20 Times People Were Blinded By The Coolness Of Their Grandparents


       

Previously we showed pictures of parents who were cool during their younger days. We’ve gone even further and now present you with pictures of super-cool grandparents!

Compiled by FeedFond, check out these grandparents being super smooth in their heyday. See these grandmas chilling with Ernest Hemingway and modeling Volvos in the 1950s to grandfathers sledding through Antarctica, pulling off motorbike stunts, and even playing with their pet polar bears.

#12 This is my crazy grandfather. Hands down, the funniest old coot that’s ever existed. On his deathbed, he told us (his grandkids) “Don’t be cheap. Spend 25 cents and buy the paper. The Times promised me a big spread.” He worked as a photographer for the LA Times for 50+ years and had many famous photos, including the first published photo of an atomic bomb explosion. He was a man of many stories and an unforgettable sense of humor. After laying his wife and two sons to rest, he stayed strong and kept his spirit high. He battled prostate cancer for 20+ years and lived to see his 92nd birthday and his great-grandchildren. RIP Grandpa
