Farmdude, I'm trying to pretend, between the fading eyesight and bad back, that I am still as young as my kids. lmao Thanks for the slap in the face and reality check to bring thing back into focus. I remember all of those things, so at least I still have my memory. You were in the 1st grade when I peed in my 1st diaper.

I was very young in the 60's but some of it I remember, I also had a 62 Belvedere with the push button transmission. Always had to remember to use the "park" lever on hills or you would lose your car when you came out.

I had the push button shift on a 63 Dodge Dart I purchased from a police auction in the late 80's. Wish I still had it too. Not only that it was push button, but it had the 225 slant 6

During Woodstock my family was camping in the next town over from Bethel - a place called Woodbourne. We had come back to NY on leave from San Diego and couldn't understand why Route 17 AKA "The Quickway" was wall to wall bikes and micro-buses.Today the Bethel Woods Performing Arts center hosts headline acts from all over the place.

We had a push button tranny on my mom's Chrysler.

My very first ride was a 1968 VW "Fastback". My uncle owned a garage and got it on a garagemen's lien. He gave it to me as payment for pumping gas and sweeping up.

We didn't get a color TV until 1972.

TV Shows....we watched Bonanza, Gunsmoke, I Love Lucy, Leave it to Beaver, Dennis the Menace, Mr. Ed, I Dream of Jeannie, Gilligan's Island. Saturday's was Looney Tunes, The Cisco Kid and the Lone Ranger.

I do remember living on base and dreading seeing the Chaplain's car turning onto your street or worse riding bikes home from school and seeing it parked in front of a neighbor's house.

I don't know about better or simpler.... maybe just different.
