Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll

WARNING: This is scary stuff.

My Aunt Florence, who is 80-something, sent me this photo, which took place at a Senior Center in Arizona. (Aunt F lives in Florida. She is not in the picture.)

Apparently, somebody's grandson laced the brownies she was baking with pot. She never noticed and brought them to the meeting, where the paper plates were licked clean. Everyone agreed that they were the best brownies she had ever made.

According to the police report, those senior hotties then ripped off their Sans-a-Belt pants and housedresses and tore up the place. They kept their hats on, though, as befitting dignified ladies and gentlemen.

It's good to know that the Bunny Hop is not dead.


Kevin Charnas said...


I'm jealous.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Aww, Kevin,

You don't have to be jealous. I'll send you brownies.

Pickled Olives said...

hmm. Not syre what to say to this. Laced Brownies had that effect?

I think I need to go and do a few sit ups...

heartinsanfrancisco said...


I told you it was scary.

Those brownies sure were good, though.

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

Pleeeeeease say that you are kidding! On the other hand, Mmmmmmmmmmmmm brownies!

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Lone Grey,

Kidding? About what, pray tell?

And you'd better show the proper respect to yer elders, young man, or there'll be no brownies for you.

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

the image is not suitable for tender eyes. Confucious never taught what to think when respected elders dance sans-clothing.

It also brings about unwelcome flashbacks of a trip to the public nudist beach in Brighton, U.K. Suffice to say that the beach is not a beach (all pebbles,rocks and no sand); the nudes were not Brazilian beach beauties either.

Anyway, squirrel is suitably chastised .......will do almost anything for brownies.

heartinsanfrancisco said...


Did you not read my disclaimer? This is not suitable fare for eyes of any age.

There is a nude beach near the Golden Gate Bridge that has the same shocking effect. No Brazilian beach beauties or studs there either.

I think perchance there is a goodly lesson here, though. Too many brownies doth the gnarly flab maketh.

Kevin said...

GAH!!! I'm blind!!!!

meno said...

This may be a function on MY age, but not all of these people look all that old.

heartinsanfrancisco said...


I'm sorry.


I'm REALLY sorry.

thethinker said...

I'm scarred for life....

I don't think I'll ever be able to look at my grandparents (or anybody else's) the same way again.

Bob said...

okay, that place is on my short-list for my retirement.

any place that can rock a conga line like that.......

and, uh, I'm kinda with Meno here - not everyone in that line looked as senior from me as they should.

mist1 said...

No wonder my grandma always wants a ride to the Senior Center.

furiousBall said...

you're going to burn my eyeballs out jail for that.

Oh, The Joys said...

Shake it Nudists!

heartinsanfrancisco said...


I can see how that would be.

When I realized that I kept averting my eyes from the picture, I naturally concluded that I had to share it with y'all.


Wooo hooo! I hear they're doing the limbo next.

They don't look ancient, just mostly out of shape.


Which one is she? Do you look like her?


Sorry about your eyeballs. And they're all rotting in jail now, where they belong. In orange jumpsuits.


But don't break it.

kim said...

I knew there was SOMETHING going on at my moms new retirement complex.... they are always having parties over there!

I cant wait to show this to her when I get there (shes allergic to computers) she will get a biggg laugh out of this :)

heartinsanfrancisco said...


Which one is your mom? I want her hat when she's tired of it.

Christina_the_wench said...

Well old age isn't looking that bad after all if this is the retirement home, I guess.

Ok, I really didn't just type that. God help me. ~cringes~

heartinsanfrancisco said...


Your secret is safe with me.

Cristin said... glad I don't work in an office right now LOL

velvet girl said...

LOL!!! Now I don't feel so bad about getting older.

Thank goodness it's not video. ;)


Lex said...

Ha!! That's where I'm sending mom and dad in few years.

heartinsanfrancisco said...


There are so many reasons to be glad of that.


A still photo is bad enough, thank you very much.


Such a dutiful daughter you are. They'll love it.

Bring hats.

Kate S said...

ROFL - fabulous, I love it!

Thanks for the nice comment on my story.

heartinsanfrancisco said...


Thanks for coming by!

Your story is great. I really enjoyed it.

Michael C said...

What the heck happened to bingo??

heartinsanfrancisco said...


Apparently it doesn't have the appeal of getting stoned and naked, doing a conga line. I can't imagine why.

JR's Thumbprints said...

I need some of those brownies to look at the picture. How else will they become "bar" beautiful to me?

Sven said...

My two aunts, uncle and grandmother live in AZ so I was a little scared by the picture but then I remembered, they don't wear hats.

Odat said...

I thought my nude days would be over once I became a senior citizen...there's still hope!!

heartinsanfrancisco said...


Some things just shouldn't be attempted without a good support system.


I bet you didn't know they smoked brownies either.


It's over when the fat lady stops dancing.

Just D said...

Happy Nude Valentines Day... or whatever.


Thailand Gal said...

ROTFL!!! Oh, that is funny!



Pendullum said...

I did not know that Kevin Charnas was visiting his grandmother in in Florida?

heartinsanfrancisco said...


Wait a minute.. I have to undress.

OK, happy nude Valentine's Day to you, too.


Hats off to 'em.


He was raised to share, the sweet boy.

Jocelyn said...

Like it takes hashbrownies to get that kind of behavior out of the seniors.

All I know is that I'm glad the pain from glaucoma is no longer bothering them.

heartinsanfrancisco said...


Yeah, but wait 'til the rheumatiz kicks in.

Dan said...

I'm ashamed to say this (really) but the one on the far left has an ass that I could really go for.

I'll never feel the same way when I drive past a Senior center ever again.

heartinsanfrancisco said...


As nearly as I can tell, ones ass doesn't change much. Here's hoping.

Lee said...

Make sure there's video when they do the limbo. Crikey!

heartinsanfrancisco said...


Oh, the mental image of naked elders doing the limbo with all their spare parts swinging -- I think I'm going blind.

katrice said...

My eyes! My eyes!

Someone is going to jail. Or hell.

heartinsanfrancisco said...


They are hardly mutually exclusive, you know.

I should have given you a blindfold. So sorry.

Ryane said...

HAHA. That is hilarious....good for them. Why should all the fun be over??

MsLittlePea said...

I am SHOCKED and have only one thing to say about that!
Were there any brownies left and can I have some?

jali said...

I'm proud of the crew! I hope that they use sunscreen - hats only protect so much.

Thanks for the smile this morning.

djn said...

Old people these days... I tell ya...

heartinsanfrancisco said...


It shouldn't. Maybe old age really IS all it's cracked up to be.


Sorry, hon. I got there first. Wheeeeeeee!!!!


Yep, all those places where the sun don't shine. (Well, didn't.)


You raise 'em up and they break your heart.

seventh sister said...

makes me think of a weding I went to in a nudist camp a long, kong time ago

seventh sister said...

that should read 'wedding'

roonie said...

You're totally serious? This is not a joke?

The Law Fairy said...

Woo hoo, shake it Gram and Gramps!

Seriously, if that's what getting old is, I may have to rethink this whole Live Fast Party Hard Die Young thing.

Sadly, the "Live Fast Party Hard" part actually means "sell your soul and best years to a law firm, prematurely aging yourself." Umm... at least they pay well?

heartinsanfrancisco said...


A nude wedding... that seems rife with possibilities. Cutting the cake, first dance, and where did the bride put her something borrowed and something blue?

But think of the money they saved on finery.


I think the question is whether the folks in the photo were serious. I am like Grandma Moses: I paint what I see.

Law Fairy,

Well, at least you'l be able to party hard in a really nice place when you get old.

Liz said...

Good thing they left the shoes on. Someone might have gotten a splinter from that floor. Also, I hear they'll be offering Brazilian waxes before the next brownie binge.

heartinsanfrancisco said...


I'd rather not see that picture.

Open Grove Claudia said...

Ok, that's hilarious. Good for them! At least we don't have a photo of senior citizen sex - ew.

heartinsanfrancisco said...


I refuse to go there. (Until I have to. If I don't die first.)

notfearingchange said...

them's some good looking seniors

Crankster said...

What the hell--if you're still that brave at that age, have at it!

Malnurtured Snay said...

Gah my EYES!

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Not Fearing,

And so brave, too.

Thanks for coming by.


Definitely. Life begins at 80. Or at least, by that point, you really shouldn't care what anyone thinks.


There was a candy dish with blinders right at the entrance to my blog. Sorry you missed it.

Judith said...

Id like to think that I would be up to those kinda japes when Im that old, Id be like 'so sue me'

heartinsanfrancisco said...


It doesn't look like anyone was getting hurt. (Although they may have felt some twinges the next day.)

Thanks for your visit! I just found your blog and it's great.
