I remember traveling alone by train. I believe I between 7 and 9 years-of-age and was going from Florida to New Jersey.
I remember spending all day outdoors playing in the woods, building forts, looking for snails. The only time constraints were to be home for meals and bedtime.
I remember when people put clear plastic over all the living room furniture to keep it clean, whether or not they had children. And the plastic stayed on when company came. We sat on it!
I remember being at a house that was on a party line, meaning neighbors shared the same phone line. If you picked up the phone when someone else was on it, you could hear the conversation or join in. I don’t think we ever had a party line.
I remember traveling to Seattle to go to college. On my first day I purchased a small typewriter in a red case. It served me for many, many years.
I remember attending the 1971 Atlanta International Pop Festival and waking up to hear Richie Havens singing “Here Comes the Sun.”
I remember going to concerts to hear Peter, Paul and Mary; Ike and Tina Turner; James Brown; Diana Ross; War; Harry Belafonte; and Prince……. when they were young!
