Someone asked me the other day why I write these columns, Growing Up. I had to think about it for a minute. Originally, I intended for them to convey how much times have changed since I was born in 1955 compared to today. How we, both kids and adults, were so much freer back then compared to today. Unless you were alive in the late ‘50s, ‘60s, ‘70s, early ‘80s, it’s hard to understand how much this country has changed. Even the days pre-9/11 compared to today, what a change. Then, as I began writing more of them, as was the case with my flying columns, I found out how much I enjoy writing them. I probably wouldn’t reflect on some of these past events from my life if I didn’t go looking for one to write every week. What I write about are mostly fun experiences from my past, compared to the problems we face today.

HOW DARE YOU TALK THAT WAY ABOUT YOUR DAD!!!”
