearly bad attempts to clean up/match the pixels. EVERYTHING else in the photo has dimension and color change due to light, shadows, etc. The socks don’t. They are clearly photoshopped in. The shoes aren’t. But someone didn’t think that short socks were awkward enough, so they did a bad job photoshopping in some socks to ‘heighten’ the awkwardness.
And those are screwdrivers, not bloody marys. The glasses have red and white stripes on them. The orange is the juice. Look through the clear part of the glass at the top, and you can see the surface of the orange juice.
No, the glasses have white and orange stripes. Look at how the orange/white stripes are identical between the three glasses. But the red stripes vary. The one in the guy’s hand has a bit of a red stripe above the top-most white stripe. The other glasses don’t have that.
The socks lack dimension because they are so dark they are sucking up all light that comes their way.
The red is the drink in the glass. All three have the red luquid. that is the red strip in the guys glass.
No, the sun hitting those polar bear-white thighs make the socks look dark. They’re actually grey.
Maybe they photoshoped the socks in at an attempt to make the picture more palatable! Nothing worse than short socks, buckle shoes and shorts. Cover your legs man for heaven’s sake!
Michelle, do you ever go by the name “Marney”?
Best response ever!
OMG! That’s hilarious. What a downer!!
Wow, Michelle, you sure know how to take the fun out of a great picture. You are not invited for cocktails!
Thanks for being a Debbie Downer, Michelle! Wahn-wahn.
I do what I can. 😀
lmao! wahn-wahn…. i was wondering how to spell that noise! as soon as i heard michelle’s response i did that noise out loud to myself!
They are drinking Bloody Mary’s
and you spent how long staring at this old fellow’s legs?
THIS LOOKS SHOPPED
I CAN TELL FROM SOME OF THE PIXELS AND FROM SEEING QUITE A FEW SHOPS IN MY TIME.
