Few people remember this, but in SE Texas, 57 years ago, school kids had to walk uphill both to and from school, in the snow.

It hadn't even been born back then.

Once, when I was about 10 years old, I wanted to buy a German Luger from a mail order site for $39. My Dad said it was too much money.

I don't think .223 existed back then.

It was more of a black powder time period.
