True story...

 

My dad and his wife (my stepmom) came to live with us 2 weeks ago. She has dementia, is incontinent, and is in a wheelchair. Long story short...I have long hair that I tend to wear in a braid - just makes more sense when doing housework, taking care of her....and, of course....WORKING. You know, the kind of work you get paid to do like on Upwork. But I digress....

So there I was in my shorts, t-shirt (it is summer here), and braid the other morning, giving her a bed bath and getting her ready for the day. My braid flips over my shoulder and she grabs a hold of it...pulls me closer....and whispers.. "I also used to be a hippy...."

It did/does. My Mom died when she was in her 40's...Stepmom has loved Dad and taken care of him for 28 yrs. She also raised my brother (huge age gap between the two of us). So I will eternally be thankful to her for becoming the new light of his and baby bro's lives.

 Is that really your photo, Virginia?

Of course it's my photo. It never occured to me you'd think otherwise. Here's the photo where it lives under a magnet on my embarrassingly messy-magneted refridgerator.

 

When I saw the photo you posted, I was reminded of this photo because it's a favorite. Yes, Ravindra, I was once young and my now-white hair black - as I said, those were the days.

Note the photo of the cool renticular cloud that looked like a flying saucer ... it hovered over Grand Lake (where I lived at the time) all day long without moving.

 

Let me know if you want any info about the two okras under the VW magnet. Smiley Happy

Definitely not as good or as on-point as Virginia's photo... But it's as close to "hippie" as farm kids get. (The sorority T-shirt wasn't mine.)IJL with a heifer.jpg

Janean, unless that cow had a name, I'm guessing you weren't one of those d__m hippy vegetarians!  Smiley Happy
