You can remember waking up to fresh bottles of milk on the porch. Standing to attention every morning in school with your hand over your heart saying the pledge of alleigance (one nation under God) without the controversy. Bobby socks and penny loafers.Freedom to play outside until the street lights came on , without my parents being worried about predators taking me.Cars without airconditioning, bench seats in the front and riding without a seat belt!

When you remember telephones that you had to pick the receiver up and ask the operator to 

dial the number.

If you had posters of The Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin.

I really liked the statements You made.That pretty much sums every thing up for that era.There was a lot to absorb during those years.
