tobr...don't you fret for Bill.
I would wager he has given gun safety classes
and knows more about guns than most.

Its not the gun....its the handler and Bill seems
very apt.

The prices on guns was humorous as was the 9cnt
for a loaf of bread.

Ah, yes, the old price of things... Tell us some of the prices that you remember. I remember getting a package of cigarettes while in the service for 10 cents!

Local lovers lane was called "The Point".
A hill overlooking the lake.
Cars lined up bumper to bumper .
Everyone knew everyone, small graduating
class.

Not too many "loose girls"....1962-1963
If they were and it was found out.....reputations
were ruined.
Lots of fogged windows though lol.

Listening to:
Dion-The Wanderer
Booker T- Green Onions
Beach Boys- Surfing USA
Elvis- Can't Help Falling In Love
The Drifters- Up On The Roof
Gene Pitney- Town Without Pity
Connie Francis- Don't Break The Heart

All that and just for a $1 worth of gas lol.
