I'm honest. I remember. You could still get 15 cent hamburgers in the early 60s. Was it better then? If you could go back simply by giving up your cells, 50 inch tvs and remotes, internet, laptops, ipods, ipads, air conditioning, food processors, long life batteries, and whatever, would you?

What would be the most difficult to give up? What would you like to have back to add to our current life....besides the background music?

By the way who were the 2 couples walking abreast just before Liz and Eddie? It goes too fast at that point for me to focus on them.

I was born in '55 but remember many of the things shone especially the skates and that kids never went anywhere without their skate key dangling from their necks. I also remember McDonalds restaurants as for a short time I lived just down the block from the McDonald's restaurant in San Bernardino, CA that inspired Ray Kroc into the business and lent it's name to the business. Even with food incredibly cheap, the few times we got to go there, my mom would still make every two of us split a small French fry bag!

Other than the Lone Ranger and Tonto, I didn't know many of the film characters or TV ones as most of my growing up years I lived in a monarchy and my mom decided how much TV we could watch, or even if we had a TV. I never went to a movie until I was in at least 6th grade and probably only saw maybe 5-6 movies at a theatre before I graduated college!

Still many of those pictures brought back memories.
