Every so often I get a better appreciation for the way the fellow felt.
It's amazing how many people are too young to have experienced the 60s-70s.
It's enough to make a guy feel old! <sigh>

young forever.  There obviously in their mid-20's, but they're still on their
skateboards and bicycles.  Go figure! :)
