The year: 1971

carol-and-me-1

Carol, Donna an me (me the skinny minnie on the right) discovered this Hideout. (Donna’s taking the picture from my Polaroid camera) In the wooded area near our houses, and just over the railroad tracks, we found this tin shack. It wasn’t surprising since “hobos” often frequented the trains. A pipe suck out of the so-called roof where the smoke from the inside-makeshift-fire-place could escape. We never built a fire, nor did we ever sleep there. But it was a place to go at the age of 15 to get away from (egads) the parents and the world. It was there we puffed on cigarettes.

1971, when the New York Times begins to publish sections of the Pentagon Papers showing the US Government had been lying to the American People.

  • Jim Morrison of The Doors is found dead
  • Love Story (“Love means never having to say you’re sorry) airs
  • Disney World opens!

And then, we have:

There’s more. Much more. But some secrets must be kept!  🙂
