Post Remember When
I was telling my Son about some of the things me and my friends would do when we were kids that now seem so strange to him.
Name something from your past that younger people just can't understand.

Searching for Soda Pop bottles at Construction Sites and along the roadside so we could turn in and get the deposit back.

Remember when…concert tickets cost from $3.50-$5.50 and you had to go to the local record store to buy them. They were always general admission, sit where you want, dance where you want and getting backstage was not unheard of. Yep, I stood onstage at an Elton John show just feet away from his piano at the Hollywood Sportatorium in 1973. And again backstage during an Alvin Lee show. Those were the days!

Local record stores...... Growing up there was a Sam Goody near my house. I used to love going there and just wandering the store, listening to what they were playing, checking out all the album covers / posters, & talking with the people that worked there (all hippieish music fans). Even if I had no money to buy, it was still a blast.

The look on my Sons face as I was explaining Pong and Atari to him was priceless.

The Black Light Room with all the Psycadelic Posters was always a favorite of mine.

"Flashback 1969" in the Melbourne AAA Indoor Flea Market has it all…Record albums, posters under black light and my brother Frank can tell you about his trek to Woodstock. Doesn’t take much for him to remember when…he is still living in the 70”s. LOL
