When you reach my age the reality is that there are more good days behind you than in front of you. The year I want to visit is 1969 when I had a month to spend in Chicago on my Army furlough from Germany. I was old enough to go to that upscale Chicago singles bar, Butch McGuire’s on Division Street. The girls were beyond heavenly and the music rocked.
On the jukebox was some great music from that year I will share with you. Yes, I’m in a time warp trying so desperately to recapture my youth. You will recognize this great Laura Nyro song sung by Marilyn McCoo and the 5th Dimention!
When you revisit 1969, please stop at Holy Cross hospital on 28 March 10:53 pm as my mother gives birth to me.
Then please do me a favor, and take me AWAY from her, so that I can have a better second chance at life. Thank you.
Some of your posts also bring me back to my younger days. I too was in the Army stationed in Germany in the early 70's. Frankfurt was a pretty interesting town back then. I'd love to go back one day, but I'm sure I wouldn't recognize it after all these years. Where were you stationed during your hitch?
