Thread Name: Have you told your kids about the 60s?
Subject: RE: Have you told your kids about the 60s?
David Lodge, in his novel following a group of fellow students over their next ¼-century, "How Far Can You Go?", says at one point something like "It was really the seventies now, but these people were having their sixties a little late". Like Phil above, it was the early 70s that I had my hair long and went on wearing the floral shirts &c I had bought in Carnaby St in the v late 60s. (Can still just about get into one of them -- you will find it on a couple of trax on my Youtube Channel!). The sixties were a frame of mind and a form of fashion rather than a specific decade, running from about 57-74.
I haven't told my kids for the simple reason that philoprogentitivity has never been a hobby of mine.
