    Now THIS is my problem - this is not JUST a part of my memories, it is my foundation of existence - I wanna go back to this time - it is my comfort zone. How many of you feel that way? and PROUD of it!

    Me too! I'm old enough to remember all of the 50s and 60s. I still listen to 50s and 60s music in my car. Makes my married kids crazy.

    I am with you all the way. If we could go back to those days right now, it would cure America's current problems. Those were the best of times! If you didn't grow up in that time period you can't understand...and don't know what you missed.

    :-D

    I have to agree. Those were wonderful times. My parents could take my little sis and I downtown, drop us off, and let us spend the day there. I can't even let my DGD out of my sight in my neighborhood now

    It sad to think that he is right the 60's ended our innocence We can Never go back to those times. I think the start of it all was the assasination of President Kennedy.

    There are some things I don't miss about that time period.

    I do love the music though. I think there was more originality then . Everyone didn't sound the same. And I can still sing along with the songs . LOL NOt that anyone wants to hear that even the dog leaves the room .

    I was not allowed to watch television much when I was a kid unless it was my grandparents programs so I missed a lot of what everyone else was watching.
    I graduated high school in 70 and sadly missed Woodstock altogether. I wish I had just went...

    If we could keep the good stuff and throw out the bad.
    Thanks for the memories though
    Hmm I wonder where my 8 tracks are..... lol

    Are you familiar with retrorenovation.com? It's a blog exactly for people like you--who buy mid-century homes and want to preserve them as they were originally built. You might get some good ideas or resources for materials there. :)

    I'm a 1980 model, but I have always loved the music of the 60's. When my classmates were swooning over New Kids On The Block, I was listening to the Beach Boys. My mom always told me I was born about 30 years too late. ;)

    I'm among the original "baby boomer" group born in 1946. Loved the era I grew up in (for the most part). My grandchild will never know the freedom and innocence we experienced....too much information overload for everyone these days.

    LOVE IT - I was born in 1963 but my uncle was only 18 when I was born so experienced all of it through him. He is the one that introduced me to the Beatles - a life long love.

    Thanks for the link.

    I guess you can count me in as one of those who miss certain aspects of the good, old days. Can't help but sing along when I hear one of the oldies but goodies on the radio. I think they're the only songs I actually know the words to. Songs these days don't seem to have understandable lyrics. I will admit though, they really make me face my mortality. Can't believe I'm one of the "old" folks now.

    Thanks for sharing this link. What a great overview of that time period! It brought back so many memories and made me smile. Am going to pass this along to my son.

    I don't feel stuck in the 60's. I have noticed that I often feel bombarded with sensory overload and need to retreat to a quieter place to "dig in the dirt", make bread, knit, sew or quilt. I do have The Beatles on my iPod. :D

    I graduated HS in 62 and remember those years well. When my DH isn't in the car, the radio is switched to FM and the best Golden Oldies the world has ever known.

    I find it funny that they've been making commercials using that music for years....the kids and grands are amazed I know the words to the songs. LOL

    Thank you for the stroll down memory lane. The sixties were the last "happy times" I remember of my family. After fighting over the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights Movement, my parents were divorced by the mid-seventies, I was sent away from what little home was left, and the direction of my life changed forever.

    I don't know that I wish to return to that time, except for the happiness and security I knew as a child then.

    I still like the music but would never go back to the 60's. I remember too vividly the VietNam War. My brother and husband were there and I will never forget taking them to the airport and our mothers's faces when the plane took off. I remember the news on the TV each night and the weekly get-togethers with my Mother to bake cookies and send the care packages to my brother who was out in the field. No, I live in today and take the lumps where they fall. I am very grateful for what I have now.

    I was born in Mid 1961! While I was not GROWING UP during the 60's I still LOVE the movies, the music and the cars from that era!
    The 70's were pretty good too, but not like the 60's!
