Well, it would appear there are many of us who were born within a decade of each other. That would account for the attitudes of those from this website versus other sites.
Google has many times sent me to other websites with member boards where I quickly grew tired of the insults, put-downs, name-calling, etc. I've not seen even once any such behavior here. We've all mellowed in our middle age
I work exclusively with kids in their late teens and twenties. I enjoy it but I like the community here as I can plant my butt on my couch and actually relate to others without being called an old man. Ha! "I may be desperately but I ain't boring" - Pete Townsend
I'm sorry about your parents. Your mother was so young, as was your dad. Our histories are very similar as my mom died when she was 41 and two years later my father died and he was 62. I was 14 and 16 respectively when that happened. Isn't it amazing that after all these years you still miss them?
How old am I? Hmmm, don't remember but I do know that Wake Up Little Susie, Whole Lotta Shakin goin on, All Shook Up and Jailhouse Rock, and some dude named Buddy Holly we're all big the year I was born
Glad you are here and hope to see a lot of posts and photos from you
