Cool nice link

my Mom would set up a tv table with my lunch on it

ty for sharing the link. It brought a tear to my eye but was at the same time making me smile. Nice reflection
of memories and changes thru life.

* and I really shed a tear when I saw the "1960 vette"!

I was born in the 60s but darn if I can remember Kimba....I was still pretty young when the 70s rolled around. I do remember watching Jonny Quest though...

That was good da jammer and I remember all of those good ol’ days. Best times were dances in the church basement or at the school. Everyone brought their favorite 45s and there never was any trouble, everyone enjoyed themselves and had fun. Small home towns were great.

We used to call those dances "sock hops" because we had to take off our shoes in the school gym

I must admit to probably being the eldest 'peep' on this forum. In 1965 I was the Head bookkeeper for a university in St. Louis. What an experience! During this time I guess I can also admit to being a part of that generation. I was just young enough to feel compatible with the students. Those days were the 'bra-burning' days. Volkswagon vans with psychedelic colours and themes all over them. Guys with long hair for the first time. The campus ROTC was burned down and we couldn't get to our jobs for a few hours.

You still used the word 'gay' to describe a fun event or fun person. Anything but skirts or dresses for females was frowned on by management in most places. Ah...panty hose, what a thrill. Pointy toed shoes...that later we all paid for by experiencing 'hammer toes, deformed big toes, etc.

And don't forget 'wigs'. Most of us had at least two. One in that 'flip' style and one in an 'updo' or French roll. Penny loafers..had to really put a penny in the slot on the top of the shoe. Oh, and let's not forget...Polyester Pant suits for women in pastel colours, no less! Pony tails, both guys and gals. Still able to sit in a restaurant and put nickels in the juke box extension right in your booth. And 'drive-in theatres...hmmmm, won't go there...I could go on and on...but later

Much more...the variety of music was, IMHO, at the greatest. Still had ballads, some of our parents music and thanks to Elvis and the Beatles, now had our own music. Can you imagine going from Perry Como, Nat King Cole, Dave Brubeck to Bob Dylan? As the video said...it truly was the beginning of the end of the innocent era...how sad in many ways. Thanks da jammer....sigh, sigh.

That was fun!

After being reminded that was the advent of acid rock, I now understand why music was never my forte.

Was anyone else surprised to see that teachers back then made higher than average salary?

The younger generation will never understand why us old fogies feel sorry for them. It's sad that the 60s were "truly the beginning of the end of the innocent era." I fondly recall roaming far and wide , and people today are afraid to leave their yards. Not even the parents of today's young people remember the age of innocence. Yes, many things have improved since then, but I think I'd rather have the innocence back.

Thanks da! Brings back the best memories of growing up in both the 50's and the 60's! I graduated high school in 1963and wouldn't have traded my generation for anything! Best cars, music, clothes, dances, tv shows...etc., etc., etc.

Our priority going to school was not worrying if anyone had a gun...our priorities were: what we wore (had to have saddle shoes!); our hair, having a crush on somebody, who was dating who, did we get our homework done?, did we study for the test?, did we have a date for Friday or Saturday night?...just enjoying life and being kids. Oh my, and staying off the senior lawn if we were sophs or jrs!

Loved our fun times at the beach, crusing, going to parties....a great time!

Oh, and it was back then that we really needed VCRs or Tivo! Soooo many great shows on tv! Now I could give a hoot less if I even own a tv.

Thanks again for the memories!

Seniors had their own lawn of grass that they took care of and no one could walk on it unless you were a senior?? I've never heard of that...is that what it was??
