Half A Century???

How can this be?


That's like half-a-century!

Fifty years ago the average income in the United States was $6,450.00.

The average cost of a new home was $13,600.00.

Gas was thirty-one cents a gallon.

A loaf of bread cost twenty-one cents.

This was the number one song in June of 1965:

And on June 17, 1965 the stylin' guy on the right graduated from William S. Hart Union High School in Newhall, California.

Once again begging the question, "What is such a young guy like me doing in such an old body???"
