    I'm not a hippyologist by any means. Missed it by about 10 years.
    My older sister was (and still likes to think of herself as a flowerchild emotionally).
    I think our world was just a little better place prior to hippydom.
    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

      My mom was a hippie. She wore the silly short dresses. Even when she was about 8 mos preggo. LMAO!! Now that is quite the funny picture. I still pick on her for that!!!

      I was too young to be a hippie...I was in jr high in the late 80's, meaning I was one of THOSE girls with the BIG hair and a huge crush on the New Kids on the Block.....God help my soul. :brick:


      Ready for the friggen season already!

        Topscribe was the original hippy. back in 1874 he wore a beard, almost unheard of in that time.


        I missed the hippy ages by alot. I guess I'd be generation X/Y.

        *insert chromosome joke here*


        If you take what I have to say seriously, then I'm embarrassed for you.

            On a side note, I'm glad I was too young during the mullet days to have one.

                While I've always been conservative in real life, I've been accused of being a hippie, owing to my beard (actually, a well trimmed Van Dyke).

                      I grew up in that era too, GEM!!!

                      I was the kid who wore the Iron Maiden & Metallica Shirts.
                      I sat in the back of the class and threw spitballs in the hair of the girls who sat in the first two rows talking about NKOTB.

                      I was kidding about the last sentence.........














                      No I wasn't.....but I think you're pretty cool NOW!!!!

                      Every year I would paint my face up like Gene Simmons for Halloween.

                      I wore black leather jackets and I had really big hair. Ripped jeans and boots.
                      Before I got my license, I'd have my mom drop me off at the movies and then sneak across the the street to the pool hall to shoot pool and smoke.

                      I sat in the back of the class and mocked the teachers.
                      I smoked in the parking lot before school. I drank during school.
                      I pulled fire alarms and I put plastic wrap on toilet seats.
                      My homework was always done. I never took a book home.
                      I made decent grades.

                      School was boring. It was in the country and their lives revolved around
                      basketball. Small minds who breed smaller minds. A town where things haven't changed much in the past 60 years. I made an impact, lol.

                      I was an advanced art student and when it came time for us to do our rendition of a famous piece, I chose "Whistler's mother". I did it and it looked exactly the same....except for a couple of things. One main difference was I'd given her a tongue...a really long, satanic tongue. I also put a couple of bloody hand prints on the wall behind her. The picture was put on the wall in the cafeteria. It stayed there for one day. I did it for shock value. It was funny. It was funny because anyone who knew me knew that I was of christian faith (ok, not devout).

                      However, everyone knew me. They knew I was the class clown and I got along with almost everyone.

                      I was into bad boys with dirty minds and fake ID's.


                      Then came college and all that fell away. My hair was flat and I dressed better. I moved out of that wicked, hateful little town and never looked back. Ok, so I would go back once in awhile just for kicks.

                      But hippies are funny to watch. They grow good weed. They don't hurt anyone.
                      They make life more entertaining.

                            I didn't get into the bad boys til I was in high school...then I went and did the worst thing possible....got hitched to one...and was significantly bad myself. :brick: Turned out terrible, but it sure was a fun ride.

                              And did you gals wear those big shoulder pad things that all girls wore in the 80's?

                              It would be scarey to look at girls that looked like they could beat you up.

                                No, but I did have ruffled shirts under a jacket, thigh high boots and the tighter the pants, the better.

                                I didn't do the whole shoulder pad thing.

                                Thank God.
