My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

Were You Born in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s or early 80’s?


If you were, check out this YouTube video, it will bring a smile to your day! πŸ™‚

I saw this recently at a couple of other blogs (thanks Val) and just loved it.

I grew up in the 60’s-70’s so I could definitely relate to most of what was included on this video.


Have a fab weekend!πŸ™‚

  1. Awesome video clip, Geraldine! Yes, I too watched it over at Valerie’s blog earlier this week.

    Have a FAB weekend, my friend πŸ™‚

  2. I loved watching this and this is so true. We survived and thrived during that time, not like a lot of the kids nowadays. I feel sorry for all they are missing.

  3. Your welcome, Geraldine, I pinched it from someone else. Couldn’t resist!

  4. oh, how i remember climbing trees as a child/ young adult… loved hiking outdoors to my favorite rocks and yes, i survived… i wish i could inspire that feeling in my daughter as she grew up with video games and cell phones. she doesn’t understand the fun she’s missed out on, sigh… hope all is well. have a great day~

  5. lol – I was laughing watching this because one of nieces and I were talking about this the other day. We’re raising generations of spoiled brats.

  6. Loved the video, didn’t like some of the comments bashing liberal attitudes.
    But I suppose that’s something else we learned to accept: different opinions.

  7. Ron, I was glad to find this clip still available over at YouTube as it’s been removed from some blogs now, that I looked at. I think it’s a keeper!

    I hear you Joe and I agree! πŸ™‚

    I’m glad you did Val, such a good message and feel-good kind of video too!

    Naquillity, hopefully some of the parents of children now are beginning to realize just how important all that outdoor playtime actually is and are getting their kids outside more instead of playing with video games and surfing the Web too much. It’s so worth it, isn’t it?

    I was kind of “spoiled” myself Kim, the youngest and the only girl. But I loved it too! πŸ˜‰ You should have seen the dollhouse i had, it was huge!!!! LOL

    Friko, Thanks for stopping by and welcome to MPP.

    I agree, not everything about that era was good. What comes to mind for me that was negative and wrong was the harsh discipline (severe spankings, the strap…) that were all too often doled out by parents and even principals of schools, in those days. It was acceptable then but now it would be considered child abuse. Different opinions can be a very good thing, I agree.

    Happy Weekend to All, G

  8. geesh my comments keep on disappearing yes \I remember born in 1959 will be 55 on April 21, gifts welcome, kidding
