Almost immediately I realized two things:
- In the 1970's, I was ages 5 (at the very start), through 15 (at the very end). While I remember them very well, of course it was a simpler time, duh, I was a friggin' kid.
- It wasn't all that better a time in the world, inflation sucked back then, the economy had hit a rough patch, interest rates were at record highs, and we were ending a major war (Vietnam) as well as about to get into another situation with Iran (remember the hostage crisis?)
And with that, I am going to bed, goodnight Gracie!
