I LIKE reading this sort of list, they're fun, at least to me. There's other ways to make me feel young & stupid. I'm in my early 50's and there'll be people around for at least the next 30 years to consider me a young whippersnapper. Who knows, with medical research, it could be longer than that.
I'll put in that that's old enough that I had to stay in the hospital overnight to have my tonsils out, I remember the excitement over the first heart transplant and I was in first grade when the principal announced over the P.A. system that President Kennedy had been shot.___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Kevin_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
