If you know me at all, you know I love everything about the 60's. I was in grade school and junior high in the late 60's and high school in the early 70's. Yes, I am old! There was never a more exciting time and I relish all the memories. I loved the fashion, the music, the shows, everything. I think I own and have read every book on the 60's and have seen every documentary or show on the subject. Here is my collection of books and mind you I have given some to the library.
I am very glad to have been growing up in the late 60's and early 70's. I loved my mini skirts with fish nets , high waisted, big leg jeans. I loved my maxi dresses and chokers and head bands and mocassins. I loved that my girlfriend Rita and I would sit and listen to the radio and try to write down the words as fast as we could, to the lastest hits. We only had 2 radio stations where I lived WKY in the day and KOMA at night. We would save our dollar and go to TG & Y to get the latest 45, then stack them 10 high on our record player and play them all night! This is my 6th grade class float. Now this is the 1st float we had ever done and we didn't quite have the hang of it!
I feel a little sorry for people who didn't get to go through that time frame, but I;m sure everyone says that about when they grew up. My mom will swear there was never a better time than the 50's!
Much love, Cheri
