…do they issue the standard grandpa cardigan. There are a lot of hearing aid and catheter commercials on the show I’m looking at right now. It seems to be standard issue for the actors. Just wondering how close I am.
+1 Same experience here too. I have not even heard the term “cardigan” for the at least a few decades. My 92 year old dad might still have one for going out and painting the town red.I’m 71. I’m a grandpa. The last time I had a sweater with buttons was in junior high school. That would place it 1964 or before. The last grandpa cardigan I recall seeing was on Mr. Rogers.
I inherited my dad's cardigan and flat cap after he died....
in a way, I became him, as an elder..... and get to wear the uniform..
If you remember the recent selfie reveal thread.....we are all variations on the same theme.....of ageing!As we age, we all start to look alike! Ever notice when you are out and about, when you see a group of old guys, it's like one of those shell games, if you move 'em around quickly, you'd be hard pressed to guess which one was which.
