"Alls was great in the 50's and up till about 1963 when the Beatles, free love and hippies came on the scene." Then again, Pontiac came out with the GTO in 1964!!!! (Viet Nam, the draft, assassinations, and the Civil Rights movement certainly had an impact.) * https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Igo...

If you aint feelin' good by now, you might need a new addiction, an older woman (Erma Bombeck?), a different hairstyle (maybe just a cocked hat), sarsaparilla, the book of Proverbs, a deck of cards, bike ride, two hour bath, adopt-a-pet, or a Richard Dryfus movie re-run. Me? I'd go hit the used book store or take a kid fishin' along a rocky point/dam (use worm, single hook, and bobber) and it's all good as long as there's a slight breeze to keep the flies & skeeters away. If it's a perfect blue bird day, settle for the water park, horse farm, or bowling alley. That'd be a ballfield or skating rink back in the day, or hangin' in the tree house.

Turn of the Century Contestants
* Set it free https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6-... * Dream your dream, then form a plan and DO something about it!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0I...
* Wild Horses will try to drag you away...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJI...
* Think you've got it hard?~? Remember the days gone by: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKe...

So, the next time someone tries to tell you that the latest thing is the greatest thing ever, forget it. The best days are behind us, but good times are still ahead. (LeBronze fans need to hear that.)

Who said...? "The greatness of a man can always be measured by his willingness to be kind" (...especially helpful to those who cannot return the favor).
