Another natal day done.

To a certain extent, it's hard to believe I've made it this far.

After all, when I was born, Eisenhower was still in office.  The Space Race had just started.  There were only three networks, CBS, NBC and ABC.  Phones were rotary dials.  Flying wasn't the common way of getting there, nor was the car, but the train.  Cameras still used film.  Your radio only picked up AM, maybe shortwave.  Televisions were in black and white.  Movies were the big events for the entire family.  Air conditioning was a rarity at home, maybe a single window unit in the living room.  Rock and roll was still in the early days, the Beatles weren't even a thought.  Cuba wasn't under Castro.  The Soviet Union was the big threat.  Vietnam was just a place in Asia we weren't involved in much.  Calling long distance meant calling the operator first.  Pen pals meant writing a letter, putting a stamp on it and dropping it in a mail box.  In school, you had Future Farmers of America and Future Homemakers of America.

There's more, I'm sure...

@WHEE!

Definitely an old wolf. Starting to feel my age occasionally. *sigh* Ah well...

Congratulations on another orbit around the sun! :)

Now, if this were the old Beastie Board, we would have to commence with the Nippings and Whappings. ;)

Joyeux anniversaire mon vieux! :D
I think Vietnam was still called Indochina when you was born. :)

Nah, by the time I was born Vietnam was partitioned already.
