Didn’t recognise many of the US products or TV shows – but the music and films were Oh so familiar!

Thanks GM. I surely do remember those days. It’s a pity that kids today can’t grow up in a similar environment. I not only grew up in that simpler time but also in a small rural community with none of the big city problems or worries. Our parents turned us loose in the morning and if we didn’t make it home by dinner time it was “Oh well, he’s just having dinner at a friends.”. Nearly every boy that I knew never went anywhere (not even to school) without his pocket knife and no one ever even thought about using them for nefarious purposes, i.e., none of us ever stuck anyone with one. I could go on and on about this topic but I’m sure that I am already boring everyone. Those that grew up during this time already know everything that I could say and those that grew up at a later date don’t believe what I am saying anyway. LOL

I lived through all of it and remembered everything they showed. I wish I still had my 1957 Chevy Bel Air with its 283, four barrel carburetor and dual exhaust (power pack).

Kids today don’t now what they missed no drugs we danced to that fine music that we could undertand all the words it was all fun.
All we can do is remember and play all that fine music.

GMman get an A+++ for this report…....your teacher would be proud of you…........

There wasn’t a single thing on that video that I didn’t remember…..not a single thing…......poor, graduated from high school in 1959, in northern Minnesota.

Thanks, buddy, I forwarded that link to a bunch of people….....right on.



I remember riding my bike 14 miles out to a lake to go swimming with two of my friends….....there were places in town…...but we thought it would be fun, we knew friends with a cabin out there…....probably age 12….......riding down a highway. We got back for supper. I had checked with Mom, she thought it would be OK.

We never locked doors, unless we left town…....but then we left the back door unlocked so the neighbors could get in.

What happened to those days???

You can’t bore me talking about those days…..............that’s the time that formed me. Was just talking to my brother about those days, he is 5 years older….....sent him the link as well.
