I Was Born In the 60s

    Yup, I Was Born In Cave-man Days, Or Back In '68! :-d

    I was born during a troubled time in this nations' history, so I often felt like everybody stayed mad at me when the truth was the were mad about the war in Vietnam.I remember teachers even taking out the fury on me when I was too young to understand what the they were even angry...

    1965

    I was born in the age of the hippy, flower power, the maxi and the mini dress, hot-pants and some wicked soul singers. Motown was heavily played in my house. My mum was quite conservative in her dress although i do remember her wearing a mini dress but she used to enjoy making me...

    1967

    November 18, 1967, the world was blessed with my birth. lmao So of course I don't remember much until around the mid 70's. But hey, it is said that people, generally, don't have memories before the age of 7 or so.

    Too Young Or Too Old?

    My parents were born in the 30's.  I did not have hippies for parents.  My two brothers and one sister that came here before me are "Boomers."  My younger brother, born in 1976 is a Gen X-er.  What does that make me? A "Tweener?"  I was born in 1965...

    1967 Here

    Although I was born in the 60's I can't say I identify with it really at all. The 80's were much more of an influence on me than the 60's ever could been.

    Ah yes. Born 1966. Therefore a child of the

    70s (decimal coinage/soda streams/Bruce Forsyth on Saturday evening tele). A teen of the 80s (Yuppies/Thatcher/The Smiths/Bruce Forsyth on Saturday evening tele). Now a fat old fart of the 2010s (greedy bankers/coalition government/Bruce Forsyth on Saturday evening tele...)

    1963

    Yes , the near end of the "baby boom"; the start of the end of cultural unity  - but then the beginning of s different cultural unity.  But somehow in that shift something fundamental was lost -and we truly have become, "...a generatino, lost in space...

    1961

    I was born in 1961 and remember quite a bit from the 60's. My memory goes back to when I was about 1 year old. My mom and dad divorced before I was 2 and I remember when they were still together. I can remember watching the news when Kennedy was shot and I remember when Ringo...
