YOU'VE WHARPED INTO A TIME                        ZONE FROM 1971

FROM AS EARLY AS THE 1920'S (THE ROARING TWENTIES) TO THE DAYS OF DRUGS, SEX, AND ROCK AND ROLL IN THE 1960's TO EARLY 1970's.  ALCOHOL AND CIGARETTE COMERCIALS WERE THE MAIN PART OF TV(TELEVISSION) COMMERCIALS.  I REMEMBER MY FIRST CRUSH, DEBBIE FLANAGAN, AND HOW I WORKED FOR THE WOODBRIDGE PARKS DEPT. IN THAT YEAR.  MY CAR WAS INPOUNDED SO I WOULD GET A RIDE FROM MY DRUMMER WHO WORKED THE SAME JOB.  AND INSTEAD OF GOING HOME, I WENT STRAIGHT TO MY GIRLFRIENDS HOUSE.  AND AT 19 YEARS OLD, WHO WOULDN'T.  I'D WATCH TV IN THE DEN OF HER PARENTS HOUSE WHILST THEY DINED.  AND I WOULD ALWAYS WATCH THE FLINSTONES, AND THIS COMMERCIAL WAS ALWAYS ON.  I CAN'T SAY THEY WERE THE GOOD OLD DAYS, WITH THE DRUGS AND VIET NAM BREWING.  BUT THERE WERE SOME FOND MEMORIES OF FREEDOM, TO DO WHAT YOU WANTED, AS OUR CONSTITUTION IN THE USA SAYS, YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO PUT ANYTHING YOU WANT IN YOUR BODY.  I SMOKED FOR THIRTY YEARS BEFORE QUITTING, AND FORTUNATELY I CAN STILL BREATHE.  BUT IF I COULD GO BACK, I WOULD HAVE QUIT THEN.  DON'T SMOKE, IF YOU DO, SAVE YOUR MONEY AND YOUR LIFE AND GO ON VACATION WITH THE MONEY YOU SAVE.  PAPA-TOM-POPE
