Wasn't insulting at all. Batman was great! POW! Oh yeah, Star Trek taught me everything I needed to know.

I actually had a coon-skin cap when I was a kid. It wasn't the real thing I don't think. But it was a nice one as I recall, as replicas went. Unfortunately it ended up being trashed like all of my other toys. I was hard on my stuff when I was a kid.

My red cowboy hat was the cheaper department store kind and I wore it a lot rain or shine until it became a shapeless mass but the black one was an expensive one from a cowboy store in Texas I rarely wore it and mum sold it at a garage sale when I outgrew it.

My mother used to sew a lot of my clothes and when I was in 5th or 6th grade, she made me a pair of bell bottom pants out of a purple paisley print corduroy. She consulted with my older brother, who would have been 14 or 15, about the proper width of the bell at the bottom (the length of my shoe). I was tres chic at school!

i remember when gas was less than 50 cents a gallon my step dad owned a filling station lol remember calling gas stations that. And a snickers candy bar was 25 cents. Pop came in glass bottles. Your dad had an electric antenna outside the house and it would make a "chunk ca chunk" sound when he turned it to another position.
Singer songwriters like Cat Stevens and Gordon Lightfoot
Ike and Tina Turner and who could forget Ed Sullivan and the Beatles
I am a late boomer too, and i really identify with Gen Xers because my parents divorced when i was 8 and i had to step up and raise my 2 yr old brother, my mom moved us hundreds of miles away from our dad and we had to fend for ourselves when she wasn't home and that was often. I was a latch key kid. But i loved the life of being independent.
Remember the old record players that were a fold up case with a handle. and putting nickels on the arm so the record wouldn't skip. those were the days.
