Darryll Sherman takes readers back to the past. Those of us that grew up in the 70s remember the time through rose-colored glasses. It may not have been as great as we remember, but it was our era. Sherman reminds us that skorts were called culottes. Computers were something mad scientists or aliens used to take over the Earth. Cell phones hadn’t been invented yet. Bikes had banana seats and were only 1 speed. We played music on the record player or the 8 track tape player. We felt safe and could play outside. Neighbors watched after neighborhood kids. If you made a failing grade in school, they held you back. Cars were cool; a Cuda or a Roadrunner was everyone’s dream. Moms were there to greet you when you came home from school. She had a homemade meal and homemade pie cooking for dinner.
Thank you, Mr. Sherman, for the blast from the past. You have brought back many pleasant memories to this 70s child.
