Racsan, sorry to hear that LOL. You missed all the really cool stuff. The whole U.S. changed after the 60's, and not for the good. I am also originally from Ohio (Toledo) where I served my apprenticeship. 11 years in Florida and now 5 in Arkansas.
if you have never made a mistake, you probably haven't done much.
I do remember many things which happened with me in my childhood though my memory power is not that much strong yet i do remember coz childhood is a that part of ones life which is unforgettable... cheers
