I was born in 1956. Your parents and I could sit and reminisce for hours.......black-and-white TV, rotary-dial phones, the closest thing to a computer was a slide rule
When the TV didn't work, you took the back off, removed the tubes, took them to the grocery store, tested them on the machine they had, bought a few new ones, put then back in, and the TV would work again.
Just about everyone could change a tire on a car, most back country roads didn't have speed limits, after Christmas you brought you new guns to school, and half the teachers brought theirs to show off........
My how things have changed!!
I actually think that you and my dad would get along really well. You remind me of him in some ways.
