REVISIT THE 60s!!!!!!!! Part Ten

HIP HIP HOORAY - what FUN this has been!!!!!!!!!

The 60s was a decade dominated by war - the effects of Vietnam (although not a world war) were felt worldwide. The 60s was the start of showing that people can effect politics. Student demonstrations began. JFK became the 35th president and he was assassinated in November, 1963. These are events we will never forget. It was 1969 when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. WOW!!!!!!!!
The smiley face became popular! Women wore mini skirts and leather boots - men wore paisley shirts and bell bottoms. The innocence of the 50s turned into the hippie generation. It was a decade of change (but, aren't they all?). I have mostly great memories of the 60s....I loved the music, the movies, the television....I loved the innocence! I walked to school...I played in the streets most nights...there were NO cell phones or computers....we had only about four TV channels and TV was BLACK and WHITE (at least for us it was!!)...we actually KNEW our neighbors and those kids were our best friends!! I'll never forget the innocence and the happiness that was the 60s!!!
This has been GGGGGGGGREAT fun and I hope you enjoyed our trip down memory lane!!!

COMMENT to be eligible to win!!! I will pick two winners of the Rural Jardin fat quarters this, keep watching and STAY TUNED!!!!!!!!

REVISIT THE 60s!!!!!!!!! Part Nine

My, how time flies!!!! PART 9 of our 60s celebration!!!
If memory serves me, men started out with short almost "crew cut" hairstyles in 1960 and by 1965 or so, we were growing it out a la The Beatles. It wouldn't be long before really LONG hair came into vogue.
It was easier to find womens hair styles of the 60s...check 'em out!!!
This has been FUN for me....stay tuned....more nostalgia to come....and please comment to be eligible to win the Rural Jardin fat quarters!!
