    My Grandma was 95 last week...she's at least one generation older than in that picture, more Frank Sinatra than the Beatles!

    Some of us are the grandparents of today. That's the kind of girl I married.

    My grandmother was born in 1906 and I kept telling her that she looked silly in those boots and mini skirt... !

    That is what is cool about that pic, it really is true! The women I dated in the late '60s/early '70s (when I was just out of high school) looked just like that. Long hair and minishirts were the style and I knew more than one who played and sang folk music on acoustic guitars.

    Now we are in our 60s and 70s and old and wrinkled.

    And one of the best things about being of that generation is that those values still have a place inside us. Peace and Love.

    1906? She could've been a flapper in the Roaring Twenties---short hair, short skirts, every bit as carefree as Sixties chicks. After the stodgy Victorian Era, things went wild!

    My grandma was a young woman when WWII was on.
    She was not a cool but a very brave and sorely afflicted person.
    As I know she liked traditional German melodies and some classic piano music. She wore a white kitchen gown during the week and a neat long skirt and a white blouse on sundays.
    There was nothing cool about her but she was the nicest and most modest person you can think of.

    I talked the other day to our drummer. We are both in our late 50ies.
    We agreed that there will be a great market in the very near future for Metal Bands playing the retirement homes.
    How cool is that?

    My grandma used to flirt with sailors and get money from them when she was 13 and 14....

    then she met my grandpa at 16 and chug a lugged beers with them! They ended up divorcing but She had a few men propose to her, buy her jewelry and one guy even died righting her a love letter ....Look at her now and she's a little old lady with a walker.

    When my son was discovering guitars at 13 years old, he asked the old lady next door if she had ever heard Jimi Hendrix. She said yes. She had. At Woodstock. From 25 feet away.

    Then she dug out an old photo album and showed him and she was a screaming hottie. One impressed young lad. He still talks about it. That was the day he realized we were all young once.

    I showed this to our granddaughters, it’s quite applicable. Grandma ain’t talking but the Mustang GT was white, go go boots were white and the hot pants were pink. And yep, Paul Revere and the Raiders.

    When I was a teenager I found a bunch of vintage pinup girl pictures in the storage closet. I put them up in my room and they looked cool...until my dad walked in and asked why I had pictures of my grandma all over the walls! I had no idea!
