Well, we made it.  We came through the Cuban missile crisis, assassinations of John, Bobby, and Martin, and the resignation of Nixon.  We witnessed, be it most of us from a distance, Woodstock and landing on the moon.  We have come a long way, from long hair with flowers in it to $15 razor cuts and flowers in gardens of our middle class homes.

Drop out and change the world attitudes have metamorphosed into concerns for health, wealth, and the grandkids.  We are senior citizens, but like it was with the rest of our life, we want to and will live the remainder with a flare.

We are in our 60s, but still 60s folk.
