Comments: Hi Carl,
For some time now I've been reading through your guest book, some of the entries brought a warm smile to my face while other brought tears to my eyes,
I have two question I like to ask you, beside the family you where raised in "what is the one thing you miss most about the 60s and why?" second " what is the one thing you do not miss about the 60s and why?" Thanks Carl,
Admin reply: Really difficult to answer those questions Drew but I have had some time to think about it. The sixties was a more simpler time. What I miss most about the 60s was growing up with the friends we had back then. I don't believe in any other time in my life and probably most folks' life do we have any closer friends then when we were at that young age. But those friendships slowly evaporate as we age and go our own ways, start families and careers. We do develop new relationships throughout our lives but they just don't compare. I have remained friends throughout the years with my best friend Ron. We get together still today talk about those days with laughter and fondness.
We live in a country with free speech which I understand and defended while serving my country but what I don't miss or didn't care for was the treatment many of us Vietnam Vets received upon our return from Southeast Asia. I was spat upon in the Columbus Ohio airport upon my return by a hippie chick and I still see her vividly today. I am sure she did not understand we were called upon to do a job without much choice. That incident was that the hardest for me to accept growing up in the sixties.

Comments: Nice site, I was born in '65.
On your list of 60's shows, did I miss The Mod Squad and The Monkees?
Admin reply: The Monkees show has been completed but not yet uploaded to the television of the 60s page.It will go up this Friday. The Mod Squad began its run on TV during the 1968-1969 season so it actually was only shown for one TV season during the 60s. It ran until 1973. Thank you for stopping by Bobbi.

Comments: I enjoyed the '60s - first 2 years in college - the next 4 in 'NAM - and the rest trying to forget 'NAM
Some great music at that time - I experienced the 'hippie movement in SF, CAL - - it was a time when you could leave home for a week, leave your doors unlocked, and find everything as it was when you left. kids were not afraid to walk to the store or movie alone.
I am 70 years old and would LOVE to have the 60s mentality to return to the entire world. it would be a nuch greater place to live in and for our children and grand children.
Admin reply: Thank you for sharing your memories of the 60s Sarge and for your service. My goodness 4 years in 'Nam! Welcome home brother,
