Take a trip in time back to the Fifties and relive the culture, the icons and everyday life that made it a very special time. Also a brief look at the racism and McCarthyism that marked the era..

Nice Paul. 😉
Golly gee, Paul, I haven’t thought about a lot of those things for more than half a century. Thanks for the memories. :’)
Hey Enbe. we need a break every once in a while. Hope it made everyone smile. At least for a few minutes.
Wish I were back there . . . much simpler times.

White Castles! I can still taste ’em!
what may have not been so much mentioned…was Nam…was on the table, politically even then…Eisenhower advised to get out….did not happen….and so the 50’s were tainted via a lack of political will, understanding and threw myself and countless others into the war in Vietnam.(1960’s).a mad fighting war…2+ M Vietnamese are reported killed via the US being there…NEARLY 60th us soldiers..died directly……and hunrds…of thousands indirectly….
Myself, was not wounded…except of heart……..it and the Korean War are mostly forgotten………………How Convenient……well!!!Not Really…cause to disavow is to rerun again….. on US Soil…………I wonder!!?

lovely memories of a much easier time (I still have my skate key 🙂
Thanks for posting that video, Paul. I often forget how nice things were in the 1950s. My children and grandchildren will never know how simple and uncomplicated times were when I was a kid.
no my grand kids have no idea either. even though i try to explain it to them they cant comprehend it.
