Admin reply: I hope you found what you needed for your reunion Kathy. I know you will truly have fun. By the way who is old? We still are teenagers at heart aren't we?

Comments: Drop a Dime is not a 60's slang.
It's a 40's - 50's slang for call the cops.
Admin reply: If you had read the introduction of the slang terms you have seen that many of these terms came about before the 60s and continue through the sixties decade.

Comments: Hello. I am from Springfield Ohio originally. I loved reading about your history. It is so like mine. How blessd we were to have been in such a wonderful time. It is sad how the kids of today can not know that joy. I loved being on a road trip with you. Lol thank you for taking me along. Most of my family are still in Ohio. I came to Tx. Via Calif. Isn't life funny? Have family in Tx. Now too. I am in the Panhandle and others in southern part. I do miss Ohio and Calif. But not the winters. Lol. Life goes on no matter where we are. Family and God are the most important things in life. Hope you are blessed with love and family and friends. Stay safe n loved n blessed. Thank you for serving our country.
Admin reply: Definitely a simple and sometimes a complicated time but most who grew up during this time never regretted being part of the simple but turbulent sixties. Thank you for your comments, Janice especially from a fellow Buckeye.

Comments: Trying to find an old country song and wondering if you can help me out.. I believe the name of it is "Sticky Situation" or something like that.. can you help me out?? I don't know the singer but I do know he is a male. Thanks.
Admin reply: You are probably thinking of the 1979 hit by Moe Bandy "It's A Cheating Situation." I hope this helps.

Comments: Wow, this site brought back so many forgotten memories. I too remember my mom hanging clothes on the line every season, except, if it was really bad in the winter, she strung lines in the basement. I also jammed my arm in the wringer of our washer, lol. The washcloths in laundry soap boxes, and coffee cups in Quaker oatmeal boxes. Also, how about the Dino the dinosaur toy free with a fill-up at Sinclair gas stations, or the the tiny wienie whistle in every pack of Oscar Meyers (which would be out-lawed as a choking hazard now). Oh my gosh how I wish life was as sweet and simple now as it was then.
Admin reply: Thank your for your comments Delainey. It is a different and more complicated time we live in now. Definitely not as simple.

Comments: I was raised in Los Angeles, 1964 HS grad, was there for the Watts Riots, traveled the world, courtesy of the US Navy, and moved back just in time for the Rodney King Riots. Now living in a small town in Nevada.
This is a great site. I love the music and reconnecting with some of my own history. Two song suggestions for your Instrumental Jukebox: 1) Sleepwalk; 2) Wheels.
God bless you for putting this site up and maintaining it.
Admin reply: Thank you Tom for your comments. I can't believe I left those two off the playlist. I will add them as soon as time allows me.

Comments: Just discovered the site...love it...added to my favourites list....my wife's wondering what I've been up to all ady
Admin reply: Glad you found us. My wife wonders what I do all day as well.
Comments: What an Ohio treasure! I grew up predominately in Chillicothe, but my family also lived in Circleville for a few years in the 1970's, always attending what I thought was the world-famous Pumpkin Show! Always loved the city's orange street lights! Many fond memories...thanks for bringing them back to my remembrance! My family lived at 524 Tower Court, and the memories of the Saturday-night Tractor pulls also resonate... Wow, those were great times!
Admin reply: Thank you Belinda for finding us and for sharing your memories.
