I wish I had a photograph of my class with all of us including the Catholic nun in traditional habit crouched under our desks.

What an interesting thread... I had forgotten about those practice sessions.

Oh yes, I wore saddle shoes and penny loafers.
And there were the hand cranked car windows.

I do remember Lawrence Welk - and loved The Lenon Sisters, those adorable little girls! A one and a two and uh...

an accordian solo!

On second thought, I'm thinking we do not so much create our own lives as we are created by what happens to us and those we love.

They say, there is always a choice - but I'm not so sure there really is.

Haha ... I'm not a Boomer (Gen Xer here), but Joe, your comment about cell phones reminded me of something. Last year I was driving along the Wyoming-Montana border near Yellowstone. My 9-year-old daughter had my cell phone out trying to call someone, and was getting frustrated that she couldn't get through. I told her that that area did not have cell phone service, and she asked me what the people did when they needed to call someone. I replied that they have to use a land line. Her response: "What's a land line?" LOL!

As for myself ... I'm old enough to remember Saturday morning cartoons, "Pac Man Fever," and the urban legend that Pop Rocks killed Mikey the Life cereal kid. ;)
