The BIG 40 here! 41 next April. So that you kids can put that into perspective, here are what my early memories are of.
*I remember the Watergate hearings on TV. ( I know some of you kids are thinking, Watergate, wasn,t that that really bad movie Kevin Costner made?).
*Also, my first boy-hood hero was none other than the Late, Great Evel Knievel.
*I remember when gas smelled as good as laquer thinner. When you could leave gas in your snowmobile all summer and it would still run great the next winter.
* And I remember that almost all new cars came with AM radio only. If you had money, you had AM / 8 track. ( Anyone else remember how to take apart and re-wind an 8 track after it wound itself too tight?
Oh, and if you were into hi-end audio equipment, you had a reel to reel tape deck.
*And lastly, I remember when companies with American names were actually American owned. (Honest, they really were American owned!)
