I'm in my last days of being 64. Five of my coworkers are young enough to be my grandkids. All the rest, including my boss, are young enough to be my kids.

Do they respect the wisdom of my years?? Yeah, right.



Our first home phone was a party line - rotary dial. The TV was a black-and-white portable on a rickety wheeled stand with a rabbit ears antenna - if we were lucky, we could get about 6 channels. No one we knew had central air, and very few had window air conditioners. Gas was around 25 a gallon. My allowance was 10 a week, but it went up to 25 as I took on more chores.

Good times, good times...
