(And, through eight posts [plus this image gallery] covering my memories of the '60s, I still never got around to mentioning Beanie & Cecil, Jonny Quest, Chickenman, "Terry" by Twinkle (on Tollie Records), cub scouts, Super 6, Secret Six, Secret Squirrel and Morocco Mole, Zsa Zsa Gabor, The Four Seasons, trying (and failing!) to learn to play coronet, "Teen Queen Of The Week" by Freddy Cannon (on Swan Records), To Tell The Truth, Monster Movie Matinee, bowling alleys, hamburgers and milkshakes at Carrolls, Road Runner, The Singing Nun, The Flying Nun, my dog Bear, the jukebox at The Moose Club, Suburban Park, Rocky and Bullwinkle, "Ring Of Smoke" by Ben Colder (on MGM Records), the mumps, fistfights, my sister's appearance with Miss Lorraine's dance students on Romper Room, tales of What-A-Jolly Street in 365 Bedtime Stories by Nan Gilbert, Spirograph, Operation, Twister, Stratego, Motorific racing cars, the North Syracuse Public Library, Quisp and Quake, Jan and Dean's "Little Old Lady From Pasadena," my cherished Batman Signet paperback, my brief kindergarten romance with a girl named Susette, The Sword In The Stone, Deborah Walley, Where Monsters Dwell, the original Broadway cast LP of Carnival, Julie Sommars, Krypto and the Space Canine Patrol Agents, Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol, and Beatles VI.
Decades are large; they contain multitudes. That was certainly true of my 1960s.)
