Come on baby
Let's do the Twist and Mashed Potato
Who needs sleep?
~~~~~~
We were so cool
Thinking we were sophisticated
Doing the Monkey?
~~~~~
Awkward teen years
Thinking the worst of ourselves
We were just growing wings to fly
~~~~~

The 60s were something else. I had a good time in the late 60s. I graduated high school in 1969.

Have a fabulous day. ♥♥♥

They say if you remember the 60's you weren't there! I was and that just about sums up the best years of my life!

Since i was born in '63, by the time i realized what was going on, it was over! Oh, well, i do remember a few things that made a big impression, especially the music.

The youngsters of old were boisterous but not wild. They were lucky the drug scene wasn't there! Nicely Kathe!
