    Your mom is a smoke show and your dad definitely poisoned a few foreign nationals with polonium.

    Well, I was roughly their age in 1988, and even then my own parents (1960’s teenage hippy youth) have photographs that are even far-cooler than I was in the 1980’s!

    I guess each generation since the 1960’s has been getting less and less cool!?

    1960’s was peak Western Civilization hipness, and it’s been steadily downhill ever since.

    Really, its the bird that caught my eye.

    Do they still have it?

    And I ask because my bird from 1985, who was 7 when I got him, just passed a couple yrs ago.

    They live a loooooong time.

    I’m pretty sure Warren Demartini of Ratt used to wear the same shirt as your dad in concert. I used to be pretty into Ratt in 1984. Warren Demartini was a badass.

    I graduated high school in 1976. These short shorts for very common in sports and became mainstream in the 80s.
    I love men’s legs and miss seeing them.
