indexLet’s talk about age shall we you what happens when you live awhile. Jeff is 68 years old and is astounded by what he has had the privilege to witness. He saw the Korean War on something called TV he got to listen to old time radio and fondly remembers the shows Gunsmoke, the Shadow, Dragnet, the Lone Ranger, Abbott & Costello, Phillip Marlowe, the Great Gildersleeve, the Green Hornet, and Fibber McGee and Molly. If you want more go to Wikipedia and look up old radio programs. He has been able to listen to all type of music from Dean Martin, Perry Como, Dinah Shore, Frank Sinatra and Enrique Caruso. He has seen the birth of Rock and Roll and every major star it’s produced, many in person. He has seen radio replaced by TV, Video Tapes, and DVDs. He has seen man walk on the moon. He’s seen the world map change. He has seen legendary sports figures such as Bob Cousy, Sam Huff, Mickey Mantle, Arthur Ash, and Billy Gene King. He seen women role in the world improve, he’s witnessed desegregation, 18 year olds getting the right to vote. He has also seen how the world doesn’t learn from its mistakes. He has had the privilege of see every major world event since 1949 when his memory started to function. So for those of you getting older look back and see what you’ve been fortunate to see and experience like the birth of a child or grandchild don’t complain about getting older embrace it.
