Were Your Parents Awesome?
It's hard for some of us to think that there was a time when our parents were younger and were actually considered cool. But a new site is out to prove that wrong.
Just to be clear, the long-haired hippies in this photo are not my parents, but they were somebody's parents...somebody who (correctly) thought they were cool enough to be included in a blog I heard about on NPR, called MyParentsWereAwesome.com. I highly recommend giving it a visit - you'll be mesmerized by the many pages of photos submitted of people's parents usually before they became parents...and no era is spared. Some look like they come from the Victorian age! Here's a few favorites I quickly pulled:
The site has inspired me to get a scanner soon and upload some of my own family photos. And yes, your parents were awesome.
