Early boomer here..........'47.

Back in the early years, it was nothing to see someone hitchhiking.....and nothing to pick somebody up! Imagine!!

Walking back from high school football, we'd stop at the local "pharmacy" and catch a double dip ice cream cone....... 10 today find this inconceivable!

I was in high school English class when Kennedy was shot. Someone burst in the door and just shouted, "The President's been shot"! The concept was so unbelievable that kids actually laughed! It wasn't till a short time later I entered the locker room and saw my coaches crying, that the reality of what happened hit home......never will forget it.
