Subject: RE: If You Were There...The Sixties
you've probably done too much teaching!!

The most significant thing I remember from the 60's - the lady down the street sent a sympathy card to Mrs Kennedy & eventually received a Returned Thanks card signed by her!! I don't remember JFK's death, the card was a far more important event in the life of an 11 year old.

I sent most of the decade was spent in High School (64-69) & the nearest we got to the swinging 60s was one of the boys tried to smuggle a (single) bottle of beer in to the end of high school dance, unfortunately he dropped it & probably got what-for from the teachers!!
