    Ooooooo so this is what santa and Mrs Claws get up too during their annual break from making and delivering toys………….. Childhood dreams now shattered :O !!!!

  3. Ennie says:

    Oh, to be old and relaxed. This attitude is what I aspire to. But not nekkid!

    *find a happy place Snowrider….find a happy place*

    Is the “W” from grandma means she’s like a west coast gangsta hyppi? If so, what is the meaning of the $70 hair cut ? Weird

  6. JerseyPam says:

    I’m wondering what the nude woman in the background had going on down there. Her nether region is blurred while her saggy breasts are exposed, and the man’s acorn is peeking out at the sun. The censor must have figured, “why bother blurring?”

    Yep … zoomed in, I’ll admit it.

    • Bec says:

      omg, there is a nude woman in the background!

    • CarrieM says:

      This cracks me up. I did the same thing, and wondered the same thing! Thank you, JerseyPam, for giving me the courage to admit that I, too, zoom in on photos of half-pixillated geriatric nudists.

  7. Goofball says:

    I am just thankful that he is wearing that tank top and not her….if she was wearing it, of course she is bra-less…we would have to see her ” Hangy-down things” :)

  8. christy says:

    i think the man goes pantless too often… his legs are very tan..

  9. Ashley whetham says:

    I live in vancouver, and we have a glorious nude beach called Wreck beach. Theres tons of guys that walk around wearing shirts and no pants. We call them -Shirt Cockers-

    I think I’ve seen them in Woodstock, NY recently. They still walk the streets barefoot and play music on park benches. Such a sight to see in person! One had frayed cut-off old blue jean shorts and a tie died tee shirt with hair down to his butt. The last 5 inches of his hair was dark and it gradually went gray to white around his neck up to his head which was balding on top and whatever was there was white! I believe these people never left after the concert in 1969. I think they live in the park!

    • ScoutC says:

      Kinda like those Japanese soldiers who were hidden in the forests and caves and never heard that WWII had ended and were still being found years afterward.

  11. yok says:

    Her old lady helmet hair is the most awkward part of this photo. It doesn’t fit in with the rest of the vibe.

  12. Lucythehippienextdoor says:

    “dye ’til you die”

  13. carol says:

    I just noticed that though the guy is pretty scruffy, the woman actually looks like she made an effort. She rolled and fixed her hair, and is wearing spiffy looking shoes. Maybe she just came from church. She changed clothes real quick and skedaddled right on over to the love-in. Ha!

  14. cranky says:

    Does this outfit make me look hippy?

  15. Maryann says:

    Too funny, true hippies glad they haven’t lost the freedom and true spirit of what a hippie was.

  16. Dang! I don’t know many guys that age who are in such good shape. Nice legs, there, dude. Still, I appreciate the fact that he is wearing a “tunic,” as I’m not sure I want to know more about what kind of shape he’s in. *ahem*

  17. I love this. I so hope that when the Mr. and I are this age, we are equally blase about any nudist fests we attend. And that he wears shorts.

  18. Amy says:

    Aw, maybe they aren’t centerfold material but how many of us are? They look relaxed and happy…rock on, Grandma and Grandpa!

  19. tracylee says:

    Could be a typical day at the Oregon Country Fair outside of Eugene! Never been, but I’ve heard plenty about it.

  20. Joanne says:

    Aunt Carol and Uncle Bob met 40 years ago at Woodstock! While celebrating the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, they decided that this should be their Christmas card for 2009! Not everyone was amused!

  21. Kelly says:

    It’s kind of cute :$

  22. PatientVengeance says:

    I’m so glad that Grandpa didn’t raise his hands up to float those peace signs. Of course for a man his age, I’m glad he’s not sagging below the shirt to begin with!

  23. Hanz says:

    Epic beard man.

  24. PissedChef says:


  25. Annette says:

    I love it!! Keep on rockin’ in the free world.

  26. Freckles says:

    This is your Grandma and Grandpa.
    This is your Grandma and Grandpa on drugs.

    Any questions?

  27. john says:

    where’s the band camp flute one??

  28. PJSaintOurs says:

    It’s the Summer of Love.

  29. eddie says:

    Oh no! Is that Uncle Bob and Aunt Jill???

  30. Laura says:

    I just screamed a little in my seat when at the sight of this picture.
    And every time I scroll back up brings out another little wail. D: !!

  31. Tim S says:

    Mom? Dad?

    • ScoutC says:

      No, it’s Marney (& Mr. Marney) after Amy Misto brought the regulation silver palate recipe pumpkin pie AND her OWN apple pie recipe, featuring secret herbs, to Thanksgiving dinner.

  32. JerseyPam says:

    Original Broadway cast of “Hair” revival? Looks like they’re setting up the final scene in the background, maybe the two in front are the stars.

  33. peg says:

    uh, woodstock re-enacted by what’s left of the original participants? Where’s the mud?

  34. Kit says:

    Any typical day at Folly Beach, SC :)

  35. Chargerfan says:

    How many fingers does that lady have?

    • Laura says:

      That would be the old guy’s hand reaching behind her.
      It took me a minute looking at it to figure that one out, too!

    • CarrieM says:

      Of all the interesting things going on in this picture, that was the first thing that bothered me, and it bothered me A LOT until I figured it out.

  36. Mainer says:

    Oh, loosen up, guys!

  37. francie pants says:

    I think this is Grandma and Grandpa that go to fests and rainbow gatherings and have a soup kitchen for the lot kids……. Nothing awkward about these two. Hope I’m that fit when I’m their age.

  38. HeatherW says:

    Dude, where’s my pants?

  39. Cori says:

    This is when you REALLY wish that LOVE TRULY WAS BLIND…

  40. ScoutC says:

    Maybe it’s just a bad trip and it will go away…

  41. centavo71 says:

    Oh aren’t they a darlin’ couple!

  42. Mrs S says:

    no no no no no no no no no no no no no wrong

  43. heather says:

    that’s the sweetest picture ever.

  44. Lynne says:

    I reeeeaaly hope that he has on some very short shorts. otherwise, ewwwwwww.

    • Intentional Delusion says:

      I choose to believe he’s wearing a Speedo. Yeah, that’s it. He’s wearing a tight swimsuit is all.

  45. Me says:

    I’m pretty sure that most of the people in the background don’t even have tops on, let alone bottoms.

    • Dee says:

      Ya the woman in the background has sagging raisinettes. Not very attractive and way too small to expose. I’ve always believed that if you have something to show worth looking at then by all means go ahead… but this?! By the way at NY State beaches it is legal to go topless. Not many do but this is what you will see at the beaches for those that do expose themselves! I’ve yet to see anyone with a DD cup go topless at a NY State beach. It would probably make the 6pm news!

      • Miffy says:

        But who decides what is good enough or big enough to show? If you want to show it off, do it. Those who don’t like it can always look away.

        • CarrieM says:

          I believe that’s the AFP slogan: “If you want to show it off, do it. Those who don’t like it can always look away.”

        • Dee says:

          Miffy, Miffy, Miffy… You must be “miffed?” What exactly do you usually see in sexy movies & magazines? Saggy raisinettes? The perky voluptuous well endowed traditionally have been the most desired. I have yet to ever hear a man say, “oh her breasts are too big!” No one has to decide on anything… People do what they want just as you see in this picture!

      • Smiley says:

        You’ve clearly given this a lot of thought, Dee.

  46. Carrie says:

    I think these two are actually overdressed for the occasion. Sadly, I looked in the background and it looks like a nudist picnic – there’s even a strategically blurred out spot! I wish I could un-see that…

    • Mic C says:

      LOL. Yes, Grandma is overdressed. She is a bit too old to be a flower child, so I wonder what she was doing during the 60′s.

      • back in the day says:

        probably, she was *in it* back in the 60s, like a lot of people you would NEVER imagine … NEVER, NEVER, NEVER ….. just cuz they look like *suits* today and go to church and *choose the right,* does not mean they always did …. just ask your parents, your grandparents, etc ….

  47. Kathy says:

    Soooo many things wrong with this picture!

  48. Jill says:

    Um, the couple over the tye-died lady’s shoulder and buck nekkid.
