As a poor kid growing up, it was a challenge to have fun and not cost much, if anything. This book is specifically designed to let everybody know that fun doesnt have a price tag on it if an imagination and a warped sense of humor is part of the equation. Anybody can have a ton of fun, and make lifelong memories without getting into too much trouble. O.K. some of these stories are stretched to the borders of reality, but.................so what? Put yourself in the 60s and remember some of the stuff you pulled. As we go through the elementary school years, then junior high and high school, the fun gets more sophisticated. This will not be done though without having the goofy and stupid element ever present. If the warped sense of humor offends you in anyway, please accept this apology, and consider the source. The magic of the 1960s along with a small West Texas group of kids is an experience. Please consider the times compared to todays technology, and society. Back then, parents were to be loved, respected and feared, Nowadays, nobody knows the difference from beating a kid, and spanking a kid. What a shame. Also, there is a section about some of the cars back then. the 50s and 60s was the absolute pinnacle of power and beautiful design. Without the 60s, the muscle cars of the 70s would not have been born. Without the 60s, our music of the 70s and future decades would not have the roots to grow. Hippies, draft dodgers, moon walks, and the whole culture of youth changed drastically then. Teens came out of their controlled environment and grew in many directions. Some good, some not so good. many of the top performers were over-dosing on drugs. But, somehow, we made it through the 60s no worse for the wear. On the lighter side of growing up, you can now enjoy this era. Either by reading about it first hand, or bringing your own memories and comparing them. Either way, it will be fun, a lot of fun. GET READY TO LAUGH!!!
