I had two best buddies I hung around with in my neighborhood all the time, plus as Thor said, plenty of others we'd see all the time. Park and playground area one street over from my street with baseball diamond and a basketball court. Had another best friend who lived across town who I'd gab on the phone with a lot and hung out with at school.

All this old times talk is making me nostalgic.....

We didn't realize it then, but we were pretty lucky, huh? Pretty remarkable era.

As decades go, it's hard to beat the 70's.

Especially the early 70's.

Around '76 it started slowly turning to sh*t, even though for me personally, the late 70's from '78 on, were some of my own best times.

The early 80's weren't bad, but the magic was nearly gone by then.

Of course that might all just be my own perception based the chronology of my own life and experiences.

But even still, viewing it from an unbiased perspective, I think the 70's were the best times socially and culturally.

As a young girl, the parents of all the kids would congregate on the front step of someone's house, drinking coffee and smoking while we kids played dodgeball in the street. Now, kids kill old men with traffic cones or show up at a Minions movie wearing suits and acting like sh*ts!

That first part I'm used to. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Kill, kill, kill. The Minions thing, though, is disturbing.

I have to say that I'm glad I got to experience the 50s, 60s and 70s, from the standpoint of the various ages I was during each era.
