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. ♥♥♥

  3. Wonderful and funny haikus!!

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. Hello there.
