The comments at YouTube are fun, too.


  1. Thanks for that. We sure have declined. Wow.

    1. LSP,
      I grew up in those "good ol' days." It wasn't a perfect time, but for me and many of my generation, it was a good time.

      PS: I love those cars!

  2. "every 10 years it seems like living in a different world." - Sums it up..thanks for the memories..

    1. Bunkerville,
      Change is inevitable. Change for the worse isn't inevitable, though.

  3. Yea, the contrast is very clear. Fists vs gus, love songs vs gangster/porn garbage, all the other stuff we all know about. Still good living to be had in the red states though.
    As far as I'm concerned, I can still live in my time and ignore the rest.

    1. Kid,
      I live in a blue state (Virginia). My neighborhood is safe -- except that over the past few months, the rate of burglaries has soared.

      I'm moving to a red state. In fact, my house, the last of the family "homesteads" has been on the market since March 17, a mere two weeks after Mr. AOW passed.

      This is not as sudden a decision as it seems: I've been trying to sell off and on since 2005. My neighbor is also selling. She started the ball rolling this time. The oppressive real-estate tax rates and petty-crime rates here are running us out! Both my neighbor and I are older women living alone, and we need less stress in our lives.
