    It Really Wasn't 45 Years Ago, Was It?

    Why do we think the good old days were the best? Because they made the memories for us to smile about as we age.  I owned every book and album (and still have them) that Rod ever wrote. I played them non-stop in college (much to the chagrin of my dorm-mates). I had the...
