    During the 60’s, the space program made us think that things were going to get better. The 60’s were better than the 30’s and 40’s.

    Well, obviously, it’s time to start making fun of the young guys doing whatever it is that young guys do. Like I would know anything about that.

    It’s not misremembering, for these guys. Fifty years ago was, in many ways, better than now. Fifty years ago, I was fifty years younger. Bullets bounced off; not so much now.

    Though things have improved in many areas. For example, if I had the same standards of health care my father did fifty years ago, I would undoubtedly now be dead for about ten years.

    I wonder why the sign on the door has the “open” side facing in, meaning the “closed” sign is facing out, when, clearly, the bar is open.

    Some days those memories are golden. Some days something less. The latter are the ones that can hurt.

    I knew I fit this category decades ago.

    I used to fly C-130 aircraft in the late 70’s and early 80’s. As a unit that supported Korea, we had the oldest aircraft in the fleet because we were “expendable” should the war restart. We were a “speed bump” to a North Korean advance. Our unit was expected to have a 75% casualty rate until the rest of the U. S. Military could mobilize into the theater.

    I got off active duty in 1982. I later joined the Air National Guard in a non-flying capacity. In 1995 I went to the National Guard Convention in Washington, DC. Lockheed had a display of a C-130 cockpit that was at least two generations ahead of the one I sat in.

    It was a “glass cockpit” and fully computerized. I hardly recognized anything in it. My comment was, “I remember when it took a pilot to fly airplanes and not a computer operator. They’ve taken all the fun out of flying.”

    In the ‘good old days’, we were young. We didn’t have to worry about paying the bills, taking care of young kids and old parents, saving money for college. We didn’t have to go to work, clean the house, take care of the garden, make the meals, plan and prepare for holidays and events, etc. We did some chores — when told; we went to school and Sunday School [or equivalent], and we played. We wandered around, climbed trees, built a clubhouse, swam in the pond, played pick-up ball, and returned home when it was suppertime. We had a lot of freedom to be young and pretty much carefree. That’s why we remember them as the good old days.

    ♫Some time about 25 years from now

    When we’ve all grown old from a-wonderin’ how

    We’ll all sit down at the city dump

    And talk about the goodle days

    You pass the joint and I’ll pass the wine

    A lot of good things comin’ down the line

    A lot of good things went down one time

    Back in the goodle days

    The goodle days are past and gone

    A lot of good people have done gone on

    That’s my life when I sing this song about

    Back in the goodle days♪

    It’s possible I might be prejudice, but in a lot of areas, those of us born in the 50’s got the last of the good times. Not on all points, but generally.
